Hearing Aids Styles: All Major Brands

As a family owned independent hearing centre, we supply all the major brands.

Once we discuss your hearing needs, we recommended certain styles and features that may be of benefit to you. Sometimes even lower cost hearing aids may be sufficient for your needs, yet some may choose fully featured hearing aids with advanced wireless technologies.

The latest technology helps you connect to people and devices like never before.

Smart Phone Connected

The newest hearing aids connect to your smart-phone so that the phone can be used as a remote control. Phone calls and music can be streamed directly to your hearing aids. Television can be transmitted wirelessly to your hearing aids.


There are even more accessories available such as remote wireless microphones, rechargeable options.

Our aim is to make your listening as easy and seamless as possible. You don’t want to keep adjusting your hearing aids.

Receiver in the canal (thin wire) MP_on_ear_side

Receiver in the canal (thin wire)

Our most popular style. A discreet style that usually won’t block up your ears to keep sounds as natural as possible. Great for early hearing losses and the common higher frequency losses seen with age or noise damage. Can connect to your mobile phone as a remote control or sound streaming, and to TV sound transmitters and remote microphones. These have directional microphones and some are rechargeable too.

Completely in the canal IIC_on_ear_side

Completely in the canal

This model is only suitable if your ear canal isn’t too narrow. A great choice for more moderate losses where you don’t mind your ear being nearly fully blocked. Truly hidden deeper in the canal.

In the canal CIC_on_ear_side

In the canal

A great small size which allows for more ear ventilation and directional microphones to reduce noise. Available with an on/off switch if required.

Half Shell ITC_on_ear_side

Half shell

The larger size allows for a more powerful model for much larger losses. Easier to manage should you have some dexterity issues.

Full shell ITE_on_ear_side

Full shell

Usually ordered for very large losses or if someone has difficulty managing hearing aids. An optional on/off switch, longer battery life and larger size make them easier to hold and manage.

Behind the Ear<br />

Behind the ear

Common for large losses or very narrow ear canals where a clear moulded piece is placed in the ear and the aid behind the ear. The moulds can be remade without sending the aids off, keeping you on-the-air during that time. Also loan aids can be supplied if an aid is being repaired. Might be easier to manage for some clients with larger controls behind the ear.

What Clients Are Saying...

"For many years now I have suffered from deafness. I have tried about six different hearing aids and none of them has been successful. However, in August 2013, I purchased a set of hearing aids from a company trading as WHAT at Lane Cove. These hearing aids are much better than any of the others that I have tried. They can be adjusted in an instant by simply pressing the aid in the right year for increasing the volume or pressing the aid in the left ear for decreasing the volume. A simple quick discrete touch of the aid is all that is needed adjusts the aid. I feel very confident that you will experience the joy that I have had in using these hearing aids."
Bill Cape, NS

"Having been a patient of WHAT Hearing Centre for 11 years and being fitted with 2 excellent hearing aids; my degenerative deafness caused by Malaria reached a point where I needed a Cochlear Implant. Throughout all of my experiences, Damian and his team have been outstanding in their care, advice and professionality. Now I have my first Cochlear Implant and can hear better than I have for 2 decades! It's like a new phase of life handed to me. Without Damian's thoroughness and incredible knowledge & help, I doubt I would have taken the journey to where I am today. Sincere thanks and my family thanks you too for enabling their Dad/Grandad/partner to communicate fully once again!"
Andrew McCourt, LIndfield NSW

"It has been amazing the difference these hearing aids have made. I'm hearing things clearer now that I didn't hear before. Excellent service. Friendly professional staff."
N. Cannon, NSW

"The staff. I love the two pleasant ladies at the front desk. We talk like we are family. And for you Damian to come out to our house since my husband is quite sick has been so appreciated. A very pleasant experience. Also the hearing aids fit comfortably and don't whistle like the old hearing aids. He loves hearing so much better."
Mr and Mrs Connors, NSW
