Diagnostic hearing test

What can you expect in a hearing test? 


A  hearing test allows you to find out how well you are hearing, as well as assessing the health of your ears. 


During a hearing test your audiologist will:  


Check the overall health of your ears  

Perform a hearing test  

Advise on aftercare and next steps depending on the outcome of the check  


Checking the overall health of your ears 


After asking a few introductory questions about your history and current symptoms, the audiologist will use a small otoscope to examine the health of your ear canals and ear drums.  


Performing the hearing test 


The audiologist will test your ears by playing sounds at different pitches through a pair of headphones and asking you to press a button every time you hear a sound. They will then use a special headband (bone conductor) that will  skip the middle ear and test how well you hear sounds through vibrations. 

During both tests they will be measuring the quietest sounds you can hear.  


Advice from the audiologist 


They will then discuss the results of the test with you, and explain any next steps based on their findings. Everything that takes place during the appointment will be recorded to help us track any changes that take place over time.
