What happens during a hearing test?

Our friendly, expert audiologist will take the time to ask questions about your lifestyle and health history, to understand your personal hearing challenges and help determine the possible causes of your hearing loss. Next, we will use our state-of-the-art hearing test, to measure the quality of your hearing across different tones and we will also conduct a word recognition test both in quiet and noisy situation so we can have an in depth understanding of your hearing in real-life situation.

What is an audiogram?

As an audiogram is a graph, it is used to make a comparison between the degree of hearing loss and which frequencies or pitch the hearing loss is at.
The frequency is on the horizontal axis, which is displayed in Hertz (Hz), where 250 Hz is a low pitch sound and 8000 Hz is a high pitch sound. The amount of hearing loss is shown on the vertical axis in decibels (dB), where the higher the number, the greater the degree of hearing loss. Thresholds from 0 to 20 dB are considered to be within normal hearing range for adults. Any results outside of these thresholds typically means that you maybe experiencing hearing difficulties. You may find some environments more challenging than others. The knowledge and expertise of our Audiologists can help and advise you as to what to do next.
The degree of loss is usually one of the following:

  • Mild:  thresholds between 20-39dB
    You may experience difficulties following speech especially in noisy environments.
  • Moderate: 40-69dB
    You may experience difficulties following speech and some quieter sounds.
  • Severe: 70-89dB
    You may experience difficulties in understanding speech even when you’re in quiet environments. Day to day noises such as traffic become very difficult to hear.
  • Profound: 90dB+
    The ability to hear most sounds becomes very challenging unless the sound is very loud (The 100 dB point should not be confused with a 100% hearing loss).

What to expect after a hearing test?

Your audiologist will run through your results and inform you of the degree of your hearing loss, as well as offer recommendations as to what solutions are best suited to your needs. If you do need hearing aids, we’ll even give you a free demonstration and free trial so you can experience better hearing in the environment that matter to you the most.
