The Audiogram results

As an audiogram is a graph, it is used to make a comparison between the degree of hearing loss and which frequencies or pitch the hearing loss is at.

The frequency is on the horizontal axis, which is displayed in Hertz (Hz), where 250 Hz is a low pitch sound and 8000 Hz is a high pitch sound. The amount of hearing loss is shown on the vertical axis in decibels (dB), where the higher the number, the greater the degree of hearing loss. Thresholds from 0 to 20 dB are considered to be within normal hearing range for adults. Any results outside of these thresholds typically means that you maybe experiencing hearing difficulties. You may find some environments more challenging than others. The knowledge and expertise of our Audiologists/ Hearing care professionals can help and advise you as to what to do next.

The degree of loss is usually one of the following:

  1. Mild:  thresholds between 20-39dB
    You may experience difficulties following speech especially in noisy environments. 
  2. Moderate: 40-69dB
    You may experience difficulties following speech and some quieter sounds.
  3. Severe: 70-89dB
    You may experience difficulties in understanding speech even when you’re in quiet environments. Day to day noises such as traffic become very difficult to hear. 
  4. Profound: 90dB+
    The ability to hear most sounds becomes very challenging unless the sound is very loud (The 100 dB point should not be confused with a 100% hearing loss).

What to do after a hearing exam?

Your Audiologist/ Hearing care professional will instantly run through your results and inform you of the degree of your hearing loss, as well as offer recommendations as to what solutions are best suited to your needs.
