Are you looking for your ideal hearing aid match to feel more confident, included and
to enjoy life more? Before purchasing your hearing aids, read our list of 5 things you
need to consider first!

  1. HEARING TEST
    Obtain a thorough evaluation from an experienced audiologist registered with
    the HPCSA. Reliable results are vital when your hearing aid options are
    considered.
  2. PRIORITY LIST
    Discuss your hearing challenges related to your lifestyle, career and hobbies
    with your audiologist. This will give her a better understanding of your
    priorities and motivation so that she can make appropriate recommendations.
  3. FINANCIAL PLAN
    Plan ahead for the payment of your hearing aids, with the assistance of your
    audiologist, and stay within your budget. You may consider using your
    medical aid benefits, buying on credit or financing your new hearing aids.
  4. THE RIGHT HEARING CARE PROFESSIONAL
    Today’s sophisticated hearing aids require the expertise of a professional with
    experience in selecting and fitting of hearing aids. Choose an audiologist you
    can trust. Also, make sure your audiologist offers the following, to ensure a
    successful outcome:
    – An assortment of hearing aid brands.
    – A free trial period with hearing aids.
    – A money-back guarantee.
    – Good after sales services like free follow-ups or up to 3-year hearing aid
    repair plan.
    The above benefits will ensure your satisfaction and are all available at The
    Hearing Clinic (www.gehoor.co.za).
  5. SUPPORT SYSTEM
    Get your family, friends and even co-workers on board with your decision.
    Their support during your journey to better hearing will make it even more
    successful.
