Because enjoying music and watching videos on any number of personal electronic devices are such popular pastimes with so many people, they may want to have their hearing checked out. An “audiometry test” utilizes an “audiometer” to introduce sounds into a headphone (one ear at a time), which the wearer uses to hear a variety of sounds at different intervals. The test enables the hearing professional administering it to determine at what level of intensity of a person can hear. If the individual being tested has any hearing loss, the hearing specialist can suggest ways to correct the problem and avoid future loss. If you value your hearing, you owe it to yourself to have it checked.
P.S. Sound intensity is measured in decibels (dB), while a sound’s tone is measured in cycles per second in Hertz (Hz).
Not being able to hear well isn’t just frustrating, it also can be a safety concern – especially when it interferes with the ability to hear warning signals, such as police sirens, weather alarms, or railroad crossing and train whistles.
