What to Expect at Your First Visit

It’s easy to find out if a Miracle-Ear® hearing aid could help you. During your free hearing test*, we’ll work together to determine your individual needs. You’ve got nothing to lose and so many wonderful sounds to gain.

Here is what you can expect when you come in for your free hearing test*:

Complete Hearing Health History

We’ll talk with you to understand any changes you’ve noticed in your hearing, or any concerns you may have.

Ear Canal Inspection

We look inside your ear canal to check for common problems such as excessive wax buildup, damage to the eardrum, or other conditions which may make it difficult to hear clearly.

Hearing Threshold Test

This test determines your degree of hearing loss, or what we call your hearing threshold.

Speech Discrimination Test

We test your ability to hear and understand speech in both quiet and noisy environments.

If your hearing test indicates a hearing loss that could be helped by a Miracle-Ear hearing aid, we’ll let you try out some hearing aids right then, so you can hear firsthand the difference a hearing aid could make for you.

We’ll carefully explain and show you the specific models of Miracle-Ear hearing aids that might fit your lifestyle and level of hearing loss. Then, if you still wish to proceed, we can even begin the fitting process for a new Miracle-Ear hearing aid so you can begin hearing better every day.
