Adult hearing test
When you suspect that you may be experiencing hearing loss, book an in-depth hearing test with our experienced audiologist right away. There’s no need for a doctor’s referral. We’ll thoroughly assess your hearing and find the best solution to help you stay connected with the people around you.
Children hearing test
If you suspect your child is having difficulty hearing, understanding you or pronouncing words, then we must address the issues early before they impact on your child’s life any further. We’ll carefully observe your child and do specific tests for their age and level of understanding, and recommendations some solutions.
Pre-employment hearing test
When you’re a candidate for a job based in a noisy environment (or you used to work in one), then a hearing assessment is included in your pre-employment medical test. If we suspect hearing loss, we’ll test further to get accurate results so we can help you prevent future loss.
WorkCover hearing test
Even when you’re wearing hearing protection, it’s compulsory that your employer arranges a baseline hearing test for you within your first year in a prescribed workplace. They may also request a pre-employment hearing assessment, subsequent tests and a pre-retirement hearing test. We also look after your custom ear protection needs.
Baseline audiometric assessment
When you’re working in a noisy workplace for the first time, you’re required to do an initial audiometric assessment to establish your baseline or overall percentage of hearing loss. You only do this test once in your lifetime. Regular hearing tests will monitor any changes in your hearing.
Full audiological assessment
We conduct a range of tests to assess your hearing in a quiet environment to determine the softest sounds that you can hear at different frequencies. We test each ear separately and record your results on an audiogram. If we suspect hearing loss, we’ll help you explore all your options.
When obtaining or renewing a scuba diving license, you’re required to take a baseline hearing test and ear pressure test to check how well your middle ear equalises pressure. This is important because hearing issues will affect your fitness to dive and put you at risk of permanent hearing loss.
Before you fly solo, a designated aviation medical examiner must certify that you’re able to recognise a particular set of sounds at specific frequencies. It’s a requirement the Civil Aviation Safety Authority sets for pilots. We’re experienced aviation medical examiners with the ability to conduct this test promptly for you.
Medical hearing test
Your doctor will prompt a full diagnostic hearing assessment when you raise concerns about your hearing. Perhaps your ears feel blocked, your hearing has suddenly dropped or you’re experiencing vertigo or tinnitus. Whatever it is, we’ll find out what’s affecting your hearing, and help you to reverse or manage it.
Hearing test for rail track safety workers
To make sure you’re safe on the tracks, the medical criteria for the Track Safety Health Assessment asks that your hearing ability is regularly tested. We’re authorised to conduct the tests that will determine whether you can detect and react fast to noise, including oncoming trains and warning signs.
Speech discrimination test
Once hearing loss or impairment is detected, we assess more than just how much you can hear. Perhaps you can still hear loud enough but the quality is distorted, muffled or intermittent. Our speech discrimination tests will give an accurate result so we can find solutions to improve your hearing.
Otoacoustic emission test
This test measures how well the ears are functioning by briefly assessing the ears separately. We fit a tiny probe into the ear canal, and this contains a microphone and speaker. The speaker introduces pulse-like sounds and microphone records the echo response from the outer hair cells in the ear.
Commercial driver’s hearing test
You’re subject to the hearing standard for commercial driver’s licenses (40dB averaged hearing in the better ear). This means being able to tell when your vehicle is facing technical issues and when others nearby activate their warning sirens. Our audiologist can assess your hearing and help you meet the standard.
This test rules out or finds the cause of tinnitus (ringing, hissing or clicking sounds in the ear). You sit in a soundproof room and wear earphones. You indicate whenever you hear the sounds the audiologist will play in one ear at a time. Results are compared with the baseline for your age. Read more…
Central auditory processing assessments
Do you suspect your child is having trouble paying attention to, remembering and processing the information they hear? It’s possible they have a central auditory processing disorder. This can only tested through a specialised set of tests that determines their ability to process sounds. We do this over two one-hour appointments. Read more…
