Hearing Tests and Hearing Evaluations for Treasure Valley Residents

If you live in the Treasure Valley area near Caldwell and you suspect that you might need a hearing treatment or suffer from hearing loss, you will first need to have a hearing test and/or a hearing evaluation.

A hearing test is not a pass/fail test but rather, a tool that determines your precise level of hearing – or severity of hearing loss – which we use to create the best treatment options. A hearing evaluation can determine both the intensity/volume of sounds that are heard by the ear, as well as the pitch. A thorough hearing test – like the one we conduct here at Everything Hearing – goes even further and can show what type of hearing loss is present – conductive, sensorineural, or mixed – and can help our audiologist to decide whether medical treatment or hearing treatment.

 When Should I Have a Hearing Test?

Hearing Test Recommended by Age 50

Too often, adults only think about getting a hearing evaluation when they get older – much older. However, medical professionals recommend that adults have their hearing tested at regular intervals before they start to lose their hearing.

Why? We need a baseline. After all, how can we detect even moderate changes in hearing if we fail to establish a baseline before losing hearing?

Preventative Healthcare: Ears and Rears at 50

As with all preventative medicine, early detection is the key. So just like that very first colonoscopy, we are all advised to get in our early 50s, the same can be said for your first hearing test. As we like to say, “Ears and Rears at 50.”

Detecting hearing changes early can help us to prevent ongoing damage. Regular hearing tests and evaluations starting at 50 years old are critical to the early detection and treatment of hearing loss.

Preventative medicine is part of a healthy life. Don’t forget to include a routine hearing test as part of that. Your ears – and your brain – will thank you for it!

Hearing Technology Treatment Recommendations Based Upon Your Hearing Test Results

If hearing technology is a part of your treatment recommendations, your hearing professional may be able to explain what hearing technology can specifically do to help you.

It is usually at this appointment that you will get to see and touch different styles of hearing technology. Your hearing professional will help you choose the best hearing technology style, features, and level of sophistication based on your degree of hearing loss, lifestyle, and financial circumstances.

Decision Time: Which Hearing Technology Is Best?

Once you make a decision, it’s time to ensure the best and most comfortable fit for you!

Your hearing professional may take impressions of your ears if you have selected custom hearing technology or behind-the-ear hearing treatment that requires earmolds.

Hearing technology usually needs to be ordered from a manufacturer and then programmed by your hearing professional to meet your specific hearing needs. There is an adjustment period when wearing your hearing technology, so it’s possible your provider may make additional changes to your settings to ensure you’re getting the best listening experience possible.
