Check Your Hearing Quickly (and Easily) with an Online Hearing Test

If your ability to hear is deteriorating, the problem might be hard to pinpoint at first. Perhaps you’re asking people to repeat themselves frequently in conversation, or your family members are complaining that you keep the television volume too high. If situations like these occur repeatedly, you will likely reach a point where you want some answers about your hearing. If a visit to an audiologist is a bigger step than you are ready for, there is a simpler, anonymous option: an online hearing test. With Beltone’s online hearing assessment, you can check your hearing quickly and easily.

Just Log On and Listen

When you are ready to take the Beltone online hearing test, you should choose a quiet environment with no background noise, and choose a time when you aren’t distracted by other tasks. You will be asked to enter your gender and age range and then you can begin the assessment.

The test only takes a few minutes to complete, and it consists of two parts—a series of pictures and a series of numbers—which ask you to indicate the words you hear the speaker say, in order. As each round of questions progress, the test’s background noise gets louder, and the cues get harder to hear.

The test can be taken using headphones or your computer speakers, and you might want to take it more than once as you get used to the speed of the response time, just to ensure accurate results.

What To Do With Online Hearing Test Results

The results of your online assessment will either indicate that you unlikely have a hearing problem, you might have a hearing problem, or you are likely to have a hearing problem. If you fall in either of the latter groups, the next step is to schedule an appointment with a Beltone hearing specialist.

Beltone has hearing centers all over North America, and a quick search will lead you to a center near you. After you make an appointment, you will meet with a trained Hearing Care Specialist who can provide more in-depth hearing assessments, then outline treatment plans if you are a candidate for hearing aids.

    My wife keeps saying that I have a hearing problem. Not a “listening” problem, but a “hearing problem,” because I am always having to have her repeat herself if she doesn’t speak loud enough. I originally was looking for an actual place that could test me, but it sounds like I can get an online test to check my hearing. I’ll make sure to take the online test, so thanks for sharing!
