How does the hearing loss test work?
The test takes 5 minutes and the purpose of the free online hearing test is to pinpoint your hearing challenges.
By testing your ability to hear messages in noisy environments and high frequency sounds, the online hearing loss test will be able to determine whether you should consult a hearing care professional.
After answering five questions about hearing challenges in your daily life, you will be asked to type in number combinations that are being read out to you in high background noise. The background noise will intensify during the test. After this stage you will be tested for your ability to hear high-frequency sounds.
You will then get your hearing loss test results. If these indicate that you might have a hearing loss, you can book an appointment for a follow-up consultation with a local hearing care specialist. Find one of our Audiologists near you here!
