Hearing Tests

Hearing tests are conducted in our special sound booth to measure how well you hear a variety of sounds including different tones. This test will help us determine if you have any level of hearing loss.

The earlier hearing loss is detected, the slower it will progress. Hearing loss can appear gradually, making you unaware of it's onset, so be sure to have your hearing tested regularly to avoid substantial hearing loss.

Hearing History

A hearing test generally begins with questions pertaining to your overall health and hearing history. Below are questions you may be asked:

  • Have you noticed difficulty hearing?
  • Did the problem come on suddenly or gradually?
  • Is there hearing loss in your family?
  • Are one or two ears affected?
  • Were you subjected to chronic loud noise during your life?
  • Do your ears ring?
  • Do you have dizziness or vertigo?
  • Did you have ear infections as a child?
  • Do you have ear pain?
  • Is it harder to hear the voices of men, women, or children?
  • Do you notice environments where it's challenging to follow the conversation?

Visual Examination and Air Conduction Testing

You ear canal and ear drum will be inspected to check for signs of infection of the ear canal or middle ear, and for ear wax blockages; any of these problems can contribute to hearing loss, and can be treated by a medical doctor. If none of these conditions are present, we will continue with a pure-tone air-conduction test. This test determines the softest tones you can hear at least 50% of the time they are played for you. During this test, you will sit inside our sound booth wearing earphones. The practitioner plays several tones at different frequencies, these frequencies represent the range of sounds you would commonly hear in the world. Your response is charted on an audiogram, with the resulting graph showing how well your outer and middle ear structures are processing sound.
