Do you need a hearing test from Adelaide Audiologists?
Hearing loss can be gradual, so the symptoms can be subtle and difficult to notice. This can make it tricky to work out if you need a hearing test. To make it easier, we have written a list of signs that indicate it is time to get a hearing test:
You are over 60 years old (one in two people over the age of 60 have a hearing loss!)
You work, or have previously worked, in a noisy environment (military, construction, entertainment, etc.).
You need to as people to repeat what they are saying.
You turn up the volume of your TV/music/radio louder than other people.
Your friends and family are concerned about your hearing (often the people around you notice your hearing loss first).
You have previously been diagnosed with hearing loss (your hearing loss can change over time and needs to be monitored).
You have hearing aids (hearing aids require annual adjustments).
If you are experiencing any of the signs listed above, we would strongly recommend booking in a hearing test in Adelaide.
Hearing SA remains your go-to provider of outstanding hearing tests in Adelaide. We offer a wide range of services including Otoscopy, Tympanometry, Air Conduction Testing, Speech Testing in Noise, and so forth. All our hearing tests are performed using advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment.
Our Otoscopy is also referred to as "outer ear testing." During the procedure, our professionals will use a medical instrument called an otoscope to view the insides of your ear canal. We check the ear canal's condition, check the eardrum's overall health, and if there are wax blockages on the ear canals.
Also known as "Middle Ear Testing," we test the middle ears to check if they are in good condition. We blow little air into the ear canal and see if the ear bones and eardrums are moving as they should. We can also use middle ear testing to test the middle ear for Eustachian Tube problems and ear infections.
Air Conduction Testing/ Pure Tone Audiometry
In this test, we conduct an entire ear testing. This test aims to detect the lowest sounds you can hear and the frequency. We play a collection of sounds with different pitches and tell you what to do when you hear any of the sounds. We can also check for the part of your ear responsible for the hearing loss by using a Bone Conductor. After that, we place the results on an audiogram that displays the level of hearing loss for the different sounds.
Speech Testing in Noise
Many people may experience hearing loss when they are in noisy places. If you have trouble hearing words in noisy places, we can test your hearing. We test how well you're able to pick out words and sentences when you're in a noisy place like a party. Then we can determine the extent to which your brain and ears can process messages.
Speech Testing in Quiet
If you have a partial hearing loss, we can check the degree and variation of your hearing. We test your hearing by checking the sounds/syllables you hear and the ones you miss by using speeches. This test is also very effective in telling us how well your brain and ear can process words, and it lets us know if a hearing aid would be helpful to you.
After conducting the tests, we use the result to determine the overall state of your hearing alongside the brief history of your lifestyle that you gave us to determine the best solution for you.
At Hearing SA, our team is made up of University trained Audiologists who specialise in hearing aids. This means we can give you holistic service, as our Audiologists can both conduct specialised tests to assess and diagnose hearing aid disorders, along with programming and fitting hearing aids. Importantly, our Audiologists are passionate about hearing aid technology, and are constantly trialling the latest devices themselves so they can understand the perspective of hearing aid wearers and give you the best advice.

She is passionate about helping people to hear their friends and families, especially in challenging environments. Her first degree was in IT, so she is passionate about using the latest technology to help people hear their friends and families, especially in challenging environments.

Having hearing aids has improved my life immensely, I don’t feel isolated anymore and can pick up conversations. It’s lovely to hear my nieces when they visit.
