Identify the volume and pitch at which you hear the ringing.
In addition to a standard hearing assessment, a tinnitus assessment will identify the volume and pitch at which you hear the ringing or buzzing in the ear, known as tinnitus.
In the majority of people, tinnitus occurs in both ears at the same time, but it can occur in just one ear. There are multiple causes of tinnitus – wax buildup and hearing loss being the most common – so it’s important to perform an assessment to understand how best to manage your individual case.
What you can expect from a tinnitus assessment.
At a tinnitus assessment we perform all the same tests as a hearing assessment, as well as:
- Two tinnitus questionnaires
- Tinnitus pitch matching test
- Tinnitus level test
- Loudness discomfort assessment
- Explanation of results and recommendations

Frequently asked questions.
Do I need a referral?
A referral is not required for a tinnitus assessment.
If you have private health insurance with extras or are a member of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), your tinnitus assessment may be funded. There are no other funding options available for a tinnitus assessment.
The most common cause of tinnitus is hearing loss. Other reasons can be due to a buildup of earwax, noise exposure and ear infections.
