Why Take A Hearing Test?
Hearing Screening Lansing MI
A hearing test, also known as an audiometric test, is absolutely necessary in determining whether or not you are experiencing any hearing loss. This test essentially measures how well sound reaches the brain.
Sound can be described as vibrations in the air surrounding us; these vibrations make sound waves that vibrate at a particular frequency and with a certain amplitude. The speed of the vibration determines the pitch of the sound, which is how high or low the sound is. Lastly, the height of the sound determines the volume, which is also either high or low. Sound waves are travelling through the air all around us. When sound waves travel to our ears, they become nerve impulses that send a message to the brain to hear the sound.
