Hearing Testing for Adults & Children

At Hearing Institute of Ontario, we provide a comprehensive hearing test so that you have a complete understanding of your hearing health.

What Does a Hearing Test Involve?

A hearing test is an entirely safe and pain free procedure performed in a sound proof booth that will take approximately 30 minutes for an adult and 45 minutes for a child.

A Hearing Institute of Ontario will perform a comprehensive hearing test that actually includes five different procedures:

  • Physical examination of the out ear and ear canal
  • Pure tone audiogram
  • Speech discrimination test
  • Tympanometric assessment
  • Bone Conduction Test
Audiogram Sample
Audiogram sample

During Pure Tone testing, our audiologist will play a set of tones at different frequencies and intensities to measure the faintest sound a person can detect. The response is recorded in a line graph form and the resulting chart is known as an audiogram to determine the shape and level of hearing loss.

The Speech Discrimination test determines how well a person can discern words at different volume levels. Our audiologist will present words at different decibel levels and ask the person being tested to repeat the words.

The Tympanometric Assessment measures the middle ear volume and the mobility of the eardrum. This test can identify problems like a punctured eardrum or fluid build-up behind the eardrum.

Bone Conduction testing uses pure tones delivered to the inner ear using a headband device that bypasses the outer ear. This test will determine the type of hearing loss that you have which will determine the appropriate treatment.

Who can have their hearing tested?

Hearing Institute of Ontario provides hearing tests for both adults and children. Adults (19 years and above) are offered one hearing test at no charge on their first visit. Should you require a copy of the audiogram the fee is $75. Tests for employment purposes requiring the completion of any forms in addition to the audiogram are billed at $147. For clients 18 years and younger, we offer hearing tests at a price of $95 and a copy of the audiogram is included. Click Here or Call 1-888-664-2999 to schedule your Hearing Test.
