Acoustic reflex test results give the clinician valuable information regarding the severity of your hearing loss and the possible cause of your hearing loss. It is also a valuable test in detecting problems in the auditory pathway.
The complete acoustic reflex test battery takes only a few minutes. During this test, you will be asked to sit very still and not move your head or mouth. You will hear a series of loud sounds of varying pitches in each ear and the equipment will measure the presence or absence of the reflex.
