Real Ear Verification

When fitting hearing aids, it is not enough to know how much amplification the hearing aid is providing the user; it is also important to know how each particular ear is affecting sound.  Ear canals come in all shapes and sizes – some long, short, narrow, wide, straight and tortuous.  These differences all affect the acoustics within the canal. 

 

Real-ear testing is a verification tool which takes a person’s ear anatomy into account to ensure the person is receiving the appropriate amount of amplification for incoming speech and sound.

This technology takes the guesswork out of programming and is necessary for anyone looking to achieve the best results possible.  I invite all hearing aid users to ask their audiologist if they perform real-ear testing, and if so – request it.  If they do not, or if you desire a second opinion on the settings of your hearing aid(s), find an audiologist who uses this technology.
