Is a hearing test the same as a hearing test?

An audiometry is a much more complete process and the results are definitive. However, in a hearing test we obtain an approximate assessment although, yes, they help us to begin to address the needs of each person. 

So, what is the difference between an audiometry and a hearing test? 

Firstly, an otoscopy is performed to check for earwax blockages, internal inflammations, suppurations or perforations. 

Secondly, a tympanometry. By creating pressure variations in the ear canal, we can observe the mobility of the eardrum and the 3 ossicles that transport sound to the cochlea.

We then perform an air conduction tonal audiometry. The objective is to measure hearing accurately using an audiometer that emits sounds at different frequencies and intensities. In this phase, we will check the sound levels you perceive. On the other hand, we will also check the intensity of sound that is uncomfortable for you. 

All these tests are carried out in a totally soundproof booth where there is no input or interference from external sounds or noises.

We also perform a second tonal audiometry but in this case, by bone conduction. The objective is to discover the hearing capacity of your inner ear. 

Finally, we finish with a verbal audiometry or speech audiometry to analyze the ability to distinguish between sounds in the same word. This way we know what difficulties you have in understanding spoken language.

You only have to undergo this audiometry if the results of our online hearing test suggest that it is necessary. 

What are the types and degrees of hearing loss?

Depending on the causes of hearing loss, there are several types:

  • Due to age: it is a loss associated with old age and gradual. It is usually the same in both ears and it is common that the sufferer is not aware of when it begins to appear but only when it starts to worsen. 
  • By noise: those that are more intense can damage the delicate structures of the inner ear. It can occur all at once due to an intense and very loud sound, such as that of an explosion, this being the most extreme case. 
  • Hereditary factors: currently, numerous studies are being carried out to learn how genes work in order to prevent the development of diseases such as this one. Specialists always recommend ear check-ups at an early age to detect any problems. 
  • Due to childbirth: Complications can also arise at this time and lead to problems later on. We are referring to the lack of oxygen during childbirth or the inappropriate use of certain medications.
  • Retrocochlear hearing loss: the cochlea is a part of the inner ear that has a coiled tubular shape. When the hearing loss is due to a disorder of the cochlea, it is called cochlear hearing loss. When it affects the auditory nerve, it is called retrocochlear. 
  • Blockage of the auditory canal: This occurs when something blocks the passage of sound in the ear canal or middle ear.  Most often it is cerumen. In general, the remedy is simple: good hygiene and cleaning. In more serious cases, the intervention of the otolaryngologist may be necessary to remove the element blocking the canal. 
  • Otitis: the inflammatory disease of the ear. There are several types depending on its origin or causes, symptoms and severity.
  • Cholesteatoma: this is a cyst that originates inside the middle ear and can cause hearing loss, vertigo and even rupture of the ossicles in this part of the ear. 
  • Otosclerosis: due to an abnormal growth of the ear bone, affecting the three ossicles located in the middle ear, particularly the stapes. It can be recovered by surgery.

If we refer to the degree, expressed in Decibels (dB), there are usually four types using the standard average between the most relevant frequencies for speech:

  • Mild: 21dB - 40dB
  • Moderate: 41dB - 70dB
  • Severe: 71dB - 90dB
  • Profound: 91dB - 120dB
