At Victorian Hearing, we strive to ensure the best possible outcomes for everyone. To achieve this, we adhere to Best Practices in Audiology, which incorporate evidence-based standards and protocols tailored to deliver optimal results for each individual. Additionally, we invest in comprehensive training for our staff, ensuring they are equipped to provide the highest quality of audiological service and care.
This commitment can involve our staff being sent interstate and even overseas to learn from leading experts in the field.

This results in precise diagnostic testing and superior hearing rehabilitation outcomes.

Best Practice Hearing Aid Fitting Prescriptions

Thanks to the National Acoustics Laboratory (NAL), world-leading research is conducted into hearing aid fitting prescriptions and best practice audiology standards in Australia. This research has been conducted and implemented in Australia’s audiology clinics for decades and has since been adopted around the world. As a result, Australia is a world- leader in matching prescriptive targets when fitting hearing aids. Comparatively, only 40% of hearing aids fitted in the USA meet prescriptive targets, and matching prescriptive targets has only been a focus in the UK for the past 10 years and in France for the past two years.

Best Practice Hearing Aid Verification

To get optimal results from your hearing aids it is important that verification is part of the fitting process. Hearing aids need to be set up based not only on your hearing loss and communication needs but also on how the hearing aid interacts within your ear. The anatomy of every ear canal is different, so verification takes this ear canal resonance into account as part of the hearing aid programming. This is an important part of Victorian Hearing’s best practice protocol. We believe that this is one of the main reasons our clients are successful with their hearing aids and are achieving their listening goals.

#1 Lyric Provider in Australia

Phonak Lyric
Victorian Hearing’s evidence-based, best-practice approach to hearing aid fitting has led us to be recognised as the #1 Lyric Provider in Australia. Lyric is an extended-wear hearing aid, worn 24/7, that does not require daily insertion, removal, cleaning or battery change like other hearing aids. Fitting the Lyric hearing aid requires special expertise and certification, of which all Victorian Hearing audiologists have achieved. This means that when you attend Victorian Hearing for a Lyric trial or fitting, you are being fitted by the top provider in the country.
