Adult Hearing Test
Comprehensive Hearing Assessment

Adult Hearing Test

Hearing loss is a normal occurrence as we age, but for some, it is brought on by illness, health treatments and/or work and environment related noise exposure.
The first step in identifying if hearing loss has occurred is to undertake a simple hearing assessment at a clinic within soundproof conditions.
Medicare rebate now available for Audiology. See Rebate section.

Adult Hearing Test Appointment

Our hearing assessment appointment is approx 30-60 minutes and includes hearing tests, ear examination, test result discussion and hearing aid advice if prescription is recommended.
Adult Hearing Tests conducted include, but not limited to:-
  • Pure Tone Threshold test - measures the auditory threshold of important frequencies of speech. Normal pure tone thresholds are at 20dB HL of better.
  • Bone Conduction Pure Tone test – measures your BC hearing thresholds and infers information. BC test used with AC test infers the nature of hearing loss – sensorineural or conductive.
  • Tympanometry test - is a quick test that will assess the function of the middle ear and if there is any fluid build up.
  • Tinnitus assessment - if you have experienced mid-long term tinnitus, our audiologist will conduct specialist tinnitus tests and assessment. See more about tinnitus here.
  • Speech test - is an essential part of a hearing aid assessment. Understanding the spoken word requires more auditory processing by the brain than simply detecting a pure tone. This test allows the audiologist to determine what outcomes can be expected from prescribing amplification with hearing aids and therefore determines a method of aural rehabilitation best suited for their client.
  • Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) test – OAE are specialised cochlear function tests to determine the function of the hearing sensory organ, the cochlea.

Work Health Safety (WHS) Hearing Test

From 1 January 2024, NSW SafeWork states you must provide hearing tests for workers if your business requires workers to frequently use hearing protection as a control measure for noise that exceeds the exposure standard. This baseline hearing test is then followed up by monitoring employees hearing every two years (shorter for those exposed to loud noise).
Totalcare Hearing are conducting WHS hearing test and can book groups of employees in blocks to minimise disruption to your work days.
Contact us by completing the form to enquire about pricing and timing. Please state number of employees to be tested.

Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)

APD is where a person can detect sounds at normal levels but cannot process and understand what they hear in the same way other people do. This is because their ears and brain don’t fully coordinate.
View Auditory Processing Disorder for more information and fees.
