No Hearing Test, No Appointment. From Pandemic Necessity to Superior Hearing: 

Discover How PocketAid’s Direct-to-Consumer Hearing Aids Changed the Game for Australians with Mild to Moderate Hearing Loss.

The development of the PocketAid range of hearing aids is a story rooted in data, innovation, and a deep commitment to user-centric design. It all began during the Covid-19 pandemic, a time when audiology clinics were hit with thousands of Australians unwilling to attend in-person hearing test or hearing aid fitting appointments. 

The PocketAid representative said;

“In 2019-2020, at a time when we were servicing Australians via in-person consultations, we were faced with a significant challenge. As the Covid-19 pandemic unfolded, we noticed a growing reluctance among our customers to attend in-person hearing consultations. Despite this, the demand for hearing support and maintenance remained unchanged, with hundreds of customers still desperately requiring new hearing aids.”

It was during this period that the team, in collaboration with skilled engineers, decided to take a bold step forward. They set out to develop a hearing aid that could be delivered directly to users, and be ready to use straight out-of-the-box, eliminating the need for traditional hearing tests and appointments. 

The methodology for the hearing aid sound qualities was rooted in audiology data. A database of over 1,000 real-world audiograms from clients with a wide spectrum of hearing challenges was utilised to inform the frequency responses and digital programming of the hearing aids. The results were extraordinary. A large proportion of users reported better outcomes with this new no-test and no-appointment hearing aid, than with the traditional hearing aids that they had spent thousands of dollars on.

The PocketAid hearing aid range has now expanded to offer a range of hearing aid options to Australians with mild to moderate hearing loss. By leveraging audiology data and prioritising the needs of its users, PocketAid has now created a lineup of hearing aids that not only meets the demands of easy access and affordability, but also empowers individuals with mild- moderate hearing loss to reconnect with the sounds of life they have been missing.

The PocketAid representative said;

“Today, the PocketAid product range has grown to include three remarkable hearing aids, all available to be ordered online or via phone order, and at very low prices relative to traditional expensive aids (starting from $429). All are ready to use straight our-of-the-box. Each one features sound qualities that have been meticulously customised in Australia, building upon the foundational insights we’ve gathered.”

Options include very discreet behind-the-ear and in-the-ear style models. PocketAid offers standard warranties and a 30-day money-back guarantee. They also have local phone support in Australia.
