Online Hearing Test

This easy at-home screening will help you check for hearing problems. It is also intended to give you an idea of what some parts of a hearing evaluation might be like.

Of course, any online hearing test is no substitute for a hearing screening by a hearing professional like an audiologist, hearing aid specialist or ENT doctor. (Please note that your results may not reflect your true hearing difficulties due to the quiet environment of your home or office.)

At the end of the hearing test you will see your results and next steps.
