Expert Hearing Testing at Clear-tone
Our team of experienced audiologists utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to ensure accurate hearing assessments and diagnoses.
Why Get Your Hearing Tested?
Hearing loss is a common problem that can affect people of all ages. Early detection and treatment of hearing loss can help prevent further damage and improve overall quality of life. Regular hearing testing can also detect changes in hearing ability over time, allowing for timely adjustments to hearing aids and other interventions.
What to Expect During Your Hearing Test
When you come in for a hearing test, one of our audiologists will conduct a thorough evaluation of your hearing abilities. This typically includes a series of tests designed to measure your hearing sensitivity, speech recognition ability, and other factors that may be impacting your hearing.
The tests are conducted in a soundproof booth or room to ensure accurate results, and may include:
Pure-tone audiometry: This test measures your ability to hear different tones at various frequencies and volumes.
Speech audiometry: This test assesses your ability to understand and repeat words spoken at different volumes and in various backgrounds.
Tympanometry: This test measures the movement of your eardrum in response to changes in air pressure, and can help detect issues with your middle ear.
After your hearing test, your audiologist will review the results with you and discuss any recommendations for treatment or follow-up care.
When to Get Your Hearing Tested
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be time to schedule a hearing test:
- Difficulty hearing conversations, especially in noisy environments
- Frequently asking others to repeat themselves
- Turning up the volume on the TV or radio to a level that others find too loud
- Feeling like others are mumbling or not speaking clearly
- Ringing or buzzing in your ears
- Difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds, like children's voices or birdsong
At Clear-tone, we recommend that adults receive a hearing test at least once every 10 years up until the age of 50, and then every three years thereafter. Children should receive hearing testing at regular intervals during their developmental years.
