What Is a Hearing Exam from Zounds?
What happens during a hearing examination?
During your hearing exam, our licensed Audiologists conduct a full audiometric examination to determine the individual’s hearing sensitivity levels. For example, you may be exposed to a series of noises played at different frequencies so that our Audiologists can determine the range of sounds that are most difficult for you to hear.
Are hearing loss exams from Zounds different from visiting my regular physician?
At Zounds, the Audiologist conducting your hearing exam is highly educated and qualified so that the results can help you choose the most appropriate solution to address your unique hearing challenges. Most general practitioners or family physicians do not conduct full audiometric examinations.
The state of Ohio requires licensing for all professionals who dispense hearing aids, and you are not required to get a prescription or prior authorization from a physician.
How can I prepare for my hearing loss examination?
You are not required to do anything in advance of your hearing examination. We’ll take care of all the work. During the hearing exam, our Audiologist will conduct a familiar voice test, so we recommend bringing along someone you’re comfortable speaking with during your examination.
How will a hearing loss examination help me make a decision on purchasing a hearing aid?
The hearing exam will allow our Audiologist to determine the degree and specificity of your hearing loss. Once the test is complete, our Audiologist will be able to make a personalized recommendation on the solution that is uniquely suited to address your specific hearing loss case. Hearing exams with Zounds Hearing are comprehensive and free, so there’s no risk for you or your loved ones.
