Hearing Tests for Adults & Children
For your Echo Audiology team to help you rediscover your hearing and start you on a personalized plan, we must first evaluate the cause and degree of your hearing difficulties. We offer comprehensive hearing tests for adults and children at our Orléans clinic using the latest technology, so we can be as accurate as possible. Combined with a personal interview so we understand your concerns, and a physical exam of your ears, your hearing test gives us the information required to develop a sound plan to improve your hearing health.

What is a Hearing Test?
A hearing test helps us evaluate one’s ear condition and ability to hear through various tests and with the help of various pieces of equipment. We generally discuss your hearing health and then go ahead with performing the hearing test in the Soundbooth. Our Soundbooth at Echo Audiology is quite large, making it comfortable for most people and allowing enough space to accommodate wheelchairs.
A typical hearing test at our clinic includes a visualization of your ear canal, a measurement of your middle ear and an evaluation to determine your hearing sensitivity at various frequencies. We also perform some speech testing where we may ask you to repeat some words or sentences in quiet and in noise.
Once the hearing test is complete, we then take the time to sit down with you and go over the results.
We also often provide a report for your physician or various professionals with who may need to view the Audiogram and a written report of the results.
How we use Hearing Tests and Technology to Improve your Hearing Health
Although we use the latest technology to perform your hearing test, we don’t stop there. The way the new technology is designed, it allows us to use it as a tool, so we can help you understand what is going on with your hearing and how the solutions we recommend are going to help. Since we will have a baseline established from your first hearing test, we can compare your results to make sure things are going well once your plan is implemented. The latest technology will not only improve your hearing health, but will help us deliver on our promise to provide you with patient-centered care that is designed to work for YOU.
