What to expect at a hearing test?

Better hearing starts with a free test

Understanding the hearing test procedure

A key step in improving your hearing experience is making the decision to have your hearing tested. Begin your journey to better hearing by taking advantage of our complimentary hearing test at Amplifon. This crucial first step is not only easy but also free, so you can put any financial concerns aside. By choosing to have your hearing tested, you're making a proactive decision that can significantly improve your hearing and enhance your overall quality of life.

How to prepare for your hearing test?

To make the most of your upcoming appointment, keep these simple tips in mind. Firstly, take a week or two to note down instances where you've encountered hearing difficulties; this information will aid in your discussion with your healthcare provider. Secondly, allocate roughly an hour and a half for your appointment, allowing for flexibility and preventing any potential stress caused by time constraints. Lastly, consider inviting a family member or close friend to accompany you; their presence can offer support, help you recall crucial information, and prompt additional questions you may want to ask your provider. These steps ensure that your appointment runs smoothly and effectively, addressing your hearing concerns comprehensively.

What are the steps in a hearing test?

A hearing test is a painless process that offers valuable insights into your hearing health. During your free hearing evaluation, here's what you can expect:

1. Discuss your medical and hearing history

We'll ask about your hearing and medical past, including changes in your hearing, concerns or any past experiences with hearing aids.

2. Inspection of the ear canals and eardrums

We'll use a video otoscope to examine your ears for issues like wax buildup, ear drum damage, or other hearing-related concerns.

3. Evaluation of hearing thresholds

We'll measure your hearing threshold which determines your degree of hearing loss.

4. Speech understanding assessment

We'll assess how well you hear and understand speech in quiet and noisy environments.

5. Results discussion

We'll share the results and provide personalised recommendations. Feel free to ask questions.
