How Do You Know it's Time to See an Audiologist for Your Hearing?

There are many different signs that you may need to see an audiologist, including:

  • Increased difficulty in understanding or hearing when others are speaking.
  • Straining to hear in busy locations, such as restaurants, shopping centres, and grocery stores.
  • Difficulty following a conversation.
  • Having to ask people to repeat what they said numerous times.
  • Inability to determine where certain sounds are coming from.
  • Tinnitus (a buzzing, hissing, or high-pitched ringing in the ears).
  • Have your television or radio turned up to loud volumes.

It is highly recommended that you book an appointment with one of our Sunshine Coast-based audiologists if you've noticed any of the signs above.

Our Audiology Services on the Sunshine Coast

We offer a range of audiology and hearing services at Hear and Say, including hearing tests and hearing aids, using cutting-edge technology to assess your hearing health and provide you with accurate results.

Our local hearing experts are qualified to provide you with the following services:

Adult Hearing Tests

Unlike some other clinics, we conduct a full diagnostic hearing test for adults that doesn't only identify the nature and severity of your hearing loss but also tests for other issues. These include acoustic reflexes, pure tone audiometry, and tympanometry.

We also test for speech discrimination, which identifies your ability to understand what other people are saying at certain noise levels.

Hearing Screening

A more basic test, a hearing screening is a quick exam to see if your hearing levels are within the normal range. This is often used initially to determine if further examination is needed.

Cochlear Implant Candidacy Assessments

For those that need them, a cochlear implant evaluation will be conducted. This will include audiology, speech, and language assessments as well as a comprehensive medical. The outcome of this exam will determine if you are a suitable candidate for a cochlear implant.

Experts in hearing for children and adults

Hearing Aids

Our hearing aid test service is designed to look at whether a hearing aid or cochlear implant would be the better solution for your needs. Soft sounds will be played across a variety of pitches, and once assessed, you’ll be given all of the information you need to decide which hearing device is best for you.

What Happens at a Hearing Aid Fitting?

We understand that you may be anxious ahead of your hearing aid fitting, but there's no need to worry. As soon as you arrive at the Hear and Say hearing aid clinic, we'll do everything within our power to make you feel as comfortable as possible during the process of your fitting.

You'll be given our recommendations and advice on which hearing aid would be best for you, including information on premium hearing aid technology, and as we aren't connected to any particular hearing aid manufacturer, you know that you'll be given trusted, honest opinions.
