What Happens During a Hearing Test
A hearing test in its most basic form is the response to hearing tones of various intensity. The charted result records an audiogram. It is conducted in a sound booth to ensure the results are not affected by extraneous background noises.
There are many hearing tests that can be performed depending on the needs of the patient’s hearing loss. A screening test is a very basic hearing test that will confirm whether a full diagnostic hearing test is required.
Hearing tests can be free or chargeable. The free hearing test is generally put on the cost of the person buying a hearing aid, so theoretically the free hearing test can cost a lot more if you are looking to purchase a hearing instrument.
