What happens during the Online Hearing Test?

The online hearing test consists of three main parts:

  • Everyday listening situations
    Answer 4 self-evaluation questions about your hearing abilities.
  • Tone testing
    Listen to a selection of tones and see how well you hear at different sound frequencies.
  • Conversation comprehension
    Listen to a short conversation and respond to a few questions.

What happens after the test?

Once you've taken the test, you will receive your results immediately. If your results indicate that you might have hearing loss, we recommend that you book a free, comprehensive hearing test at one of our hearing clinics.

As part of your evaluation, you will also learn about recommended solutions based on your hearing evaluation results.

The Online Hearing Test does not replace a comprehensive hearing evaluation

While the online hearing test is a valuable way to learn if you might have hearing loss, it does not replace a comprehensive hearing evaluation administered by a certified hearing care expert. Our online hearing test can be a guide in helping you decide whether you should go ahead and book an appointment with a hearing care expert. 

The online hearing test is a screening test and therefore has a binary pass or fail criteria. This will allow you to understand whether further testing is needed to uncover your hearing ability (by visiting an in-clinic professional for an in-person hearing test).

If the online test does not pick up on any signs of hearing loss and you are still concerned that you might have hearing loss, then we recommend that you contact your local hearing care clinic for a comprehensive hearing evaluation.

Why regular hearing tests are important

Living with untreated hearing loss affects far more than your ability to hear. It may affect your ability to socialise with friends and family, leaving you feeling isolated or lonely.

Hearing loss can also affect your memory and your mental sharpness. It may even increase your risk for cognitive decline. 

The good news is that hearing aids can improve your hearing so that you can enjoy engaging in your favorite activities and socialising with friends and family. Today's discreet, comfortable and technologically advanced hearing aids are effective at treating hearing loss, and they can significantly improve your quality of life.
