Step 1 of 2

What does an online hearing test entail?

This online hearing test begins with four simple questions about your hearing in everyday situations. Afterwards, you will listen to several short conversations with background noise present. After hearing each discussion, you will be asked a few questions.

Your answers will show how well you heard what was said in the conversations. Once you have completed our online 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 complimentary hearing assessment* with HearingLife. This initial assessment is complimentary with no obligation.

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.

However, the only way to test your hearing properly is to visit a hearing care professional or audiologist. HearingLife has more than 650 locations across the United States.
