Hearing Tests

A hearing assessment comprises a number of tests that measure how well you hear a variety of sounds such as tones and speech.

Hearing tests are conducted in special sound booths or extremely quiet rooms. In general, hearing tests result in one of two outcomes:

  • normal hearing or
  • some degree of hearing loss, ranging from mild to severe/profound.

Studies have shown that if a hearing loss goes undiagnosed, it can worsen quicker than a hearing loss that is identified and treated earlier. Because some hearing losses appear gradually, you may be unaware of its onset, so do not delay having your hearing tested!

If you have difficulty hearing, you are not alone. 1 in 2 people over the age of 50 experience some degree of hearing loss.

If you present with any of these symptoms, a hearing test is recommended.
