During a tinnitus evaluation at Sound Access you will receive a full diagnostic hearing test, including extended high frequency testing and middle ear testing. Testing will also include measurements of your subjective perception of the tinnitus sound; assessment of the minimum masking level, the volume at which an external narrowband noise masks the perception of your tinnitus; loudness discomfort level, the volume at which external sound becomes uncomfortable or painful; and assessments to measure the tinnitus burden on your daily life. At Sound Access your results will be explained to you in detail. 

Cerumen, or earwax, is naturally produced by the ears and helps to lubricate our ear canals and prevent debris from getting too far down the ear canal. Earwax typically clears itself from our ears, but in some instances earwax can accumulate, especially if you wear earplugs, in-ear monitors, or hearing aids for long periods. Too much earwax can cause earache, tinnitus, decreased hearing, or ear fullness. If a blockage occurs, it may need to be removed, especially before an ear mold impression can be taken or before testing your hearing. Depending on the severity of the blockage this can be done by our audiologist.

Part of every hearing examination at Sound Access includes middle ear testing. Tympanometry is a safe way to take objective measures of the middle ear system. The tympanometer records the energy transmission (admittance) and plots results on a graph (tympanogram).  Tympanometry provides information to help detect conditions or disorders of the middle ear.  Acoustic reflex (the reflexive contraction of the middle-ear muscles in response to certain sound stimulation) measurements provide information about the middle and inner ear, as well as eighth and seventh nerve pathways.

​Sound Access offers in-ear monitor decibel (dB) checks to assess how loud you are listening to your in-ear monitors. We use a sound level analyzer to take an in-line measurement of  your in-ear monitors or headphones to analyze and display the real-time and average dBA-SPL levels and safe listening times with both earpieces in place. We can test over 140 earphones  from 12 major manufacturers. 

Dr. Gleghorn is available to discuss a wide range of topics related to your hearing healthcare, including hearing loss prevention, risk of noise induced hearing loss in industry and risk of music induced hearing loss.

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.

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; pure tone audiometry-a tonal response test to determine hearing sensitivity and, in the the case of hearing loss, to 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).
