Do you suspect that you need hearing aids?
Get a hearing test and find out.
What's a audiogram? An audiogram is the test results you receive when you take a hearing test. A very highly calibrated machine that produces sound at the pitches associated with human speech, called an audiometer, is hooked up to a pair of headphones that you wear. The person giving the test will chart the volume level at which you detect each pitch or tone across the frequency range where human speech takes place.
After the hearing test, the person giving the test will usually go over it with you and show you how your hearing compares with what is considered 'normal hearing.' It is a very simple test, much like the way we get our eyes tested - no studying required!
Where can I get a hearing test?
You can get your hearing tested free, or for a very low, at any hearing aid dispenser or audiologist. Check the yellow pages under 'Hearing Aids.' Make sure you ask for a copy of the hearing test results, or your audiogram, when setting up the appointment.
At Advanced Affordable Hearing, we are happy to give you a second opinion on your hearing test for free. We will tell you if you need hearing aids, which type of hearing aids will help you, and the cost of those hearing aids. There is no charge for our consultation.
