When you visit our Golden hearing center, you will be asked questions about your medical and hearing history. Then our audiologist – Dr. Beki – will use a lighted otoscope to inspect your outer ear and your ear canal for any abnormalities that may affect your hearing test results or require you to visit an ENT doctor. We will also conduct a hearing test in a sound-proof booth to determine specific frequencies that may be more difficult for you to hear.
You will be asked a series of high and low frequency words to determine your ability to understand speech within a short distance. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help determine if you have hearing loss, your ability to understand speech, and if hearing aids will help you.
Tympanometry tests the condition of the middle ear and the mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the conduction bones, with variations of air pressure in the ear canal. Specialized equipment is used to accomplish this test.
There are literally hundreds of places to get hearing aids in Colorado. Why get them from Sound Relief? Thorough hearing testing and the personalization of the devices we recommend will make your experience memorable and provide you with the greatest return on your investment. We only offer the most technologically advanced hearing aids and offer a variety of options designed to meet any budget.
Cerumen, otherwise known as ear wax, is a waxy substance secreted in the ear canal. Its purpose is to protect and clean the skin of the human ear canal. For some the ear produces too much wax which can become impacted and press against the eardrum. Impacted wax can impair the ability to hear. We have specific tools and techniques to safely remove of ear wax.
