Our Hearing Test app, which has been developed by our audiology experts, allows you to test your hearing quickly and easily. This test is completely independent of language, so you can use it reliably no matter what language you’re most comfortable with.
How the test works
The Hearing Test examines how well you can detect words with background noise. This is based on the knowledge that individuals with hearing loss have greater difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments, such as restaurants or railway stations.
During the test, you will hear imaginary words with fluctuating background noise. Your task is to select the word you heard from several options displayed on your screen. Depending on your answers, the background noise will be adjusted. Unlike similar hearing tests, the volume setting is not crucial.
The test consists of 9 test items per ear and determines how well you can understand speech in background noise. By comparing your results with the average score of other listeners, the program determines your level of hearing. However, the results of the Hearing Test are not intended to replace an official diagnosis. This can only be provided by a qualified hearing care professional.

Ratings and Reviews
I don't have a hearing loss that requires any action, yet this app shows me below average and suggests otherwise. I suspect that there are too many variables, especially headphone quality that an uncalibrated setup like this cannot account for. The most telltale "feature" of this app was that a large portion is dedicated to putting you in contact with people selling hearing aids. This always leaves me wondering if the real motive is sales or accuracy.
Non repeatable and confusing
I ran the test several times with different results each time. Sometimes it said both ears were ok, other times both ears were impaired, and other times one ear was ok and the other wasn't and vice versa. The graphs showing the results aren't explained and don't make any sense. Even when I got most tests correct, I got a low score.
New version is terrible!
I don't know what the developers were thinking with this update. The headphone recognition does not work at all. When using the app with headphones the app won’t play the sounds through them but only through the phone speakers. Very buggy!!
