Hearing loss is caused by many reasons but the most common is degeneration of parts of the ear due to aging. According to the National Institutes of Health, age-related hearing loss is one of the most common conditions in older adults. However, injury and illness can cause hearing loss at any age.
Out audiologists are trained to assess your level of hearing with thorough, non-invasive tests. The evaluation is usually the first step on a patient’s road to better hearing.

The loss of hearing usually means a decrease in the ability to understand speech. This is one of the top concerns we receive, “I can’t hear my friends when they talk.” Understanding speech is a unique hearing ability. Many people say they know someone is speaking but can’t understand the words. Speech mapping tests use a probe to accurately detect the sound heard by your ears when someone is speaking. The probe detects the exact length, width and resonance factors of your ear. The test is done with a friend or relative whose voice you know well. By speaking at various levels and using key words, the audiologist graphically records the results and will then start to find the best product for your needs.More on Live Speech Mapping
