Pure tone audiometry (PTA)

Pure Tone Audiometry (PTA) is one of the key tests used to assess your hearing.

When conducting a PTA, sounds or ‘pure tones’ are presented through headphones to which you respond by pressing a button each time a sound is heard.   These pure tones are presented across a range of frequencies (pitches), which are involved in speech perception. Your hearing thresholds for these frequencies are plotted on an audiogram.

 

Your hearing is quantified and qualified in terms of the degree of hearing difficulty (quantitative information), the type of hearing difficulty (the origin/source of the problem) and the configuration of the hearing difficulty (qualitative attributes).

Hearing health check / Hearing screening 

At the Art of Hearing we can do a shorter version of the PTA to get a brief overview of your hearing difficulty.  A full hearing assessment can then be prescribed based on the outcome of the hearing health check.  

 

Please note: Do not rely on results from online hearing tests to purchase hearing devices. There are many factors that can influence online hearing test results (wax in your ear, quality of your speakers, quality of the sound, noise in the environment, etc.), these results should therefore always be treated with caution. If any online tests reveal a hearing difficulty, please ensure you book an appointment with a fully qualified Audiologist to determine the precise profile of your hearing ability. The Art of hearing will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your hearing and make appropriate and individual recommendations.
