Hearing Test

Hearing Test

If you think you might have hearing damage, try our Hearing Test.

When a person's hearing has been damaged by excessive noise exposure, they often report that they have trouble hearing in noisy environments. To help identify this problem, we developed an online hearing test that measures how well you can hear in a noisy background. It offers you the opportunity to find out if your hearing is showing early signs of damage.

Of course, this is not a substitute for a hearing test by a qualified clinician such as an audiologist or ENT specialist, and your results should not be considered as medical advice.
