Evaluating & Measuring Tinnitus

Evaluating and measuring tinnitus can often prove complex and challenging. However, our specialist knowledge in this field of audiology ensures that we collect all the information required to not only help us fully understand the unique qualities of your tinnitus perception but also select the most appropriate therapy option that will provide you with effective and sustainable relief from your tinnitus.

The assessment includes the following:

  • Completion of evaluative questionnaires
  • Review of otological and tinnitus history
  • Otoscopy – Physical examination of the outer and middle ear structures
  • Tympanometry – A test to check middle ear function
  • Pure-tone-audiometry – – A test to check hearing acuity along the auditory pathway
  • Loudness Level Tests (where appropriate) to check hearing sensitivity
  • Minimum Masking Level Test – To assess tinnitus loudness
  • Pitch Matching Test– To identify the approximate frequency of your tinnitus

Your audiologist will then explain your results in a non-technical, jargon-free way, that will give you a full understanding of your tinnitus. Your audiologist may offer treatments or therapies to treat your tinnitus if appropriate. This does not always mean tinnitus treatments. In fact, there are variety of tools and coping strategies that could also help people to live well with tinnitus.

Exemplary service. A very clear and detailed explanation of the options for new hearing aids. Much time was spent in equipping me with what was most appropriate for me. Nothing is too much trouble – great care and attention paid at every stage.

I recently attended Hear and Now, Ripon for microsuction treatment. What an excellent service on every level. Professional, courteous and thorough.. I have no hesitation in recommending them and I will certainly be using them again in the future.

Took my 99 year old mum for ear wax removal. We had a fantastic experience with all the lovely staff who definitely know their stuff! She left with much better hearing and a massive smile. She got straight back into her talking books once she returned home. Thank you so much.
