Our business model
The hearing industry is dominated by large multinational chains that have invested heavily in their clinic networks and head office support offices. These are expensive to maintain, so their customers pay higher prices.
To make hearing technology more affordable, The Hearing Heroes model removes the clinic network from the process. We pass the savings on to you through more affordable prices.
When our audiologists check your hearing test results (audiogram), there’s a chance they will recommend you meet a clinician face-to-face. This may be due to the nature of your hearing loss or the answers provided in our lifestyle questionnaire. We are unable to control what our partner clinics charge for these additional professional services.
To keep our business simple and our staff overheads low, The Hearing Heroes has chosen not to deal with government funding agencies. However you will find that our prices are typically lower that what you would pay if you qualified for a government subsidy.
Cost of hearing aids bought elsewhere = $6000
Government subsidy = $ 1400 Cost of hearing aids to you with subsidy = $4600
Cost of same hearing aids through The Hearing Heroes without any subsidy = $4000
