Check your hearing in Franklin County, North Carolina

Have you experienced a change in your hearing? Do you have tinnitus or buzzing in your ears? If so, we welcome you to schedule a hearing assessment with a hearing care professional in our Franklin office. You can also check your hearing online.

Do you know what to expect at your first appointment with HearingLife? 

A hearing assessment is the first step to see if you have hearing loss. A licensed hearing care provider will inspect your ears and use various methods to check your hearing. You will sit in a comfortable soundproof room or sound booth and wear headphones. Then we will ask you to listen to and respond to various tones, speech sounds and voices.

Your responses will be recorded on an audiogram and the results will help indicate if you have hearing loss or not. We are happy to answer any questions and fully review your results with you. After that, we can discuss next steps.

Generally a hearing assessment and consultation takes less than an hour. Learn more about your hearing when you visit us.

  2. You will be able to try on and test out how the hearing aids feel and work. If you need an in-the-ear hearing aid that is personally molded to your ears, we will take an impression of your inner ear.

  3. We will fit or order the devices and program them to meet your individual hearing needs.

Today's hearing aids are modern, tasteful and discreet. In addition, our hearing aids are more technically advanced than ever before. We carry rechargeable hearing aids and offer a wide array of connectivity options via Bluetooth®.
