Like another poster mentioned free if you go To a hearing aid dealer. Miracle ear or audibel. Warning: even if you have a very mild hearing loss they will try to get you to buy a hearing aid(s). Normally only a few minutes for the test itself. You can ask for the test results (audiogram) and bring it to your ENT to interpret the next time you go to them. They aren't as aggressive in the sale of hearing aids.

Just go to an audiologist. An ENT is an ear, nose and throat specialist but an Audiologist is a hearing specialist. Sad to say but I've worked with plenty of ENTs that can't read an audiogram to save their lives nor should they. It's an audiologist that will counsel, select, program and follow through with hearing aids, not an ENT.
