Considering an audiologist and professional hearing testing? If so, congratulations! You'll be rewarded with a more comprehensive examination AND you'll make a valuable ally who's invested in your hearing care. If you're still undecided, consider this one simple question, "Is it hearing loss...OR simply earwax?" Know for certain before investing in hearing aids. If you're over the age of 50, there's a good chance age-related hearing loss is a factor even if earwax isn't the issue. The best thing you can do if you believe you're struggling, or if others have commented about your hearing, is to schedule an appointment with a Hearite professional. It is quick, painless and you get your results right away!  And in many cases, the hearing evaluation is free.  Doctors recommend having your hearing tested every year.

Most hearing professionals will follow the same regimen at your first appointment including a health history and performing a series of tests including a pure tone test, word recognition, and a bone conduction evaluation.  The health history helps the hearing professional determine if you have a family history of hearing problems or any life experiences that could affect your hearing such as chronic loud noise from a job or maybe numerous ear infections as a child.  Your specialist will also ask about the medications you are taking.  A number of common medicines are ototoxic meaning they are harmful to your ears.  

The hearing professional will also visually examine your ears using an otoscope.  They will sometimes do a video otoscopic exam so you, yourself, can see your ear canal and eardrum.   The specialist will be looking for any obstructions like ear wax, infections or other medical conditions that could affect your hearing.  If it is determined there is no medical reason for a hearing loss, they will move onto testing for tones at specific frequencies and speech or word recognition through an air conduction test, bone conduction testing, and speech testing.  The responses to the air conduction and bone conduction will be recorded onto an audiogram.  

Audiograms are charts that show the degree and type of hearing loss you have.  Degrees or categories of hearing loss are:  mild, moderate, severe, and profound.  The types of loss include: conductive, sensorineural, and mixed.  The speech portion of the testing helps determine the type of hearing aids that will help your loss.  

Your hearing specialist will make you feel comfortable and explain what is happening throughout the testing process, because like a lot of medical testing, the experience can sometimes be overwhelming and hard to understand.   

Here are a list of questions that may be helpful with getting clear answers so you can understand your hearing test results:


  • What type of hearing loss do I have?

  • Is this medically treatable?

  • What frequencies am I having trouble with?

  • Do I receive a copy of my test results?

  • What are my hearing aid or treatment options?

  • Can I do anything on my own to help with my hearing loss?

If your hearing results show that you can be helped by hearing aids, you do not have to feel obligated or “pressured” to purchase that day.  Hearing specialists will gladly demonstrate different types of hearing aid technology for your loss right there in the office.  Do not hesitate to ask questions so you can fully understand the results of your test and the options you have been recommended.
