What is Real Ear Measurement?

Real Ear Measurement (REM) or probe-mic measurements is a tool that Audiologist’s use when customizing hearing aids to your hearing prescription.  This tool measures the sound pressure level coming out of the hearing aid and hitting your eardrum.  This is important because everyone’s ear canals are slightly different and these differences can make a huge impact on the sound quality of the hearing aids.  Consumer Reports issued an article reporting that 70% of of hearing aid fittings were inaccurate when tested using REM.  The measurement takes very little time to complete and is considered best practice for audiology clinics.
