About Audiometry

Audiometry is a test of your hearing to determine the softest sound level that you are able to hear across a spectrum of sound frequencies ( high, medium or low). Testing is done separately for the right and left side. During the test, you will hear a sound first through headphones (where the test sounds are transmitted through the air) and then via sound conductors placed against the bone behind your ear (where the test sounds are transmitted directly through your bone to the inner ear).
