Real Ear Measurement

Real ear measurements, also known as probe microphone measurements, are considered the gold standard for assessing the precise amplification required at each frequency for individuals with hearing loss who use hearing aids. By utilizing real ear measurements, users can achieve optimal improvements in their hearing capabilities.

Since the severity and types of hearing loss vary from person to person, it is not always feasible to achieve a 100% improvement. Nevertheless, real ear measurements can significantly enhance hearing outcomes by maximizing the effectiveness of amplification.

During the measurement process, the output in the ear canal is simultaneously evaluated to determine the level of amplification provided by the hearing aid. This information is crucial in determining the most effective and personalized solution for the individual.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that fittings based on real ear measurements lead to superior outcomes and improved hearing benefits, especially in both quiet and noisy environments. However, it is important to note that not all hearing specialists offer real ear measurement services.

At Alison Burks Clinic of Hearing Inc., we take pride in providing real ear measurement services to our patients. This ensures that we can accurately determine the most suitable and effective solution tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
