Independent local hearing centre

Registered ACC Provider/Supplier

Short waiting


Easy to book appointments



It's been a dream come true to move to New Zealand, life really did begin at 40!  Now it’s a further dream come true to form HEARO, in Te Awamutu, my home town, where we have a created a clinic with an individual, boutique, friendly feel, at 61 Alexandra Street. We are also lucky enough to provide our services at our HEARO Anglesea Clinic Pharmacy in Hamilton, plus clinics in Matamata, and Cambridge.


With the latest state of the art sound proofing and equipment, we perform extremely accurate Hearing Assessments and are registered ACC providers, to carry out work for ACC tests and applications.


It was absolutely crucial to us that HEARO was fully independent. We are not owned or funded by any hearing aid manufacturer, and have no agenda. Being fully independent, we are fully able to prescribe hearing aids of any make and design.


I would say that cost is absolutely vital, and we do our very best to offer very cost-effective solutions. I would highly recommend comparing our prices. Even a very simple hearing aid can be better than no hearing aid.

We look forward to welcoming you to our clinic.

Hearing Aid Centre

Hearing Aid Centre Offers Home Visits and Treats Hearing Loss Symptoms

Our hearing aid centres in the Waikato region can determine if there is indeed a problem – in case you’ve been wondering. Talk to us if you frequently ask people to speak up, slow down, or why they are mumbling.

Why You Should Invest Some Time In a Free Hearing Test in NZ?

Why not put on your headphones and do our ten-minute online test if your neighbours are complaining about your TV or radio being too loud?

  • Many of us experience gradual hearing loss as we get older. The three different types are conducive - in the outer and middle ear - sensorineural - involving the inner ear - and mixed combination, which entails both.

  • Ongoing exposure to loud noises contributes to the problem, and factors such as uncontrolled earwax can temporarily affect how well you hear. We cannot reverse most kinds of hearing loss, but we, or your doctor, can improve what you do perceive.

  • We perform assessments with state-of-the-art soundproofing and equipment. As an independent clinic that does not prescribe particular manufacturers’ hearing aids, we offer the treatment options that suit you and your pocket best.

  • Visit our clinics in Te Awamutu, at the Hearo Anglesea Clinic Pharmacy in Hamilton, Matamata, or Cambridge. If you do not hear consonants well or struggle to understand words in a crowd or against a noisy background. Come in for a free hearing test if you tend to avoid conversations or social settings.

Our services are cost-effective, waiting times are short, and it is easy to book an appointment. We offer a no-risk 30-day trial, provide a five-year warranty plus comprehensive lifelong aftercare.

Related Services We Provide to a Hearing Aid Check

These days, hearing aids are much like small, fast computers. They handle information rapidly and precisely, converting the acoustic signal into digital information the moment they receive it.


  • They alter the signal to match your hearing target and store a template inside the aid, which they change into an acoustic signal.

  • Our devices can block wind noise, deciding which of the two aids is protected from the gust and should receive and relay the sound from the windy side to hear for both ears. The two receivers communicate to build up a sense of direction and locate the sound source.

  • We cooperate with you and give you the time you require to think about it, seek medical advice, and test a few hearing aids you can afford after your hearing test appointment.

Our hearing aids can raise speech above the sound of traffic - or the voice of the person you are looking at - because they evaluate your environment.

Why You Should Use Hearo

Some of our hearing aids can link to mobile phones, while others can connect to TVs or pick up that you have taken a fall and send a text message to a helper.

Contact us and experience a caring, relaxed approach, various options, and excellent value.


“I've been in the farming/shearing industries and loud noise has been standard in my work. As deafness is gradual, you don't seem to notice until you're talking in a conversation & really can't hear - especially if there's other background noise, until one day I was working for Martin & he offered to test my hearing. Being a little reluctant, I wasn't going to be bothered, but decided why not. Martin put me through the tests, picking up what was needed & fitted/set me up with hearing aids which you don't notice you're wearing except for you can hear really good again.. definitely makes you realise how poor my hearing had become.


I would recommend Martin at Hearo for his professional approach/service plus the quality, set up/tuning of the hearing devices. After-sales service is great & on going so it's not like you get sold something & forgotten about. I feel so confident wearing hearing aids as they are discreet.. so thank you Hearo.”

Deafness is an ‘invisible’ disability. As a result, many deaf and hearing impaired people often experience feelings of isolation, loneliness and frustration.

Apart from alerting the person to sounds, hearing dogs offer great companionship, security, greater independence, reduced stress, and social interaction.

HEARO is a very proud sponsor of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People NZ - and their team is even more excited to bring treats for the dogs and the team!
