Manage your hearing
Looking after your hearing aids
You’ll find most of it pretty straight forward to manage yourself (that’s the way we designed it). Here’s some handy tips and tricks.
Aren't all hearing aid places the same?
Sameness. That’s exactly what Peter Blamey and Elaine Saunders saw. In 2008 Blamey Saunders hears began with the mission of placing every Australian at the centre of their hearing health – breaking the mould of an inward-looking industry.
We believe accessibility is key – from how you get care and advice through to buying hearing aids and making ongoing adjustments. We’re structured to offer what works best for you. Over the phone, online or in person. The best audiological care and hearing aids are within easy reach.
It starts with the hearing test, which was pioneered to give scientifically accurate results without the need to visit a clinic. A real-world test using words as opposed to mechanical beeps. This innovation alone has led to international awards and recognition.
You have access to the best hearing technology from Sonova, the world’s leading provider of innovative hearing care solutions. When you’re ready, simply purchase the hearing aids online or over the phone. We’ll adjust them (according to your test results) and express post them—ready to wear straight out of the box.
We’ve been offering telehealth for audiology for years. We call it teleaudiology and it means you’re always only a phone call or click away from help. We’re able to deliver all non-diagnostic hearing services over a phone or video call. It’s like having us in your living room.
Start with the hearing test or talk to us and hear the difference for yourself!
Adjusting your hearing aids
When you buy with Blamey Saunders hears either online or via our telehealth team, we ship your hearing aids ready-to-wear based on your recent hearing report or online test results. If your test results show that your hearing falls outside a mild to moderate range, you may need to visit a clinic for adjustments.
Most of the time we can adjust your hearing aid settings over the phone, a video call, or via the app that pairs with your hearing aids. It’s like turning your living room into a consultation room!
Self adjusting your hearing aids
Once you’ve downloaded the app for your hearing aids, it’s easy to make adjustments on-the-go, on your phone.
You can also make manual volume and program changes using the rocker switch on the side of your hearing aids.
Cleaning your hearing aids
Keep your hearing aids nice and clean. Wax build up can eventually affect the sound quality, so a regular quick clean is recommended.
Certain parts of the hearing aid will also need extra attention periodically.
How to clean
Changing wax stop
Cleaning acoustic tubes
The acoustic tube should be cleaned once a month or more frequently if you feel there’s a diminished output from the hearing aid.
- Remove tube from the hearing aid
- Remove the ear tip
- Grab cleaning wire and tube
- Push wire all the way through the tube
- Reattach the tube to hearing aid and ear tip to tube
Changing ear tips
It’s recommended to change the ear tips around every three months.
