Real Ear Measurements
Real Ear Measurements help to verify that hearing aids are
amplifying sound appropriately for an individual’s hearing ability.
A small microphone is placed in the ear canal with the hearing aid to
take an accurate measurement. “Real Ear” is considered a “best practice”
in audiology, because it is the only way to ensure that the hearing
aids are fit appropriately for each patient. Everyone’s ear canal is
unique. Dr. Karen Wolff uses real ear measurements as part of an initial
hearing aid fitting and periodically as deemed appropriate throughout
the life of your hearing aids.
