We are thrilled to unveil our latest project - the OTC Vibe Hearing Aids!

Launching exclusively through Hearing New Zealand, these affordable, high quality OTC hearing aids are designed for individuals with mild to moderate hearing loss. We offer two sleek and stylish options: Behind the Ear and In the Ear.

Why choose OTC Vibe?

We understand the common pain points:

  • High Costs.     Our hearing aids offer exceptional value for money.

  • Stigma.           Designed to be small and cosmetically appealing, they are virtually unnoticeable.

  • Complexity.     Simplified usage without needing support from a licensed audiologist.

What sets us apart?

  • Premium Quality.   Our aids are backed by a leading producer of hearing instruments.

  • Peace of Mind.      Enjoy a 3-year warranty and access to repair facilities.

  • Personalised Fit.  We first check your audiogram results to ensure you qualify, then programme ​​the                                            hearing aids specifically for you.​​

  • Smart Control.      Use our intuitive App to easily control your hearing aids from your smartphone. 

                                      Adjust volume and sound balance with just a tap, anywhere and anytime.


It's that simple!

Introducing 'Over the Counter' Vibe Hearing Aids


Why the white cat?

White cats often have hearing loss in about the same ratio as people. Occasionally they are profoundly deaf - just like people.  They don't know that they do not hear everything and unless you actually test them, you don't know that they have a hearing loss either - just like people.  They have developed wonderful coping skills.  They also know they are purrfect (sorry we could not resist) just the way they are - just like people. 

Hearing loss is a hidden handicap.  We want to make it visible.  March 3rd is World Hearing Awareness Day.   Wear a white pin in support and help us spread the word.

Hearing health in Antenatal classes

 My ears are sensitive and I am going to need them my whole life.  50% of all hearing losses are preventable if you start by keeping me safe. Hearing loss is not due to age but rather years of damage.  Protecting my ears now will enable me to hear my grandchildren.  

My parents attended the Hearing Health Classes at the Parent Centre to learn that illness, medication, allergies, as well as noise can damage my hearing.

The class is under production to be offered online and we expect it to be available at the end of October.  If you would like to sponsor a class for a parent, please click the donate button.

Our Mission

Education in schools


Hearing NZ member associations provide an evidence based educational program to teach children about sound and how we need to protect our hearing.  

This hands on program features experiments that demonstrate each principal.  If you would like to find out more contact us below or if you would like to sponsor a class please donate below. Please let us know which region you would like to support.

Founded in 1932, Hearing New Zealand has been working hard with the help of our members and volunteers to improve the lives of our people with hearing impairment through supporting the individual, advocacy, education and research.
