A hearing test provides an evaluation of the sensitivity of a person's sense of hearing and is most often performed by an audiologist using an audiometer. An audiometer is used to determine a person's hearing sensitivity at different frequencies. The tests results are then read by a health professional to determine if there have been any changes in hearing levels.
An audiometer hearing test is usually administered to a person sitting in a booth wearing a set of headphones which is connected to an audiometer. People having their hearing tested will convey that they have heard the tone by either raising a hand or pressing a button.
