The tuning fork test – carried out with a special device, tuning fork – allows the doctor to evaluate the nature of a hearing impairment quickly and easily. The results of the test offer guidance rather than a conclusive diagnosis, therefore, the test is usually followed by additional tests.

The examination is performed at the ENT’s office.

It is useful to know

  • A special device, a tuning fork, is held against the auricle and behind the ear against the bone. 
  • The patient is asked in which case he or she hears the device (the sound it makes) better.

A negative Rinne test result is indicative of a conductive hearing problem.

  • A special device, a tuning fork, is held against the crown (or the forehead).
  • The patient is asked where he or she hears the sound, and which ear the sound travels to.

If the client hears the sound travelling only to one ear, this is indicative of a conductive hearing problem (the sound travels to the ear in which hearing is worse) and/or a sensorineural hearing problem (the sound travels to the ear in which hearing is better).

No preparation is required for this examination.
