What is a hearing test?

A hearing test measures the low frequency to high frequency sensitivity of your hearing. This reveals your ability to accurately hear different tones and whether you are able to distinguish them in noise, such as understanding what someone is saying in a loud environment.

Where can I get a free online hearing test?

You can get a free online hearing test right here on our website. All you need is a pair of headphones and 5 minutes of your time.

How accurate are online hearing tests?

While the results of this online test are not a substitute for a full hearing examination in a clinical setting, they offer you a helpful insight into how well you can hear. In case of a full examination being recommended, you can visit a hearing care professional for what is called an audiogram.

Why should I do a online hearing test ?

It is very important to check the health of your hearing, in particular if you are often in loud environments. This is because untreated hearing loss can adversely affect your social life and your health. The harder it is for you to hear well, the more you can suffer from cognitive decline with lapses in concentration and fatigue as your brain is put under additional strain.
