The HINT test is obsolete and we need an alternative to this test to evaluate those who have had Cochlear Implants. Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary uses the Quick Sync Test which is also a test with competing noise. The test starts with no noise present and then the noise is set louder to assess how the patient can hear in noise. It is similar to the Hint test. We have used this test with patients who are filing for disability. We are unable to find anyone to perform a CE in Massachusetts who can provide the HINT Test.
