Better hearing outcomes
The hearing aid fitting process
A scientific and collaborative process personalised for each ear
The team at Victorian Hearing view the hearing aid fitting as both a scientific and collaborative process, ensuring the best results are obtained. Current hearing aids have computer chips inside them that must be personalised to each individual ear. Because of this, a series of computerised measurements and verification processes are carried out to prescribe and fit each aid.
Throughout the process, we will consult with you to determine how you feel about the sound of your devices, with adjustments made accordingly to suit your preferences. Our experts work tirelessly to ensure every pair of hearing aids is comfortable, produces quality sound, and is ready to be worn home immediately. You will also be shown how your model works, how to insert each one in your ears (if a daily worn style), and how to best maintain them to keep them in optimal working order.
Hearing Aid Fittings
Our university-qualified audiologists have extensive audiological experience and strive to ensure every patient is recommended the right device and receives a perfect fit for the best results. Nevertheless, we know that the decision to try hearing aids can be difficult for some people, especially when trying them for the first time. Most people take a long time to reach that decision point, in fact, research tells us it can take around 7 years for people to have experienced hearing difficulties before they will make the call that hearing aids are the next step. If you are feeling unsure about whether hearing aids are the right step for you, a hearing aid trial is a standard part of our fitting process. This means not only will you be professionally fitted with your chosen devices, but you will have the reassurance and peace of mind knowing that they can be easily returned or exchanged if your experience of wearing them does not suit you.

Get the most out of your hearing aids
Having hearing aids individual fitted by one of our audiology professionals is the best way to ensure the comfort and effectiveness of your hearing aid, whether it is an invisible or a more traditional model. Our audiologists will also prepare you for what to expect from your new hearing aid and help you to acclimatise to your new world of sound.
When you first get hearing aids, we recommend that you wear your hearing aids as much as possible. Research has shown the hearing aids stimulate the auditory nerve and help maintain the clarity of speech you hear for your long-term future. Quite simply, the more you wear the hearing aids, the more benefit you will receive.
