Hearing Loss Testing
An online hearing test measures how well you can hear different sounds and is used to determine if you may have hearing loss in as little as five minutes. After reviewing your demographic information, the online hearing test asks you questions about how you perceive your hearing in different environments and conditions.
Next is the hearing check portion of the exam. Headphones are required and we recommend completing the test in a quiet location. A variety of tones are played through the headphones while you answer questions about each sound. The test is then repeated in your other ear.
The results of your hearing test indicate how well you are hearing in each ear. This information can be used by your audiologist to order a comprehensive hearing evaluation. Once your exact type, degree and configuration of hearing loss has been determined, a treatment plan will be customized to fit your unique needs.
Benefits of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids are the most widely prescribed treatment plan for hearing loss. Compared to individuals who choose to live with untreated hearing loss, those who treat their loss with hearing aids report improved:
- Overall health
- Professional success
- Emotional wellbeing
- Self confidence
What do I do with my online hearing test results?
The results should be used to prompt you to visit an audiologist, where a diagnostic hearing evaluation will be performed. Your audiologist then uses the results to create a customized hearing treatment plan.
*With any self-administered hearing test, inconsistencies in response will affect test reliability. Always consult a licensed audiologist to receive a complete diagnostic hearing assessment.
