Q: What's involved with getting your hearing tested?
A: When you get your hearing tested you are asked to listen to a variety of sounds at different frequencies and volumes through earphones or a similar earpiece. An audiologist measures what you can or cannot hear, recording this on an audiogram. This audiogram provides a statistical profile of your hearing. If you have a hearing loss that needs correction, the audiologist can give advice on what to do. If you need a hearing aid, the audiologist can prescribe the correct hearing aid based on your hearing profile.
