Adult Hearing Test

Hearing loss is a normal occurrence as we age, but for some, it is brought on by illness, health treatments or work and environment related noise exposure.

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.

Why should an adult get their hearing tested

How is the adult hearing test performed

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 - this test measures the auditory threshold of important frequencies of speech. Normal pure tone thresholds are at 20dB HL of better.

  • 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 experience tinnitus, our audiologist will conduct a tinnitus assessment.

  • 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.
