Our passion is to help our patients to hear better. Advanced diagnostic examinations allow us to determine the best plan of action to improve your hearing. We specifically conduct real ear measurements to ensure that you are getting optimal results. Although hearing aid software programs the device to your hearing test, every individual ear is different which can affect how sound is transmitted. By performing real ear measures, we can make sure your hearing aid is providing you with the appropriate amount of sound for speech understanding.
Now, think of the ear canal as the room, the speaker as the hearing aid and the other person, or the listener as the ear drum. With a very large ear canal or room, our speaker or hearing aid is going to have to transmit sound at a louder level to reach our listener, or ear drum at an appropriate level. With a very small ear canal or room, our speaker or hearing aid is going to have to transmit sound at a slightly softer level to reach our listener or ear drum at an appropriate and comfortable level.
We measure soft speech, average conversational speech, and loud speech to ensure that any level of sound is reaching your “listener,” or ear drum, at an appropriate level. The maximum output of the hearing aid is also measured to ensure comfort and safe listening in case of extremely loud sounds.
