A Speech-in-Noise test will give you an indication of how well you can understand speech in a noisy environment. The various background noises that are present in day-to-day life can sometimes make listening difficult – especially when trying to understand speech. In this respect, Speech-in-Noise tests are designed to mimic real-life circumstances.
A person with a hearing loss will often be less able to understand speech, especially in noisy conditions. This is especially true for people who have a sensorineural hearing loss – which is by far the most common type of loss. At Aston Hearing Services we use Speech-in-Noise tests as a verification measure which can provide valuable information about a person’s hearing ability, and can be used to verify the benefit of hearing aid amplification.
I was very grateful for your detailed diagnosis of my hearing problem yesterday and amazed to find your report in the post today! It was very kind of you to attend to it so quickly.
If I eventually need a hearing aid I will return to you and in the meantime will sing the praises of Aston Hearing Services.
Thank you very much.
