What to expect at your hearing test?

The best possible treatment is simple and easy. There are three steps to start:

What to expect at your hearing test infographic

  1. A hearing assessment – You sit restfully in a noise-controlled environment wearing a comfortable set of headphones. You will be asked to press a button in response to a series of tones. Your responses will help us know the exact state of your hearing health. The test will last about an hour.
  2. An examination – Once we have quantified your hearing health, one of our hearing care professionals will examine your ears. The examination is painless and will help us determine possible causes if there is hearing loss (e.g. wax build up, infection).
  3. An interview – This is the most important step in the process. Our hearing care professional will ask you about how your hearing health has affected you. It’s a simple conversation that will yield the final pieces needed to make the perfect recommendation to fit your needs.

You and your loved ones also receive advice on how to best communicate in different everyday situations, both with and without a hearing aid.

  • The minicomputer analyses the sound environment from data gathered by the microphones. The computer selects the sounds you need help with.
  • The highest quality and best hearing aids only amplify the parts of sound you need help with. They also remove any excess sound and amplify the personalized result in your ear.
