Hearing Aid Consultation & Testing

Affordable Hearing Solutions offers comprehensive hearing tests to help you monitor your hearing health and hearing needs. Comprehensive hearing tests provide valuable information about your hearing abilities and will help us determine the best treatment options for your hearing concerns. Our experienced hearing health professionals will walk you through every step of the way.

The Importance of Regular Hearing Assessments

Hearing loss can occur gradually, and early detection is key to finding appropriate solutions. Regular hearing assessments allow us to establish a baseline for your hearing health, making it easier to detect any changes or signs of hearing loss. By scheduling regular hearing tests every 1 to 2 years, you can proactively monitor your hearing and take necessary steps to maintain or improve your hearing health.

Who Should Get Their Hearing Tested?

Hearing tests are recommended for anyone who suspects they may have a hearing loss or anyone experiencing any signs of hearing difficulties. Additionally, individuals who have a family history of hearing loss, work in noisy environments, or have been exposed to prolonged loud noises should consider regular hearing screenings. It's important to prioritize your hearing health, as untreated hearing loss can have a significant impact on overall well-being and quality of life.

What to Expect During a Hearing Test

During your hearing test appointment at Affordable Hearing Solutions, our knowledgeable hearing health professionals will guide you through a comprehensive evaluation. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Hearing Health History: At the beginning of your appointment, your hearing health professional will discuss your medical history and ask about any current symptoms or concerns regarding your hearing. We will also inquire about your lifestyle and specific listening situations that may be affecting your hearing so we can offer the best solutions for your needs.
  • Physical Examination: We may conduct a short physical examination of your ears using an otoscope. We’ll visually inspect the outer ear and ear canal for any signs of wax blockage, infections, or other visible issues that may affect your hearing. This is completely non-invasive and painless.
  • Hearing tests: You’ll take a range of hearing tests to determine listening thresholds or the softest sounds you can hear at each pitch. We’ll also test your speech comprehension and hearing in background noise.
  • Results and Recommendations: After completing the hearing tests, we will review the results with you. Together we’ll discuss the findings and how this is relevant to your hearing health. Based on these results, we offer personalized recommendations for your unique hearing needs, which may include hearing aid options, assistive listening devices, or further evaluations.

Types of Hearing Tests

At Affordable Hearing Solutions, we offer a range of hearing tests to thoroughly evaluate your hearing health. These may include:

  • Pure-tone audiometry: This essential part of the hearing test involves wearing headphones and listening to a series of tones at different frequencies and volumes. You will be asked to raise your hand or press a button when you hear each tone. This test determines your hearing thresholds.
  • Speech Audiometry: This test assesses your ability to understand and repeat words spoken at different volumes and noise levels. You will be asked to repeat words or sentences while we adjust the volume and background noise to evaluate your speech discrimination abilities.

Our hearing health professionals will explain each test, answer any questions you may have, and guide you through the process so you’ll have a comfortable experience and get accurate results.
