About Us

A1 Hearing is a family run business started by sisters Trish O’Sullivan and Clare McNeill, in 1999. Realising that many people they met could not afford the prohibitive cost of hearing aids they set out to provide a cost effective option.

From the beginning, they have remained true to their philosophy of providing affordable Hearing Care and friendly, personalised service as well as the best possible hearing for their clients.
Over the years they have grown. They now have a large clinic in Papatoetoe, one on the North Shore and recently have opened a new clinic in Mt Eden.
