A Hearing Test Is Easy
Have you ever wondered how a hearing test works? It’s simple and easy, and we want to show you exactly what it looks like!
Your hearing professional will place you in a testing booth for the hearing evaluation. The hearing professional will use either an insert that goes inside your ears or a headset will be placed on you. They then will conduct a series of tests that include pure-tone air and bone conduction, speech test, and maximum thresholds. A complete test is invaluable to properly helping you understand your hearing loss and discover a solution.

Understanding Your Audiogram
An audiogram has five levels that represent normal hearing, along with mild, moderate, severe and profound hearing loss. When you come in for an audiogram, your hearing professional will also test your most comfortable listening level and word recognition.
It’s extremely important to get a hearing test, even if you don’t have hearing loss (or don’t think you do), to get a baseline audiogram. From there, you can stay on top of it, just like going to the doctor for a wellness check every year.
Brain Cognition-What You Need To Know
A lot of people with hearing loss say, “It sounds like people are mumbling.” If you’re able to hear people but not understand the words they’re saying, or if you have to turn the TV louder and louder to understand the words, that could be a word recognition problem.
The longer someone goes without hearing, their ability to understand diminishes. It probably can’t be brought up from where it is, but it is possible to keep it there and prevent it from getting worse.
