This test is similar to Pure Tone Audiometry, but instead of listening to various tones at different volumes, you listen to words which you must repeat. Speech audiometry is conducted to determine how well you can differentiate between different speech sounds, which helps determine how well you hear and understand ordinary conversation.
Speech in noise testing
Speech in noise (SIN) test is a different speech test to distinguish how well you are able to hear speech in noise. The SIN test involves listening to words or sentences through a headphone, in the presence of different levels of background noise, and repeating what was heard. The main purpose for conducting this test is to help determine if you will benefit from wearing hearing devices and to determine the type of technology you will benefit from the most.
