Hearing Examinations Your hearing is important. It is recommended that you receive a full diagnostic hearing test annually. A hearing test includes otoscopy-a visual inspection of your ear canal using an otoscope; tympanometry-a pressure test that examines the middle ear and eardrum; pure tone audiometry-a tonal response test to determine hearing sensitivity and, in the the case of hearing loss, determine the type; and speech audiometry-a speech understanding test used to predict how well you understand words at a comfortable loudness level. At Sound Access your hearing test results will be explained to you in detail and you will be given a copy of your audiogram-a graphic representation of your results.
Ear Mold Impressions The ear mold impression process is vital for fitting custom ear pieces. Ear mold impressions must be done correctly to guarantee proper fit allowing your ear pieces and/or monitors to function properly. Ear mold impressions should be done by a skilled practitioner to ensure safety and accuracy. Our audiologist, Dr. Gleghorn, has training and experience in making proper impressions of your ear.

In-Ear Monitor Cleaning and Care Services
Sound Access offers cleaning and care services for your custom or universal-fit in-ear monitors. We will clean any wax and debris out of the earpieces using a vacuum pump designed for use with electronic earpieces. We will use a drying system to remove moisture build-up inside the earpieces. Your in-ear monitors will also get a once over with cleaning cloths safe to use on in-ears. Keeping your in-ears dry and clear of wax and debris is essential to increasing their longevity and performance, so make sure to ask about products we offer that you can use day-to-day to take care of your monitors in between cleanings with us.
