At Dr Vass Hearing, we are dedicated to correctly assessing and testing hearing for adults and children (aged 4+). Dr Vass has over 35 years’ experience in hearing health and is Canberra’s only independent Doctor of Audiology. He has strong, extensive clinical experience and knowledge enabling him to provide the best in advice and the latest in technology. As an extension of his experience and beliefs, our clinic is committed to offering independent and professional advice.
Our services include diagnostic hearing assessments, hearing aids and fittings, custom hearing protection, swim plugs, hearing aid repairs and cleaning, assisted listening devices, diagnostic hearing tests, batteries and accessories, and offer a drop-in service for minor repairs to existing clients.
We are accredited to provide services through the Commonwealth Hearing Services Program to qualified pensioners and DVA clients.
The initial assessment gives you valuable insight into the individual characteristics of your hearing and an understanding of the cognitive effects hearing loss has on the brain. You are most welcome to bring a family member or friend along to your initial assessment for support. Dr Vass’ patient-centred approach to his practice gives him a comprehensive understanding of the effect hearing health has not only on an individual experiencing potential hearing loss, but also on the people around them.
A full diagnostic hearing test will include pure-tone air and bone conduction, speech discrimination, and tympanometric tests. Hearing assessments also include:

Aftercare & servicing
All devices fitted by Dr Vass are guaranteed lifetime support by Dr Vass and his team. Some of these services include:
