What is hearing testing?

Hearing testing is a diagnostic technique that uses different types of hearing assessments to measure and identify hearing loss. At Cross Timbers ENT, we offer simple but effective methods that don't require any downtime or anesthesia. These outpatient exams are highly accurate and provide comprehensive insight into the degree of hearing loss you or your loved one are experiencing. If you've noticed changes in your hearing, it may be time to get an auditory test. Call our office in Mansfield, Midlothian, or Arlington, TX to book an appointment. 

What to expect during a hearing test

Cross Timbers ENT offers the following hearing tests:

  • Audiometry: This type of test evaluates your ability to hear sounds. During this assessment, different sounds are emitted at various volumes and tones (vibrations). We'll record whether you are able to detect the sounds and evaluate how well the auditory nerve is functioning. 
  • Tympanometry: This exam reviews the condition of the middle ear by creating different levels of air pressure inside the ear canal. It allows us to identify inflammation, infection, or whether there is negative pressure or abnormal fluid present beneath the ear drum.
  • Otoacoustic Emissions: The OAE test is used to find out how well your inner ear works. The inner ear has sensory hair cells that vibrate with auditory stimulation. An OAE measures the vibrations that are sent out from these cells to assess the hearing response of the cochlea.
