A hearing test doesn’t necessarily mean that you are losing your hearing. In most cases, hearing tests are just considered as a baseline test, much like how you get your bloodwork done for monitoring.
Of course, people who suspect that there’s something wrong with their hearing will greatly benefit from a hearing test. Through proper diagnosis and assessment, appropriate intervention can be given even before hearing loss impacts a patient’s quality of life.
What to Expect During a Hearing Test ?
The whole process of a hearing test usually takes around 20 to 30 minutes. Bonus – it’s absolutely painless!
In most cases, a patient will be asked to wear earphones and listen to short tones played at different volumes and pitches one ear at a time.
There are some hearing tests that require patients to listen to speech at different volumes and they will be asked to repeat what words were said. Hearing tests are usually performed in a soundproof room or booth.

Importance of Hearing Aids
Do I really need two hearing aids?
If you are diagnosed with hearing loss in both ears, expect a recommendation to get two hearing aids. With the use of two hearing aids, you can enjoy binaural hearing by being better able to understand and pick up speech even in the most challenging listening situations. Better sound localization is also possible with two hearing aids.
