Reputable Hearing Test Perth
Reliable Hearing Test
If you score more than 3 out of 12 on the test, it is recommended you see an audiologist, if you scored 2 or less but are still concerned about your hearing, we still recommend consulting an audiologist.
When was the last time you had a hearing test? Most people haven’t been screened since their school years, but it can become less sharp over time.
Many people wait until they experience a noticeable loss in hearing or encounter another issue like an ear infection before getting tested. But regular testing can help catch an issue before it becomes an impairment.

Services We Offer
We have a pediatric audiologist, Kerryn, who works at both of our Perth clinics. There are different tests for children of different ages. We will assess which method is most suitable for your child based on their capabilities.
Our tests aren’t confined to a “one size fits all” approach, but are carefully designed to match each individual. We assess the specific conditions of your ability to hear. Our clinics are located in Perth and Geraldton.
Who are these tests suitable for?
There’s no single sign that it’s time for the screening test. However, if you notice you’re struggling to hear like you used to, going for a test is a great idea. You’ll be able to uncover or rule out any issues and improve your quality of life by having the problem addressed.
Babies and young children are regularly checked as proper ability to hear can lead to proper development. This is crucial as children that show signs of hearing difficulty may go for more regular assessments or to a medical professional to rule out any underlying causes.
People who work in noisy environments for prolonged periods of time, such as factories or airports, may also be eligible for baseline testing and regular audiological tests. This can help preserve health as well as ensure proper compensation by programs like WorkCover if your ability to hear is damaged on the job.

Frequently Asked Questions About Perth Hearing Tests
Our audiologist will test your ability to detect sounds in each ear at different frequencies, tones, volumes, and lengths. You might find some of the bells or beeps a bit repetitive after a while, but since this test does not last long, you don’t have to worry. They may also look in your ear using an otoscope, but this is a non-invasive check and takes just a few seconds.
Regular testing and prevention are the best methods. But if you run into any of these signs, you may want to ring up an audiologist.
- Difficult ability to hear among background noise
- Ringing sensations or sounds in your ears
- Feedback from others that you talk too loud
- Frequently turning up the volume on devices
- Asking people to repeat themselves in conversation
It’s recommended to have your ability to hear checked regularly, at least once yearly. This can help catch any issues as they crop up. If you work in a noisy environment, your employer or union may mandate regular testing to ensure your safety and health. Anyone already aware of the issues should have regular testing done as recommended by their audiologist or GP to track changes.
Not at all. One in six Australians struggle with hearing loss, half of whom are between the ages of 16-65. With less emphasis on the ability to hear as part of comprehensive health, many people go without treatment or realise that their ability to hear is diminishing over time until it reaches worsening levels. These issues can lead to interpersonal, communication, well-being, and employment issues. This makes it important for everyone, even the young or those with no prior history of trouble hearing, to go for regular hearing tests.
