Audiometric Screening (adults)
The audiometric screening consists of pure tone air and bone conduction testing. Speech audiometry is also completed. Testing pure tones is done to determine the degree of hearing loss and whether the hearing loss is conductive or sensorineural. Speech audiometry is obtained to determine the individual's ability to understand speech at an elevated, comfortable volume.

Real Ear Measurement
With real-ear testing, a tiny microphone is inserted into your ear canal, then your hearing aid. A computer runs some automatic tests and the results are shown on the screen.
The output shows both a graph of what your prescription should be, and what your hearing aids are really putting out. Now we can see what needs to be "adjusted" in your hearing aids to properly give you the amplification you need at each of the speech frequencies.
