A hearing test allows audiologists to determine the type and degree of hearing loss you may be experiencing. Everyone’s hearing loss is unique to them, and hearing tests are designed to be a starting point to determine the best care possible for each case.
During a hearing test, you will listen to sounds at different frequencies with the aid of headphones . This allows the level of hearing impairment to be determined. In addition, we’ll also evaluate your ability to decipher speech at a normal volume. Sounds, both in quiet situations and with background noise, will be tested as well because we need to know how you hear in real world situations. Each ear will be tested individually to identify where the problem may be.
All this information will allow us to better counsel you on the proper course of action for your specific hearing needs.
