The hearing test involves testing each ear for its various tone capablities. Hearing Aid Labs can thus ascertain how good your hearing actually is.
Some clients may find that they are a little tone deaf rather than completely deaf. The test is comprehensive and will tell us if you have major or just minor problems.
This is the purpose of the screen test to see if there is a problem first of all. During the screen test, Hearing Aid Labs will use a video-otoscope which will clearly show you on the computer screen if the problem is just wax or something small.
If there is an actual hearing loss in certain areas Hearing Aid Labs will then make a chart of the hearing loss. This chart is called an audiogram.
The audiogram is used extensively as a blueprint to find a solution to rehabilitating your hearing loss using powerful computers.
The audiogram also helps us to recommend which hearing device will be the best to rehabilitate the problem and re-integrate the person into conversational bliss.
Hearit will present three options. Each option may suit different budgets but as always you will only get what you pay for. A minimum recommendation however will be made to you.
