Initialising the Hearing Check…
The hearing test is designed to help identify people who believe they may be suffering from hearing loss, encourage them to take action and prevent further damage to their hearing.
Our free hearing test should not replace regular audiometric testing provided by a registered hearing aid dispenser or through a review with a medical professional. Your local medical practitioner will be able to appropriately refer you if you would like a full audiological assessment if you suspect that you are suffering from a hearing impairment.
How long does it take to get a hearing test?
Our online hearing test only takes three minutes. All you have to do is enter a few details such as age and gender, plug in a set of head or earphones and then you're ready to start the test. You will get your results instantly and they will indicate if you should take further action.
How much does it cost to have a hearing test?
Our hearing test is free. You can take it in the comfort of your own home. All you will need is an internet connection, some earphones and an email address so you can get your results for free.
How do they test for hearing loss?
The hearing test will check for hearing loss by playing a set of sounds. Based on your ability to hear the sounds, the result will indicate if you should seek medical guidance. An audiologist will then be able to conduct further tests and provide professional advice on what to do next.
Who does a hearing test?
Anybody can take a hearing test. Those who are concerned about their hearing can take our hearing test to see if they could be suffering from hearing loss. The hearing test has not been designed for use by children. Children should always be seen by a doctor and referred for full diagnostic testing if there are any concerns over their hearing.
