The Hearing Test in Edinburgh, East Lothian and Perth and Kinross

We want to know how you feel about your hearing and when you feel that you might be struggling

I am an experienced hearing aid user who recently attended Edinburgh Hearing Aid Practice for assessment. The latter was the most comprehensive I have experienced to date. Audiologist Katie was meticulous in arriving at the best solution for me. She has a positive and sympathetic approach which is so important in this sensitive area.

A Comfortable Environment

We provide a warm, welcoming and comfortable environment at both our hearing aid clinics. We have taken careful steps to ensure that you feel at ease. A hearing test is not something to fear and we hope that our decor and furnishings will give you some comfort that we aren't the usual clinic. With three hearing aid centres in Edinburgh, East Lothian and now Perth and Kinross, we hope to provide our services to more people than ever.

What to expect from a complimentary hearing assessment at The Edinburgh Hearing Practice 

Most hearing centres will measure the quietest sounds that you can hear and based on this will make a recommendation. Although this type of hearing test provides useful information, by no means does it provide a full picture, we hear with our ears but it is our brain that understands speech! With this in mind, we have designed our test protocol to ensure that we measure your exact individual issues. 

Firstly, we recommend that you bring someone with you as they can often provide useful information and support. Our hearing assessments usually take about 90 minutes

First and foremost, we will listen to you – hearing loss is personal and we take the time to listen to your experiences.

We will ask some medical related questions so that we have a good understanding of your general health and history. Next we will examine your ears. We have the latest technology and can show you images of your ears on screen if you are interested in seeing.

We thoroughly check your ears using state of the art video equipment and keep the images on your records so we can keep track of your ear health

If your ears are blocked with wax – your hearing test will not be accurate.  You’re in safe hands at the Edinburgh Hearing Practice as we can perform “Professional ear wax removal.

A Full Hearing Test

Most hearing centers will measure the quietest sounds that you can hear and based on this will make a recommendation. Although this type of hearing test provides useful information, by no means does it provide a full picture, we hear with our ears but it is our brain that understands speech! With this in mind, we have designed our test protocol to ensure that we measure your exact individual issues.

We take you through a thorough hearing evaluation using the very latest audiometric equipment to record the quietest sounds that you can hear, but also importantly, the way that your brain is able to understand the signal from your ears.  This involves testing your speech recognition in both quiet and in the presence of the dreaded background noise.

We perform tympanometry to check how the middle ear is working (this is a really simple comfortable test, and is nothing to be nervous about)

At each stage we will explain the results really thoroughly to you and make sure that everything is completely clear.

Occasionally we may feel that onward referral is required – this is unusual, but you can trust us to always do the right thing

If hearing aids would help, we will discuss all the different solutions that are available to you based on your hearing loss, lifestyle, cosmetic preference and ease of use

All the results and recommendation are given to you in a report 

If appropriate we can make a recommendation on next steps, if you decide to continue on your journey to better hearing. 

A Free Trial of Hearing Aids - our hearing aids are available to trial for 30 days at no cost. We believe that the proof is in the pudding!

Our care plans are bespoke and suited around your needs and preferences.
