After your hearing test assessment and evaluation, your Beltone hearing care professional records the results of your hearing evaluation on an audiogram. He or she will then share the results with you to show you what you’re hearing and what you are missing.

On the right is a sample hearing test audiogram. The letters represent the frequency of common speech sounds in the English language. Clicking on theSpeech Banana check box on the lower right of the audiogram shows where these sounds fall within an audiogram.

The age drop down box on the right hand side of the audiogram allows you to select an age range to see where an average hearing person would fall within the audiogram and which sounds they may be missing.

Each individual‘s hearing is different. Call our office at 661-948-4573 to schedule a FREE hearing evaluation and explanation of your results. Once you and your Beltone hearing care professional have discussed your individual audiogram results and lifestyle needs, he or she will be able to provide you with an in-office hearing aid demonstration of appropriate hearing aids.
