Hearing Technology with a Methodical Plan

Our community understands better than most what can be achieved when you combine technology with human intelligence and persistence. It is much the same with hearing technology.

The latest hearing aid technology is incredibly powerful, offering stellar sound quality and performance. Wireless connections allow phone calls, music and television to stream directly to your hearing aids for exceptional clarity.

But hearing aids do not fit and program themselves! For best outcomes, you also need the human touch and expertise provided by our Doctors of Audiology.

In 2006, the American Academy of Audiology published “Guidelines for the Audiologic Management of Adult Hearing Impairment.” These guidelines were intended to provide a set of standards or “Best Practices” for the assessment and treatment of hearing loss in adults. The goal for performing best practices is to increase the likelihood of patient satisfaction and benefit as often as possible.

After your Functional Hearing Assessment, we will work together to develop your “Connect 365” Treatment Plan, which will include the best hearing aid technology for your hearing loss, listening needs, preferences, and lifestyle. Once we agree on the hearing aids, you will choose your ongoing maintenance plan. You may choose to pay for ongoing care annually, as an All-Inclusive Five-Year plan, or alacart.

At Alabama Hearing Associates, we follow best practices throughout the assessment and treatment process, and our goal is to have satisfied patients every time!

    Basic Hearing Test

    A basic hearing test begins with an air conduction test. You will be seated in a soundproof booth and single-use, foam earphones will be inserted into your ear canals. The Audiologist will ask you to push a button or raise your hand when you barely hear a series of beeps (tones) presented at various frequencies (pitches) to obtain your air conduction thresholds.

    To determine whether your hearing loss is a conductive (mechanical) loss, sensorineural (permanent) loss or combination of the two, we perform a bone conduction test.  

    For this test, a head band is place on the bone behind one of the ears to obtain your bone conduction thresholds. This process provides a different form of sound transmission using vibration, which bypasses the eardrum and the middle ear bones and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. When you hear the beeps/tones, you will push a button or raise your hand.

    If bone conduction thresholds are better than air conduction thresholds (through the foam inserts), you have a conductive hearing loss. This suggests a problem with the mechanical structures (moving parts) of the ears.

    Conductive hearing loss is often a medically treatable condition for which we will provide you with a referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician. However, if bone and air conduction thresholds match, it indicates a sensorineural hearing loss (permanent), and the treatment will likely involve hearing aids.
