This online hearing test is a screening that can help verify if you have hearing loss. However, it is not meant to replace a more accurate measurement of your hearing abilities by one of our hearing care experts.

Our online hearing test begins with four simple questions about your hearing in everyday situations. Afterward, you’ll listen to several short conversations with background noise present. After hearing each discussion, you’ll be asked a few questions. Your answers will show how well you heard what was said in the conversations. Once you have completed the online hearing test, you’ll get instant feedback on how you performed.

If the online hearing test indicates that you may have reduced hearing, you will have the opportunity to book a free hearing test with one of our hearing care experts. The appointment is free of charge, noncommittal, and can be completed in just a few minutes. 

Based on the answers you give in the online test, you’ll be placed into one of three categories: no hearing loss, moderate hearing loss or severe hearing loss. 

If the online test finds that your hearing is reduced, we provide you with an opportunity to make an appointment with one of our hearing care providers. 

At the appointment, we can perform a more detailed test of your hearing, and our specialists will provide you with guidance on how to treat hearing loss going forward. Our hearing tests are free of charge and completely with no obligation, just like the online hearing test.

Many people use online hearing tests or hearing test apps to get a general idea of how well they hear. These options are a great place to start. Please note, though, that online hearing test results cannot provide exact results. Not only is it impossible to ensure the sound levels you hear are calibrated correctly, they also rely solely on frequencies and tones and should therefore only be used for guidance. 

More useful online hearing tests combine self-evaluation questions and listening tests using background noise, because they help assess your ability to discern speech from noise, without needing to guarantee absolute sound levels.

However, the only way to test your hearing properly is to visit a hearing care professional.
