A hearing test can establish if a hearing loss is present, and if so, the degree and type. An Audiologist is a trained professional who conducts hearing tests for adults and/or children. A typical appointment will include taking a thorough case history, looking in your ears, performing the hearing test (with headphones and a head band that sits behind your ear), listening and repeating words and assessing your eardrum/middle ear movement.
At Eastern Audiology, a comprehensive hour-long assessment for an adult is $168. Our Audiologists in Hobart and Huonville are also experienced in testing children. A hearing test for kids is $85. These include a discussion of results with you, including any further recommended management, as well as a written report to the appropriate parties. We can also perform hearing tests for special activities such as driving, employment and police medicals.
