All people should check their hearing from time to time, especially those who are at a higher risk of hearing loss such as adults above 50 years, those working in noisy places, those listening to music at high volumes for long periods of time and those experiencing ear problems.

Services for early identification and intervention should be made available through the health system.

The accuracy of your test results will depend on the type of headphones you use, as well as the ambient noise level. The results we provide are intended as a first step in testing your hearing. Please always seek advice from a medical professional.

1. If your result from using hearWHO was not favourable, we strongly recommend you obtain a complete hearing evaluation by a certified service provider / medical professional to determine your exact hearing status.
2. Even if your results are in the positive range but you have concerns about your hearing, we encourage you to seek a complete hearing evaluation performed by a certified service provider / medical professional.
3. Whilst the test has a reasonable degree of accuracy, it is only intended as a screening test, with a small proportion of cases that may be incorrectly classified.
4. The WHO and hearX Group will not be held responsible or liable for any results that are incorrect or for your use of the application.
5. hearWHO is only intended for use by persons 16 years of age and above. The test is not intended to be used for children and will not provide reliable results in such cases.
6. A visit to a certified service provider can assist in differentiating between different types of hearing problems.
7. Hearing loss may be caused by obstruction of the outer ear canal from wax, fluid or changes in the structure or function of the middle ear system, and changes in function of the nervous system.
8. Some of these hearing problems can be treated whilst others may be permanent and may need assistive devices.
9. It is important to consult with a certified service provider early; all forms of hearing loss may become more serious is they are left unaddressed.

Good and bad hearing

I just did it twice. My first score was a 48, I should have my hearing checked. The second score was an 81, good hearing.
So which is it? And it’s not a true test, because I am REALLY concentrating on listening for the numbers.
When listening to people talk, there are other distractions that make you miss words!

Consistent results

I have strong permanent hogh frequency tinitus and tested it twice, first at lower volume of about 2/3rds maximum and then at 50% volume. Both times using good Sennheiser Momentum wired over-ears headphones, the result was exactly the same 76%.
This app is a great companion to app Hearing Test & Ear Age Test v1.8, also available in the app store, that will test you like in a professional audiometry test, also quite accurate.

Cannot finish test due to not hear anything

I use AirPods like 6hrs a day. This app falls in total silence after Test 8. The intro part works fine. And I got only 27 points. I don’t think my hearing can be that bad. (or Do I ?)
