Your Hearing Test and Diagnosis

Did you know that you hear in your brain, not your ears? To interpret the sounds and words you hear, your brain needs to receive detailed and accurate information. However, if you suffer from hearing loss, the brain does not get the information it needs, causing you to ask people to repeat themselves, or leading to confusion or exhaustion. At Advanced Hearing Services, Susan will conduct a hearing test to correctly diagnose any hearing issues you may have. During the hearing test, a comprehensive audiological evaluation will be performed to determine the severity of your hearing loss. This hearing test may be made up of pure tone testing (to determine the type and degree (%) of hearing loss), speech audiometry (to assess your ability to understand and comprehend speech), middle ear assessment (to evaluate the middle ear), and video otoscopy (to see the inside your ear canal). After these tests are completed, Susan will determine the best course of action and help you to choose the proper hearing aid device that will be most beneficial for you.

Old Technology

In complex listening environments where sound sources are many, dynamic and unpredictable, traditional hearing aid technology focuses on one sound source at a time. By reducing all other sound signals – speech and noise alike – it leaves the wearer with a narrowed and artificial listening experience.
