Hearing Test

Do you have to concentrate more to hear in different environments? Do you sit quietly, nod your head and smile during a group conversation, even though you don’t know what people are saying? Do you have a ringing or buzzing sound in your ears whenever you’re in a quiet room?

You Are Not Alone

Like aches and pains, hearing loss is often related to growing older and can develop slowly over time. But that doesn’t mean you or your loved ones should settle for a muffled world that isn’t as fun as it used to be.

When someone suffers from untreated hearing loss, they often struggle with social situations and the embarrassment and annoyance of constantly asking people to repeat themselves. Studies also show that untreated hearing loss can be linked to isolation, depression, increased risk of falling, dementia, diabetes, and more.

What To Expect

By booking your free hearing test with a trusted hearing healthcare professional, you are taking the first and most important step on a journey that will reintroduce you to the world of sound and the joys of communication.

Below is a brief guide that outlines what you can expect during your appointment so you can feel confident, comfortable and prepared.

  • 1. Listening Lifestyle Consultation
    During this time, your trusted hearing healthcare provider will discuss your medical history, hearing concerns, and lifestyle, to help ensure the professional recommendations made following the assessment meet your individual needs and preferences.
  • 2. Physical Ear Examination
    Your hearing healthcare provider will perform an examination of your ears to ensure that there are no signs of wax buildup, and look to see if there are any medical concerns that may be directly related to your hearing loss.
  • 3. Hearing Assessment
    Your hearing healthcare provider will conduct a comprehensive, in-depth and professional hearing assessment, which will include a series of different tests, including speech and word comprehension, tones and pitches. We encourage you to also bring someone whose voice you are familiar with, as this will further assist with helping to measure your every day communication.
  • 4. Review Your Results
    Your results are available immediately following your assessment, and will be reviewed with you in detail so you can understand your level of hearing loss.
  • 5. Professional Recommendation
    Your hearing healthcare provider will present you with a professional recommendation while taking into consideration your hearing aid size and colour preferences, desired listening lifestyle, and budget.
  • 6. Experience a Live Demonstration
    Your hearing healthcare provider will now conduct a live hearing aid demonstration so you can experience the benefits of a hearing device, and rediscover the world of sound.
  • 7. Satisfaction Guarantee
    With our 0% financing program, 90 day trial period and satisfaction guarantee, you can now improve the quality of your life with hearing aids, confidently and comfortably. At Hearing Solutions, we also believe that after care support is just as important as our individualized care during your assessment and hearing aid fitting.
