Adult Hearing Assessment - Designed to Indentify Unique Hearing Needs

At New Jersey Hearing & Tinnitus Center, we provide audiological evaluations and hearing tests for infants - adults. A hearing assessment at our clinic is much more than just testing. We want to know about your history of noise exposure, medical history, other health factors, and family history.

We’ll also want to know what type of social environments are you most often in, how you are doing in different hearing situations, and how you are dealing with hearing issues in your life. As the appointment approaches, it’s a good idea to starting thinking about these questions.

We recommend you bring a spouse or family member to the consultation as they can give important feedback on when you’re having difficulties. This information is helpful in developing the best solution for your unique hearing needs.

The Evaluation

Our Doctors of Audiology will conduct a thorough assessment of your hearing. To determine if hearing loss exists, it’s possible cause, the degree and the type loss in one or both ears and the best treatment options.

Our diagnostic testing includes:

  • Otoscopy
  • Pure Tone Testing
  • Bone Conduction Testing Speech Recognition Testing
  • Speech in Noise Testing
  • Tympanometry, Acoustic Reflexes – to access middle ear status
  • Otoacoustic Emissions Testing – to access cochlear outer hair cell function
  • All of the above results are recorded on an “Audiogram”

    An audiogram, which is the graphical representation of testing results, is the product of the assessment. It shows the specific frequencies and intensity levels of the patient’s hearing in each ear.

    In the pictured graph, the audiogram shows the frequencies across the bottom from low to high. Levels of intensity are shown from top to bottom with the quietest sounds at the top of the scale and the loudest sounds at the bottom.

    We will explain your results in a detailed, easy to understand manner in which we can come up with a treatment plan (if needed) TOGETHER. Electronic devices are not always the answer! An individualized plan of action is key to how we treat our patients.
