REDUCED HEARING ABILITY
Understanding your test results and hearing loss

Reduced Hearing Results

Your results are consistent with someone with Reduced Hearing Ability. Don't worry, you are not alone. More than 48 million American's experience some level of hearing loss.

You may be missing out on some of the middle sounds of everyday life. 

Middle pitch sounds include regular speech, the sounds of rustling leaves, and the "sh", "p", and "k" sounds.  

High pitch sounds affect clearness of speech and enjoyment of music. They include birdsong, soft voices, children’s voices, and “s”, “f”, and “ch” sounds.

This reduction in hearing may result in speech and environment sounds being perceived as soft and unclear.  Speech understanding may be particularly troublesome when the speaker is at a distance,  when the conversation is not face-to-face, or during conversations in a noisy environment. 

During this appointment, your hearing care professional will measure your hearing ability, interpret the results and offer suggestions and recommendations.

Evaluating your hearing abilities starts with precise measurements of how well you hear sounds and speech. Your hearing care professional needs this information to understand your needs and give you the right advice.

Fortunately, these measurements are quick and easy. For best accuracy, the tests are conducted in a sound controlled setting, usually a sound booth or a quiet room. All you have to do is listen and respond.
