During our free hearing tests
, we ask that you wear either headphones or earbuds and a small bone oscillator behind your ears to listen to sounds at different loudness levels and at different pitches.
You will also be asked to repeat lists of words or phrases at different levels of loudness. Part of our standard hearing tests is to assess how well you understand speech at the appropriate levels. This is called speech discrimination or word recognition. The information gained from this test determines the right hearing aid for your needs.
All hearing aid
decisions should be made only with the advice of an experienced hearing professional. If you are currently wearing a hearing aid and would like to upgrade or replace it, please make an appointment with one of our licensed hearing heath care professionals.
