Hearing Test Online

The Better Hearing Institute has a hearing test online.  There is no sound involved--you will be asked to answer 15 questions about your hearing.

The computer will score your test. It will compare your responses to 11,000 people with hearing loss and produce a personalized evaluation of your hearing. These results are for your eyes only.

The results are immediate.  

The purpose is to determine whether or not you should see a hearing health professional to have your tested.

If the results suggest a professional test, please pursue it!

In my next blog, I'll suggest some questions to ask and things to consider when shopping for a hearing care professional.
