What does an online hearing test entail?
This online hearing test begins with four simple questions about your hearing in everyday situations. Afterward, you will listen to several sounds. After hearing each sound, you will need to do this lowest possible sound audible to you.
Your answers will show how well you heard what was said in the conversations. Once you have completed our hearing test, you will get feedback on whether you could have hearing loss.
If the online hearing test indicates that you may have reduced hearing, you will have the opportunity to book a hearing assessment* with Hearing care 360.
How effective are online hearing tests?
Our “online hearing test” gives you a general indication of your hearing ability; however, it is a hearing self-screening and not an audiological test.
Many people use online hearing tests or hearing test apps to gain an indication of their hearing ability. Please note that online hearing test results cannot provide exact results because it is impossible to ensure the sound levels you hear are calibrated correctly. Online
hearing tests that rely solely on frequencies and tones are not reliable.
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 or audiologist.
Do I need hearing aids?
Maybe someone has said you are a little hard of hearing or hearing impaired, or perhaps a music concert caused sudden hearing loss. Or perhaps you think a loud noise has caused hearing loss in one ear. If you suspect hearing loss, we suggest you read more about these
