What Happens During a Hearing Test?

If you are dealing with hearing loss, one of the first steps in determining the best course of action is to have a hearing test administered by an audiologist. These hearing specialists will determine what type of hearing loss you are experiencing and which hearing devices would best help your situation. As you prepare for your hearing test, here is what you can expect. The test will begin with outlining an in depth medical history along with the history of your hearing loss. Expect the hearing aid provider to ask questions about noise exposure, ear surgeries, ear diseases, heredity and any medications you are taking. The first test that the specialist will perform is the pure tone hearing test. For this test, you will sit in a soundproof room or booth wearing a set of headphones. The test administrator will send various frequencies and sounds to each of your ears, and you will indicate when you can hear them. The next step is speech testing. For this, you will listen to a series of one and two syllable words at varying levels and be asked to repeat them. This will determine the level at which you can not only detect, but also understand speech.
