We help people take control of their hearing with quality, affordable hearing aids.
How do we do it?
Excellent sound quality, reliable online advice and service, low price, and you can take control
Blamey Saunders hearing aids are affordable, discreet and highly effective. Award-winning Australian technology, developed for use in the bionic ear, makes amplified sound natural and comfortable and the IHearYou® system is so simple and intuitive that users can tune their hearing aids at home.
Our after-sales support is friendly, effective, and efficient
Over the past few years, we have sold thousands of hearing aids online and face-to-face through our Melbourne clinic to people in all parts of Australia. Most of our online clients set up their hearing aids with little or no extra help from us. Many others use our telephone, online or remote support services to access the additional help they need to set up or adjust their hearing aids.
You can choose remote monitoring of your hearing aid use and system adjustments, allowing our support staff to provide more tailored guidance and to set up any replacement hearing aids to your specifications.
The tele-health way of the future
Our friendly staff can see your hearing aid settings on our computers, and if you adjust your hearing aids at home using IHearYou®, we can see that too (if you choose to allow it). If you would like assistance, our tele-health system and our knowledgeable staff provide unprecedented personal support. We stay connected to you and and are only an email or phone call away.
Blamey Saunders hears has a reputation for delivering very high levels of satisfaction, indicated by our low return rates and numerous positive customer testimonials.
Low prices and a fair deal for everyone
We have developed a direct-to-consumer model that provides excellent hearing aid outcomes at a realistic price. We do this by:
- Allowing you to pay only for the services you need instead of bundling services into the price of hearing aids. Bundled services often account for over half the cost of hearing aids from other suppliers.
- Enabling you to buy direct from the inventors of breakthrough technology, developed for the bionic ear. Blamey Saunders hears understand how to deliver the technology most effectively and efficiently.
- Providing online sales and service. Internet transactions and communication eliminate some costs and give you fast access to products and expert advice via phone and email.
- Enabling you to set up your own hearing aids. Self-fitting eliminates expensive and time consuming visits to an audiologist as well as ensuring that you get the outcome you want.
We do not compromise on quality.
Proven high quality hearing aids
The adaptive ADRO® amplifier technology in our hearing aids has been tested in clinical trials and was preferred by 75% of users in two studies and 19 out of 20 users in another study when compared to the compression technology used in most conventional hearing aids.
Blamey Saunders hearing aids deliver natural sound quality using five state-of-the-art technologies:
Hearing loss from mild to severe
- 32 or 64 channels of digital processing automatically keep sound clear and comfortable
- Automatic adaptive directional microphone makes speech stand out from background noise
- Advanced feedback cancellation prevents whistling and improves sound quality even for music
- Ultra-low delay processing of 2 milliseconds means no distortion or echo
- Open-fit technology increases physical comfort and reduces visibility of the devices
Blamey Saunders hearing aids are suitable for clients with mild, moderate, and severe hearing problems. They can help to reduce the problems associated with tinnitus. Call or email us to discuss your hearing further.
Today is the day to make hearing easier
The best way to find out if you need hearing aids is when you realise you sometimes have trouble hearing. Your brain is a very good diagnostic tool and is showing you need assistance. If you do try to soldier on without help, your family will probably let you know if you are not communicating effectively. Listen to them – they mean well and are almost certainly right.
Traditional hearing tests (audiograms) are conducted with soft tones in a sound proof room. This is quite different to listening to everyday sounds in a noisy world. So if you think you have trouble hearing sometimes, then our hearing aids will help make listening easier. All you need to do is use IHearYou® to tell them what you want to hear, and the hearing aid takes care of the rest.
That’s because you know your ears best.
Our company encourages you to take action
Over three million Australians experience difficulty hearing but 80% do nothing about it. Unfortunately, hearing is a "use it or lose it" sense and by the time most people seek help, much of their ability to hear is lost. The founders of Blamey Saunders hears, Professor Peter Blamey and Dr Elaine Saunders, recognised that poor sound quality, high prices and inconvenience play a significant role in people avoiding action. Blamey Saunders hears provides a simple, cost-effective solution to better hearing so that you can act now.
Choose a model that suits your preferences
Any of our online hearing aids (SIE-64, SIE-32 and LOF) are suitable for people with mild to moderate/severe hearing difficulties. The choice between these models is largely one of personal preference – it’s about what is most important to you - price, size, performance in noise, battery life...
All three models include five state-of-the-art core technologies. In addition, the SIE-64 offers advanced noise reduction features, voice prompts, a telecoil and an improved volume control compared to the SIE-32. The LOF is larger than the SIE models, but easier to manipulate, with longer battery life, and is the lowest in price.
For people with very severe hearing loss (for example if you cannot hear one-on-one speech in a quiet room, and cannot use a telephone at all), we have more powerful BTE-64 hearing aids which are only available through our Melbourne clinic. Email us for more information.
