The Miracle-Ear online hearing test will take less than five minutes, and gives you a score out of ten at the end to indicate the quality of your hearing. All you need is a pair of headphones with the sound adjusted to the level you’re usually comfortable with. To help with this, use the audio listening tool you’re presented with before you start the test. Tweak the sound level until you can hear the voice comfortably and clearly. For the most precise results, we recommend you don’t use your computer speakers.
During the hearing test, you'll be presented with six sound clips depicting everyday scenarios, such as people talking in a busy bar or somebody asking for directions in the street. At the end of the clip, you will be asked a question about what you’ve just heard and must pick from four options. Once you’ve answered the six questions, you will be given a score out of ten and a recommendation based on your results.
When taking a free hearing test online, it’s important to remember its limitations. While today’s technology is advanced, online tests are only to be used as a general indication of hearing loss. If your results indicate you may be experiencing hearing loss, you should seek assessment from a qualified hearing care professional. Booking a free hearing evaluation with a professional is free, easy and can be done online.
