How we select hearing aids
A Better Ear is a privately owned and fully independent specialty hearing rehabilitation clinic who is not owned or controlled by a hearing device manufacturer or supplier.
All hearing devices prescribed at A Better Ear are selected based on what is clinically appropriate for the person being treated and what best meets their goals.
A Better Ear has no preferred supplier agreement and no minimum volume requirements with any device manufacturer or supplier. To ensure clinical integrity A Better Ear, its staff, and directors, accept no commission or incentive payments related to the supply of devices.
To assists in reducing the costs of devices to patients and to the business, A Better Ear has negotiated wholesale discounts from the following device manufacturers and suppliers.
When selecting the right device for each person, we use the evidence-based clinical methodology referred to as patient-centred-care. This kind of shared decision-making is at the core of our business. We are proud of our clinical integrity and work hard to maintain it.

“Penny and Damien were just so nice and very professional. Penny was so thorough and explained every step of the process to my mum who is 86. Damien also ensured mum felt comfortable. Would definitely recommend A Better Ear before going anywhere else. Mum and I are more than happy” – Gail, Manly, QLD 4179
