Hearing tests

How well can you hear? You may have your teeth and eyes checked regularly, but what about your ears? Everyone over 55 yrs should have a hearing test at least once a year, or more regularly if you feel your hearing has deteriorated.

Symptoms of Losing your Hearing

If you think you may have some hearing loss, you may be experiencing some of the following symptoms.

  • You may have difficulty hearing other people clearly, and are misunderstanding what they say, especially in noisy places.
  • Are you starting to avoid going to noisy places because it has become too difficult to try to hear what is going on?
  • You may be feeling depressed about your hearing or feeling isolated because you’re avoiding situations.
  • Are you listening to music or watching television loudly?
  • Perhaps you are having to concentrate hard to hear what other people are saying, which can be tiring or stressful.

Any of the above situations can be a sign that your hearing is deteriorating and we recommend that you get your hearing tested as soon as possible.

FREE Hearing Test

We offer a free hearing test/check to see if there are any signs of hearing loss. This test will be able to identify if your hearing is normal or if you are indeed starting to struggle with your hearing. We allow 30 minutes for this test. Our free hearing test/check will show if there is any hearing loss present.
Should the result show that there is indeed some form of hearing loss, we would recommend a full diagnostic assessment in order to fully understand the cause of your hearing difficulties, the severity of this loss and what your hearing ability is like.

Full Diagnostic Assessment

The full diagnostic assessment will thoroughly assess all the components of your hearing pathway from your outer ear, through your middle ear and your cochlear then into the auditory processing centre of your brain. Again, all the tests are non-obtrusive, pain-free and are performed in a sound-treated room, so there is still no need for you to enter a small, claustrophobic booth. This test takes about 1.5 hours.
We offer a professional service and are pleased to offer you a free full diagnostic assessment when you purchase a hearing instrument from angli-EAR. A fee of £80 will be charged for this service if you choose not to make a purchase, but this charge can be redeemed against a future purchase.

No small spaces

All our hearing tests are non-obtrusive, pain-free and are performed in a sound-treated room, so there is no need for you to enter a small, claustrophobic booth.

Have regular checks

If your hearing is normal, we recommend that you have your hearing checked again in a year or two. Just as with your eyes and teeth, regular checks help to spot any problems early.

What to expect at your visit

Bring someone with you

It is really useful if you could bring someone along with you for this assessment. Having a family member to accompany you can be an invaluable resource, not just for your Audiologist but also for you. It can help calm any butterflies, and they can also get a better understanding of your condition and learn communication strategies to help you.

Discussing treatment therapies

Lots of information

Medical appointments, in general, can be overwhelming with a lot of information to take in. Your Audiologist will discuss the results of your hearing test, any recommendations, and carry out demonstrations for you to see what wearing hearing aids is like.

Evidence based results

During the full assessment we rely on a minimum of four different tests to understand your level of hearing loss and more importantly to appraise your hearing ability.
