Evaluate your hearing in minutes
Unsure if you have hearing loss? Our online screening is a great place to start.
In just minutes, we can help you determine if you have hearing loss and at what severity level (mild to moderate, severe to profound, or none at all). It’s completely free and doesn’t require any personal information to be submitted.
How the online hearing screening works
Take the hearing screening
Over the course of a few scenarios, we’ll ask you to listen for different sounds and words and tell us what you can hear and at what volume level. How you respond will help us evaluate what types of sounds you can and cannot hear and how background noises are impacting your hearing.

Based on your screening, we’ll quickly be able to tell you what level of hearing loss we believe you have and provide you with the appropriate next steps.
