Hearing and Communication Needs Assessment

At Western Colorado Hearing & Balance, we are dedicated to providing hearing aids that are properly fit and customized to every individual patients needs. Hearing aid assessments are part of the fitting process and help to ensure the appropriate hearing aids / assistive devices are selected and properly fit. Hearing aid assessments may consist of the following:

Acceptable Noise Level

Determining acceptable noise intensities while listening to speech.


The QuickSIN is a speech-in-noise test that measures the ability to hear in noise. Speech understanding in noise cannot be reliably predicted from the audiogram or other standard hearing tests.

Abbreviated Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit

The APHAB is a valuable clinical instrument. It is useful for quantifying the disability associated with a hearing loss and the reduction of disability that is achieved with a hearing aid or assistive device.

Hearing Aid / Assistive Device Demonstration

The hearing aid / assistive device demonstration consists of fitting the appropriate device based upon the above-mentioned tests along with a discussion on the appropriate technology and features that will most benefit the patient. This demonstration allows the patient to experience the benefit of the hearing aids / assistive device in their own environment where they encounter the most difficulty.

Conformity/Real Ear Verification

REAL EAR Measurement represents a valid, repeatable and reliable method of assessing the sound pressure level in the ear canal with or without a hearing instrument in-situ, via a calibrated probe tube placed 3mm-5mm from the tympanic membrane. The primary purpose of REM is to measure the performance of a hearing instrument while in the patient’s ear to ensure that sounds are audible, comfortable and tolerable across the frequencies of the patient’s reduced dynamic range.

Make better hearing a reality.
