Hearing Tests

Treating hearing loss starts with a hearing evaluation. Hearing tests involve a painless process that measures hearing capacity in both ears. This identifies the specific type of hearing loss present and the degree of impairment in each ear. Here is what you can expect to experience during your hearing test:

Hearing Aid Fittings

Following an audiological evaluation, our team helps you choose the right pair of hearing aids to address your needs. Our hearing aid fittings ensure that your hearing aids are fitted and programmed accurately to provide optimal hearing.

At your fitting appointment, we will verify that your hearing aids provide the correct amplification for your specific hearing needs. Our verification process includes Real Ear Measurement. Additionally, we program your hearing aid settings and walk you through the process of proper care and maintenance of your devices. Our team will assist you in the physical handling of your new devices. Your hearing aids may require batteries or wax guards, and we’ll show you how to properly replace these items.

Tinnitus

Tinnitus is one of the most common symptoms of hearing loss. It is characterized by hearing a buzzing, ringing, or clicking-like noise in one or both ears when no external sound is present. This can be severely disruptive - impacting sleep, ability to complete daily tasks, straining communication, etc. Like hearing loss, there are no cures for tinnitus but there are effective ways it can be managed, alleviating the toll it can take. 

The most common treatment for tinnitus management is sound therapy. Sound therapy programs for tinnitus use a process referred to as habituation which retrains how the brain perceives tinnitus. This is designed to mask tinnitus, lessening the sound and allowing people to better focus. There are different methods that can be used to do this including playing different relaxing and soft sounds - rain, waves, white noise, soft music, etc. - which creates ambient noise that alleviates tinnitus. 

Manhattan Audiology offers tinnitus treatment through the Levo System and Neuromonics.

Custom Hearing Protection

In addition to treating hearing loss, our practice is invested in prevention and protecting hearing health from further impairment. One of the most common causes of hearing loss is exposure to loud noise which can cause irreparable damage to the inner ear. Our practice makes custom hearing protection which reduces the absorption and impact of loud noise. This includes taking molds of your ear and creating custom earplugs. This safety measure is a great way to protect your hearing health and reduce the risk of further impairment.
