Online Hearing Test

Catching a hearing loss early is the best way to prevent it from worsening. The following questionnaire has been adapted from a self-assessment tool created by the American Academy of Otolaryngology. Please take the time to answer each question as accurately as possible.

Most hearing loss develops gradually, so the signs are difficult to detect. Ask yourself these questions to test how you are hearing:

01 Do people seem to mumble or speak in a softer voice than they used to?
02 Do you feel tired or irritable after a long conversation?
03 Do you sometimes miss key words in a sentence or frequently need to ask people to repeat themselves?
04 When you are in a group or in a crowded restaurant, is it difficult for you to follow the conversation?
05 When you are together with other people, does background noise bother you?
06 Do you often need to turn up the volume on your TV or radio?
07 Do you find it difficult to hear the doorbell or the telephone ring?
08 Is carrying on a telephone conversation difficult?
09 Do you find it difficult to pinpoint where an object is (e.g. an alarm clock or a telephone) from the noise it makes?
10 Has someone close to you mentioned that you might have a problem with your hearing?
