Pure Tone Audiometry

Pure tone audiometry uses both air and bone conduction audiometry. This test identifies hearing thresholds by listening to frequency-specific beeps and whistles (called pure tones) and signalling when you can hear them.

The hearing check is also marked on an audiogram, pure tone audiometry involves listening to a range of beeps and whistles, called pure tones, and signalling when you can hear them.


Air Conduction

To sound travels via the external ear into the air filled middle ear and finally is transmitted to the inner ear.

Bone Conduction

It tests the sensitivity of the cochlea by placing a small vibrator on the mastoid bone behind the ear. Bypassing the middle ear sounds travel through the bones of the skull to the cochlea and hearing nerves.

Both air and bone conduction tests will indicate if hearing loss stems from the inner, middle, or outer ear in technical terms ​sensorineural​ or ​conductive​ hearing loss.


Tympanometry is not a hearing test but is an examination used to test the condition of the middle ear and eardrum mobility through the creation of air pressure variation in the ear canal. Tympanometry can indicate the location of a blockage responsible for hearing loss and if medical treatment is required.

Speech Discrimination Test

A speech discrimination test assesses how well you understand words. When hearing is damaged, often more than sound volume or quality is affected. In many cases, the sound quality can be distorted.

This hearing test measures the level of distortion. Poor speech distortion means voices are distorted and not loud enough.

Audiological Evaluation & Outcomes

  • Determine the degree of Hearing Loss
  • Determine the Type of Hearing loss
  • Identify the possible causes of Hearing loss
  • Recommended Hearing Aid (if required)
  • Implement Preventive Measures and suggest suitable treatment
  • Follow up with appropriate referral pathway

Video Otoscopy

Video otoscopy is typically used to assess the ear’s overall health and diagnose ear conditions such as ear infections, ear wax buildup, and other abnormalities. It is a non-invasive, painless procedure that can be performed quickly and easily in a doctor’s office or clinic. Video otoscopy provides a clear visual image of the ear, allowing the healthcare provider to capture high-quality digital photos and video for review and documentation purposes. Your hearing professional can then track changes in the ear over time, helping identify and diagnose possible conditions.
