Please realize that this online hearing test is not equivalent to a professional hearing test performed by a hearing health professional. It is meant to help you assess whether or not you should see a hearing health professional. If, for any reason, you feel you are suffering from hearing loss that needs to be addressed, consult your family doctor, an ear-nose-throat physician, or a hearing health professional (audiologist or hearing instrument specialist).
To help people understand the serious impact that hearing loss can have on their lives, the Better Hearing Institute has developed and validated a simple 15-item online test that individuals can take in the privacy and comfort of their own home. The test is designed to help people better understand just how serious their hearing loss is, and to determine whether or not they need further help.
