* Free Hearing Test
Better hearing starts with one simple step: a hearing test.
It’s easy to find out if a Audio Service hearing aid could help you. During your free hearing test*, we’ll work together to determine your individual needs. You’ve got nothing to lose and so many wonderful sounds to gain.
Hearing test steps
A hearing test is a completely painless process, but can provide you with a lot of valuable information about the status of your hearing health. Here’s what you can expect when you come in for your free hearing evaluation:
1. Complete hearing health history
The first step to expect at your hearing test involves your hearing health history. Your hearing care professional will discuss with you your history, including changes you’ve noticed in your hearing, concerns you may have or any past experiences with hearing aids.
2. Ear canal inspection
Your hearing care professional will look inside your ear canal using a video otoscope. This is to check for common problems such as excessive wax buildup, damage to the eardrum or other conditions which may make it difficult to hear clearly.
3. Hearing threshold test
This hearing test determines your degree of hearing loss, or what we call your hearing threshold.
4. Speech discrimination test
Your hearing care professional will test your ability to hear and understand speech in both quiet and noisy environments.
About your hearing test results
Your hearing care professional will then walk you through the results of each section of the hearing test, explaining what it means and how it can be addressed. If your hearing test indicates a hearing loss that could be helped by a Miracle-Ear hearing aid, we’ll let you try out some hearing aids right then, so you can hear firsthand the difference a hearing aid can make for you.
We’ll carefully explain and show you the specific models of Audio Service hearing aids that might fit your lifestyle and level of hearing loss. Then, if you still wish to proceed, we can even begin the fitting process for your new hearing aids so you can begin hearing better every day.
