Only with a full picture of your ability to hear, can we make recommendations and why we offer an in-depth hearing test covering every area of how you hear!

In-Depth Hearing Examination

We offer a complementary and in-depth hearing evaluation, assessing the full function of your hearing system. The diagnostic assessment is made up of several hearing tests that give us the information we need to fully evaluate your hearing function.

This allows us to understand exactly what is going on with your hearing.

With a full and clear diagnosis, we can then assess if you are suitable for hearing aids or some other treatment.

STEP 1 Speech-In-Noise Test

LiSN-S PGA is the new benchmark speech-in-noise test for patients with an existing hearing loss. This unique diagnostic tool allows us to accurately measure how well you understand speech in noise.

STEP 2 Core Hearing Test

This group of tests is plotted on a graph called an audiogram which shows your hearing sensitivity at each frequency. It answers the question of whether or not hearing sensitivity is within the normal range, or if there is a hearing loss.

STEP 3 Middle Ear Test

The tympanometry test (or middle ear test) measures how well your middle ear works. Your middle ear includes your eardrum, the middle ear bones, and your Eustachian tube. It will reveal abnormalities which will signify and can explain a conductive hearing loss and/or any sensation of pressure in the ear.

STEP 4 Acoustic Reflex Thresholds

This test measures how the stapedius muscle contracts in response to a loud sound. The absence or presence of acoustic reflexes can be important for differential diagnosis of the underlying problem in hearing loss.

STEP 5 Hearing Summary & Report

The results of your audiometry tests will be recorded on a form called an audiogram, which we will review with you.The audiogram reflects your hearing loss in frequencies and decibels. We will show you the type, pattern, and degree of hearing loss, as well as the percentage of normal conversational speech that you are still able to hear.

STEP 6 Hearing Aid Assessment

If you are a suitable candidate for hearing aids, we will then move onto a hearing aid benefit assessment. During this test we use our fitting suite to fit a set of suitable hearing aids to your defined loss. We then use Real Ear Measurement (REM) to verify that the devices are delivering the amplification that you need.

What I did like about Hear4U is the fact that on the internet, there’s a pricing structure; I don’t like going into a place and not knowing what I’m going to pay (…)

I found Hear4U very professional.
