What happens during a FREE hearing test
After you have booked your free hearing test at your local Amplifon clinic and you arrive for your appointment:
If you do, you will be recommended to return for a comprehensive hearing test with an audiologist or audiometrist.
A free hearing test is the initial 20 minute test completed by one of our hearing care professionals, where the outcome of your test will help identify whether or not you have some form of hearing loss.
A hearing assessment, or comprehensive hearing test, is then recommended to complete if your initial free hearing test identifies hearing loss.
If results indicate hearing loss, further analysis is required through a hearing assessment. This is a more in depth analysis from your first hearing test, taking approximately one hour, and includes the following tests:
Our audiologist or audiometrist will look into your ears, examining your ear canal and eardrum. We will look for ear wax blockages or any other obstructions that might affect your hearing test.
We will play a series of sounds through a set of headphones to assess your overall level of hearing.
We will test your ability to hear words to assess your functional hearing. This test mimics real-life situations and works out the potential to improve your hearing with the use of hearing aids.
We will test the middle ear system for any signs of fluid or other ear diseases and symptoms to determine if you require further medical examination.
