Real Ear Measurement

Real ear measurements (or probe microphone measurements) is the gold standard used to determine whether a hearing aid user is receiving the precise level of amplification needed at every frequency. This enables them to achieve the best hearing improvement possible. Since hearing loss varies person to person and severity, 100% improvement is not always possible. But with real ear measurement, it can maximize their benefit.
The process will simultaneously measure the output in the ear canal to determine how much amplification the hearing aid is providing. The information gathered helps to determine the best solution for you and is more prescriptive-based.
Studies have shown that hearing aid fittings using real-ear measurements resulted in superior outcomes and improved aided benefit both in quiet and in noise – but not all hearing specialists offer real ear measurement. At Alison Burks Clinic of Hearing Inc., we offer real ear measurement to determine the best solution for you.
