Hearing and balance services for the people of Northern Utah.
Hearing loss is prevalent, affecting 1 in 8 Americans. However, many people wait to have their hearing tested. A hearing test is quick and painless. The purpose of the hearing test is to determine if hearing loss is present and what degree it is (mild, moderate, moderately severe, severe or profound).
During your hearing exam, you will sit in a sound booth with a pair of headphones on and our hearing specialist will play a series of sounds at different frequencies. After the test our team will go over your management options if a hearing loss is present.

Over 25 million Americans experience ringing in the ears, medically known as tinnitus. Tinnitus is the perception of hearing a sound (such as a buzzing, humming, ringing, or whistling) in the head or ears when no external sounds are present.
Tinnitus itself is not a hearing disorder, but rather a symptom of another issue. These vary from noise-induced hearing loss to build-up of earwax, sinus infections, jaw misalignments, or certain medications. Because of our partnerships with local ENT specialists, we can refer you if any of these conditions are the cause of your tinnitus.
To properly diagnose tinnitus, the first step is a hearing evaluation along with a tinnitus assessment. We will test your hearing to determine the root cause of your tinnitus. While there is no one tinnitus treatment that will cure these phantom sounds, hearing aids are a good management tool. Although hearing aids won’t stop ringing in the ears completely, they can help you experience relief.
Dizziness and unsteadiness are some of the most debilitating symptoms adults face. There are a large number of potential causes for dizziness and feelings of unbalance. These can be linked to vision, medication, cardiovascular health, or they can be neurological.
House of Hearing is a proud partner with the American Institute of Balance (AIB). AIB is one of the country’s best-known diagnostic, treatment, and educational facilities specializing in equilibrium disorders. Through this partnership, our doctors of audiology are accredited to diagnose and treat vertigo and balance conditions.
We offer neurodiagnostic testing to diagnose any balance conditions. All testing is easy, comfortable, and uses advanced technology. If you are experiencing unsteadiness or issues with your balance, contact us today.
Custom Hearing Protection
Loud noise exposure is one of the most common causes of hearing loss in individuals of all ages. Everyday sounds can be dangerous to hearing, especially if they exceed the safe threshold of sound which is 85 decibels. To ensure your hearing stays safe for years to come, you should wear hearing protection when exposed to loud noise.
At our hearing center, we carry custom fit earplugs and earmolds for shooter’s plugs, swim plugs, musician’s plugs, and overall hearing protection.
We know it can be difficult to come into the office. Whether because of childcare, long work hours, or lack of transportation, we understand. That’s why we offer virtual appointments. Through the use of teleaudiology, we can meet with patients virtually, so you don’t have to leave your own home.
