Hearing aids can be fitted in multiple ways: Quickly or Well.
Hearing is done by the ears, but understanding is the job of the brain. So, both need attention, and our process does exactly that. We may use a proprietary app-based Hearing Rehabilitation Program designed to teach the brain through auditory training how to understand better.
Hearing and Understanding are two fundamentally different things. As we lose hearing over time the brain loses the ability to process sounds like noises and speech correctly. It is starting to make mistakes resulting in poorer speech understanding. When getting hearing aids for the first time, everything sounds different than it did before.
The brain needs to learn how to process those ‘new’ sounds correctly. For this purpose, we use a proprietary app-based Hearing Rehabilitation Program designed to teach the brain through auditory training how to understand better. This is key to success with new hearing aids and is included in the fitting of your devices. Ear Studio is the only Australian clinic using this approach which has been gold standard in Germany for decades.
To support you in your rehabilitation journey, we use an exclusive hearing rehabilitation program prior to purchasing any hearing aids.
This comprehensive process offers the opportunity to acclimatise to new speech and environmental sounds ensuring you can process and understand the sounds, we can make finer acoustic adjustments, and evaluate clinical outcomes in order to identify the benefits of the selected hearing aids before any decision is made.
We see private patients as well as pensioners and veterans. Under the Hearing Services Program of the Australian Government, some services are fully covered for pensioners.
As an approved provider of the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA), we are ready to support Worker’s Compensation cases with diagnostic services and aural rehabilitation treatment.
Most hearing clinics in Australia have a 30-day money-back guarantee paying upfront before understanding how well the process and the hearing aids actually will work.
Through our exclusive rehabilitation process patients have approximately 3-4 weeks of real-life hearing aid experience prior to making a decision. Once hearing aids are purchased, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.
In our experience, this is rarely, if not needed at all. We find that you know exactly how well the hearing aids work well before the final decision and purchase are made.
“No patient is provided with a hearing solution without first going through our proprietary
rehabilitation process. Our process is designed to identify the hearing solution that ensures the highest outcomes are achieved for each individual patient. Our approach is driven by rehabilitation outcomes and not commercial interests – an approach very different to that of most hearing clinics.”

Especially when getting a hearing aid for the first time the rehabilitation process is of utmost importance. The brain has not heard well for some time and we slowly need to guide the brain to better speech understanding If it is rushed you may not hear satisfactorily. Only once the brain can process sounds well we can evaluate the true benefit of a hearing solution – before you buy.
Most people in Australia upgrade or replace their hearing aids every 4-5 years. However, just because there is new technology it does not mean you can hear better with it. Before purchasing new hearing devices we recommend going through a solid
rehabilitation process to identify the benefit of a potential upgrade. Then you can make a confident decision.
