Hearing loss can affect anyone, and the causes could be unclear at the initial phase.

Hearing loss can affect anyone, and the causes could be unclear at the initial phase. It usually develops slowly, making it hard to notice until symptoms appear. However, there are affordable hearing aids at our Hometown Hearing clinic that can help the situation.

You can find out if you have conductive, sensorineural, or mixed hearing loss by taking a hearing test. This exam will also determine the appropriate medical treatment for you, such as digital hearing aids, bone-anchored hearing devices, or cochlear implants.

Getting Started:

The Hearing Test

During a hearing test, you'll wear headphones or earplugs connected to a device that sends sounds to one ear at a time at varied volumes and pitches. The idea is that every time you hear a sound, you identify it by raising your hand or pressing a button on a nearby response machine.

A hearing test is conducted in a sound-proofed room, as any extraneous noise should not interfere with the hearing test. If there are sound interferences, there may be problems or long-term consequences, including:

  • Your test result may not accurately reflect the issue you're experiencing
  • You may receive the incorrect digital hearing aid
  • You'll experience a slew of adverse effects, which may worsen your condition

How The

Test Works

The Rinne and Weber tests help determine the loudest sound a person can hear. Each test determines the likelihood of various forms of hearing loss.

The Rinne and Weber tests help determine the loudest sound a person can hear. Each test determines the likelihood of various forms of hearing loss.

The frequency of the sound will be measured (Hz). Low bass tones of 50-60 Hz and high-pitched tones of 10,000 Hz or higher are present. To determine whether you have speech intolerance, you will repeat words you hear.

The second test is to check your word recognition rate. Here you will listen to a word sound and repeat a series of one-syllable words at a volume that does not change.

The objective of the word recognition test assessment is to evaluate the person's ability to understand speech from background noise. Before or after the general audiometry exam, tuning forks are also used to conduct the tests.

Average Cost Of Hearing Tests

Typical costs for a hearing test can cost nothing for people with insurance, or can be as much as $250. But these will heavily depend on the clinic and the experience of the practitioner performing the test.

You can get a free test from the company that's marketing their digital hearing aids. The reason for the test is so you patients purchase hearing aids through their company. But most insurance companies cover routine hearing tests.

How To Access Test Results

After the hearing testing, the audiologist will go over the test results with you. Then send a duplicate to your referring physician, who may be a neurosurgeon, otolaryngologist, or primary care physician.

The ear specialist will book an appointment with you to discuss the way forward, and discussions are based on the test results and the need for you to buy a digital hearing aids tool. The ear specialist will make you understand which hearing aid is right for your condition.
