Take our quick hearing self-screening online

Do you suspect you have hearing loss? Our online hearing test will give you a clear indication of how well you are hearing, using background noise, tone tests and self-evaluation questions. 

This self-screening does not replace a more accurate hearing assessment* performed by one of our hearing care experts.
However, it can help verify if you have hearing loss and guide you to the appropriate next steps.


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.

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 common hearing loss symptoms.

What are the causes of hearing loss?

A common type of hearing loss is noise-induced hearing loss. This is hearing damage that results from too much exposure to loud noise. Our hearing also gets gradually worse as we get older, and small hair cells inside our ears become damaged.
