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.

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.
Could not get the app to work as advertised
Was told by a medical insurance provider that they would contact me by phone at a later date and instruct me on using the Signia app for taking a virtual hearing test at home. Wanting to be prepared I downloaded the app to an iPad Pro. Then finding a quiet spot I proceeded to take the short test to become familiar with it. Using my AirPod Pro earbuds I started the test. If there are instructions for taking the test, I couldn’t find them. All I heard was crude static coming out of my iPad speaker. Checking my settings to see if I was in fact “connected” to my AirPods . . they were. I tried again and heard only static coming out of my speaker with a VERY FAINT abstract syllable in the cacophony. I tried a different Bluetooth headset . . . Same negative result. I tried loading the app to my phone, with the same negative findings. I tried taking the Long Test . . Zip, zero. When my phone call comes I will recommend several of the other hearing apps that all worked as advertised and received 4+, or greater rating. Total waste of time . . at least it was free.
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.
