Hearing Tests

​ To get an accurate hearing profile you need several measurements. Just as having a tailored suit made, requires multiple accurate measurements so to an exact hearing profile requires a battery of tests.

tailoring to unique needs
At Farnham Hearing​

We believe a comprehensive hearing assessment is essential to ensure a clear, detailed profile of your hearing. This is the only way we can ensure we give you the best recommendations for improving your hearing (which may sometimes exclude hearing aids) but also crucial to ensure an exact fitting to your ear and your hearing. ​ ​ ​ 


A puretone audiogram provides a solid, foundation for diagnosing hearing loss. It tells us the softest beeps (pure tones) you can hear at different pitches. It helps to diagnose where the hearing loss originates from i.e. middle or inner ear. It is a good and essential starting point in understanding you hearing needs.


At Farnham Hearing we believe the ability to understand speech, is a far better indicator of your  functional hearing than a puretone audiogram. 


 Hearing by nature is intricate and highly complex. Our perception of loudness differs from person to person (and from frequency to frequency) and establishing your own finer sound preferences helps to create a clear Audiology profile.


Determining your ability to understand speech in the presence of background noise is, is critical to fully understand t your functional hearing (day to day experience).

This full hearing assessment takes an hour to complete and then the explanation of the results and recommendations usually takes another half an hour. Fortunately by the end of it, you will have a clear, complete understanding of your hearing, what and why we have made the recommendations we have and what exactly your journey toward better hearing will entail (your Plan for Better Hearing).



We believe a box standard audiogram like the ones you get on the High Street, is inadequate and NOT best practice when aiming to improve hearing! When recommending and selecting hearing aids, only performing an audiogram could be compared to measuring a person’s hight and weight and then proceeding to sew a so called tailored suit!
