Hearing Tests

Hearing tests, also known as hearing evaluations, are essential in determining your current hearing ability and detecting any signs of hearing loss. These tests are painless, non-invasive, and require no special preparation. By undergoing a hearing test, you can gain valuable insights into the health of your auditory system and receive appropriate recommendations for your specific needs.

What to Expect During a Hearing Test

When you schedule a hearing test at Ebia Hearing & Sound, our experienced hearing care team will guide you through the entire process. Here's what you can expect during your appointment:

  1. Case History and Background: Our audiologist or hearing aid specialist will begin by discussing your medical history, any concerns you may have about your hearing, and any specific symptoms or difficulties you've noticed. This information helps them understand your unique situation and tailor the test accordingly.
  2. Examination of the Ear: We will conduct a visual examination of your ears using an otoscope. This allows them to check for any blockages, wax buildup, or other physical conditions that may impact your hearing.
  3. Pure-Tone Testing: Pure-tone testing involves wearing headphones or insert earphones and listening for tones at different frequencies and volumes. You will be asked to indicate when you hear each tone by raising your hand or pressing a button.
  4. Speech Testing: Speech testing evaluates your ability to understand spoken words or sentences. You will listen to recorded speech stimuli and repeat them back to the audiologist or hearing aid specialist.
  5. Additional Tests: Depending on your specific needs and symptoms, our hearing care provider may also conduct other tests as needed.
  6. Test Results and Recommendations: Once all the tests are complete, our team will review the results with you. They will explain what the results mean, discuss any hearing loss or conditions identified, and recommend appropriate treatment options if necessary.

Treatment Options for Hearing Loss

If your hearing test reveals hearing loss, there are various treatment options available to improve your hearing and enhance your quality of life. These options may include:

  1. Hearing Aids: Hearing aids are small electronic devices that amplify sound and help individuals with hearing loss hear more clearly. Our hearing aid experts will work with you to select the most suitable hearing aids based on your specific needs, preferences, and budget. In our clinic, we offer a number of styles and brands to better serve our patients.
  2. Assistive Listening Devices: Assistive listening devices, such as personal amplifiers or TV listening systems, can complement hearing aids and improve your ability to hear in specific situations, such as crowded environments or while watching television.
  3. Communication Strategies: Our hearing care professionals can provide guidance on communication strategies that can help you navigate challenging listening situations and improve your overall communication skills.
  4. Tinnitus Management: If you experience tinnitus, our hearing care providers can provide effective strategies and treatments to manage and reduce the impact of tinnitus on your daily life.
