Get the hearing care answers you need with a hearing evaluation.

Statistics show that 48 million American adults suffer from some type of hearing loss. Unfortunately, hearing loss is often a part of the aging process. That’s why we agree with medical professionals who recommend that adults over the age of 50 include hearing care exams in their routine health care.

Don’t Wait for a Hearing Test

Despite numerous studies that show the correlation between hearing health and other health issues, many people ignore or avoid testing, sometimes for years. At Beltone Tristate, we know that early detection is the key to prevent your hearing loss from affecting other aspects of your health. If left untreated, hearing loss can lead to other health issues such as depression, fatigue, dementia, and cognitive decline.

Hearing Test Process

Beltone has covered hearing care solutions for over 50 years. At Beltone Tristate, our hearing tests are comfortable, comprehensive, and 100% free. Beltone’s comprehensive hearing test has four steps.

Step One

Personalized Assessment

It’s important that we understand how your hearing loss is affecting you and impacting your life. This will help us identify the different symptoms you are experiencing and personalize a solution that will address your hearing needs.

Video Ear Exam

After we get to know you, we perform a screening of your hearing with a video otoscope. This allows us to see the inside of your ear canal and eardrum. The images are projected onto a computer screen, where our hearing care professionals can see if there are any issues or obstructions that may be affecting your hearing, like ear wax or a possible infection. The can is a quick procedure that is painless and non-invasive.

Step Three

Audiometric Test

The next step in your hearing assessment is an audiometric test. Using computerized equipment, we narrow down the type of hearing loss you are experiencing. We use a series of tests that determine how well you hear a range of sounds, including tone and speech testing, air and bone testing, and word discrimination testing.
