Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an audiologist and an ENT specialist?
  • An audiologist specializes in the auditory and vestibular system portions of the ear. Audiologists are the go-to specialists when it comes to diagnosing, treating, and monitoring hearing loss whereas an ENT specialist has a broader scope of expertise. ENT stands for ears, nose, and throat. Typically, ENT specialists deal with disease and deeper medical issues, but not hearing loss.


  • If you’re experiencing issues with balance, Tinnitus, or find that people often seem to mumble, then an audiologist should be your first choice for a checkup. An audiologist may refer you to an ENT specialist at some point if your hearing issue signals an underlying condition that could require surgery.


  • Audiologists also counsel families through a new diagnosis of hearing loss in infants, and teach coping skills to late-deafened adults.


  • We’ll find you a free hearing test nearby that will ascertain whether or not an audiologist’s assessment will be sufficient. It is also possible for seniors to schedule an at-home private test (in-person or online) if they are not able to come by one of the clinics.
What kind of hearing test will I do be doing?
  • Depending on the audiologist’s initial assessment, the tests they administer will differ depending on a person’s unique situation.


  • A pure tone audiometry evaluation is the most common hearing test that measures a person’s ability to hear both the intensity and the tone of a sound. It also helps assess a person’s balance. How well a person can hear at different frequencies is then plotted onto a chart called an audiogram.


  • The BAER or Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response test uses electrodes to measure brain activity that occurs in response to clicks or certain tones. Electrodes are placed on the scalp and on both earlobes.


  • OAE or Otoacoustic Emissions specifically focus on the inner ear or cochlea by analyzing vibrations produced by the hair cells in the inner ear. You will not produce these soft sounds if your hearing loss is greater than 25-30 decibels (dB).


  • While ABR or Auditory Brain Response is normally reserved for newborns and infants, it’s performed on adults to rule out the possibility of a disorder along the hearing nerve or in the brain itself.
Why should I get a hearing test done?
  • People mistakenly believe that they should get a hearing test done only once their hearing really starts to deteriorate. However, the purpose of a hearing test is to catch on to the early warning signs of hearing loss that can often be very subtle. These early signs and symptoms often show up without notice!


  • According to the Hearing Loss Association of America, approximately 48 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss, and people with hearing loss wait an average of 7 years before seeking help! We don’t want this to happen to you. Getting a hearing test done now will save you time, money, and your health and happiness in the future.


  • Our 1000+ partner locations offer hearing tests for free!


  • In addition to being conveniently situated near where you live, many hearing tests take place on a walk-in basis and so there’s no need to even book an appointment!


  • If you work in loud environments, such as at a factory, you’re obligated to get a hearing checkup done periodically for health and safety reasons. If hearing testing is not stipulated at the workplace, be sure to further this with your employer since noise-induced hearing loss at the place of employment and other such occupational/industrial hazards could lead to legal action against an organization.


  • Aside from checking for hearing loss, a free hearing test is also recommended to check up on your general ear health. For instance, it could be that there is too much earwax in your ear, which can subsequently cause ear pain and dizziness. Perhaps you’ve been using cotton swabs which push earwax further into the ear. It’s best to have an audiologist clean your ear with professional tools.


  • After the test, the audiologist will recommend solutions such as a hearing aid depending on your hearing needs, lifestyle, and preferences.
