The role of audiometry and audiogram for hearing test
Audiometry is routinely performed by the audiologist or hearing care professional during your hearing assessment. There are two types of audiometry: the tonal that is used to measure your sensitivity to different types of sound to assess your level of hearing loss according to the frequencies
and the voice that evaluates your ability to understand speech.
Hearing test and audiometry
During your complimentary hearing assessment in an Amplifon clinic, the Audiologist/ Hearing care professional measures your sensitivity to different sound frequencies to obtain the curve of your hearing. This auditory examination is called tonal audiometry and the curve obtained at the end of this test is an audiogram. Depending on the result of your hearing test, our Audiologist/ Hearing care professional can assess your level of hearing loss. The audiogram shows your hearing threshold: you have normal hearing if your threshold is between 0 and 25 dB.

The Audiologist/ Hearing care professional also performs voice audiometry, which assesses speech comprehension.

What is an audiogram?

An audiogram is a graph that plots the results of your hearing test. During your hearing test, you will be asked to respond to sounds. Every time you respond the result is recorded and plotted on the graph. An Audiogram is used to help identify what level of hearing you have compared against normal hearing capabilities. It has the ability to show the level at which sound becomes uncomfortably loud for you. This is called the 'uncomfortable loudness level' (ULL).
