As much as goals are important, so is the scientific verification. Using what is called Real Ear measures, we will be ensuring that soft, average and loud sounds are comfortable and audible across all frequencies of sound. This is done with small probe microphones placed in your ear canals to determine how much sound is reaching your eardrums.
