Get your Hearing Test Done

Ear problems represent a significant proportion of ill health both in pediatric and adult patients. The majority of ear problems can be diagnosed by a clinical testing of the ear alone. This can be achieved simply with an otoscope and tuning fork without the need for further ear tests or delay.

The hearing (audiometric) test is part of the ear examination that checks a person's ability to hear.

How to test for hearing loss? Quick tests for hearing called speech-in-noise checks are the first step to find out the healthy hearing without visiting a private hearing center.

Hearing tests online: There are free hearing test provided by many websites. They check similar to hearing screening on telephone, except that the sounds come through the computer instead of telephone.

Face to face ear tests for hearing: There are two types of face-to-face tests: short hearing test and full hearing test.

Short hearing tests: These short hearing tests take about 15 minutes, and can tell if you have a hearing problem. They are screening ear tests designed to alert the chances of hearing loss.

Full hearing tests: The full hearing test appointment lasts up to an hour, and can be carried out in a hospital clinic. A full hearing test will confirm that you have a hearing problem and establish the type of hearing problem that you have.

Where can I get a hearing test? Hearing testing can be done in an audiometry laboratory by a hearing specialist (audiologist) or in a doctor's office, a school, or the workplace by a nurse, health professional, psychologist, speech therapist, or audiometric technician.

Pure Tone Audiometry Hearing Test and Speech Audiometry

An audiometer is used to test hearing sensitivity at different frequencies. Audiometry testing includes pure tone audiometry, speech audiometry, Bekesy audiometry, acoustic impedance audiometry/ Tympanometry and evoked response audiometry. The audiometric tests can be carried out using automatic or manual audiometers. Speech audiometry has become a fundamental tool in hearing-loss assessment. It can assist in determining the degree and type of hearing loss in conjunction with pure-tone audiometry. Speech audiometry also provides data involving discomfort or tolerance to speech stimuli and information on word recognition abilities.

Speech testing: A whispered speech test, in which the health professional will ask you to cover the opening of one ear with your finger and then whisper a series of words. Each ear is tested separately for clear recognition of soft whisper.

Pure tone audiometry: Pure tone audiometry is the basic test to find out if a hearing loss is present or not. Pure tone audiometry uses an audiometer to play a series of tones through headphones. The tones vary in pitch (frequency, measured in hertz) and loudness (intensity, measured in decibels). The health professional will control the volume of a tone and check at what frequency the person can hear the tones. Each ear is tested separately. The headphones will then be removed, and a special vibrating device will be placed on the bone behind your ear. Again, you will signal each time you hear a tone. These tests assess how well moves through your ear sound. A pure tone audiogram shows the pitches (frequencies) across the top and the loudness (intensity) down the side. Pure tone audiometry is used as a primary hearing test for children old enough to cooperate with the test procedure and in adults.

Newborn hearing test are quick and painless tests often carried out while the baby is sleeping. The best treatment can be offered if the hearing loss in babies is identified at a very early stage. Otoacoustic Emissions Test and Automated auditory brainstem response are used in newborns. Abnormal hearing test results may not be because of a definite hearing problem. A hearing specialist can help to evaluate the exact reason.
