Tuning forks are an often-opted method of testing for certain types of hearing loss. A doctor first holds a humming tuning fork to your skull and, using a stopwatch, monitors how long you can hear it. The doctor then strikes the tuning fork again and monitors how long you can hear it when it’s held next to your ear. This is a set of three tuning forks with three different electromagnetic waves.

Test your hearing issues
Ideal for professional use
Each of the forks comes with a handle and two prongs or tines. The handle is held in the hand and the prongs are used for testing.
The prongs produce a musical tune to assess the injuries within the ear.
To produce a musical tune, the prongs vibrate at a set frequency. The three forks have three different levels of frequency.
How to use
A vibrating tuning fork is held close to the ear or placed against the skull. It will stimulate the inner ear to vibrate and can help determine if there is a loss of hearing in a patient.
The forks are made of stainless steel material. Thus they are resistant to corrosion and abrasion and can be used for a long time.
