Diagnostic Hearing Tests:
- Audiometry (Tone or Speech) hearing test – Using tones of varying frequencies and volumes, this test provides us with an evaluation of your sense of hearing and is carried out in a sound proof booth for the most accurate measurements.
- Tympanometry test – This test is often carried out in conjunction with audiometry and is used to assess the function of the middle ear. We can also provide ipsi & contralateral reflexes and decay on request.
- Video-otoscopy – Enables us to view the condition of the outer ear and provides us with a permanent photographic record for future reference.
- Otoacoustic emissions (DP, TE and SE) hearing tests for babies – Used to test the function of the cochlea and other parts of the ear to investigate possible early noise damage and objective tinnitus assessment. Further hearing tests may be needed to determine if there is hearing loss or not.
- Brainstem evoked response audiometry hearing test – This test uses electrodes that are placed on the scalp and behind the ears to measure neural responses to brief tones, available in outpatient clinics or theatre for objective tests or reviewing the growth of acoustic neuroma.
- Listening in Spatialised Noise – Sentences Test (LiSN-S) Developed by the National Acoustics Laboratory this is a virtual-reality hearing test that measures speech perception used for the evaluation of auditory processing disorders.
Click Hearing’s Virtual Sound Environment
Usually a hearing test or fitting of a hearing aid is carried out in quiet surroundings which do not reflect the active lifestyles of our customers. Our clinics have the latest surround sound technology enabling your hearing aids to be personalised to reflect your lifestyle.
Using surround sound technology the audiologist will fill the room with sound that reflects situations which you encounter regularly such as being in a busy restaurant or travelling in a car. Busy supermarkets, train stations and restaurants are places where we all want to hear well and be able to communicate, but people with hearing loss often have difficulties even when wearing hearing aids.
Now your hearing test and fitting of a hearing aid can more accurately reflect your lifestyle and your audiologist will be able to better assess your hearing and make the fine adjustments to your hearing aid that enable you to hear conversations better when in busy situations.
