Comprehensive hearing and speech testing measures your hearing. To perform this test, an audiologist places earphones in your ears and asks you to respond to different sounds and words. The sounds and words have different pitches and intensities.
Speech testing is also done with earphones in place. During this test, you are asked to repeat certain two syllable words. The softest level you can correctly repeat 50 percent of the words you hear is called your speech reception threshold.

If you are having trouble with your hearing, contact your healthcare provider. Be prepared to discuss your symptoms and how long you have had them.
