IN SITU AUDIOMETRY
In situ audiometry is the process of conducting a hearing test through your hearing aids. This technology was first introduced more than 20 years ago but it has moved on a lot since then.
Performing in situ audiometry is recommended by all manufacturers to get the best possible hearing aid settings.
They make this recommendation because the hearing aid software is able to compare the in situ measurement to the diagnostic audiogram that was completed in clinic.
Using this comparison the hearing aid can determine acoustic parameters which help to customise the final prescription.
In situ audiometry is also a great way of regularly monitoring your hearing between the diagnostic hearing tests which we recommend that you have every 3 years. This makes it cost effective as you reduce your time in clinic.
