What happens after the test?

After the test you’ll get your results almost immediately. If your results show that you might have hearing loss, we recommend that you book a free, in-depth hearing test at one of our hearing clinics.

The online hearing test does not replace a comprehensive hearing evaluation

While our free online hearing test is a valuable way to learn if you might have hearing loss, it doesn’t replace an in-depth hearing evaluation administered by one of our registered hearing care experts. The online hearing test can be a good way to decide whether you should go ahead and book an appointment with us.

Our free online hearing test is a screening test and therefore has a binary pass or fail criteria. This will allow you to understand whether further testing is needed to uncover your hearing ability.

If the online test doesn't pick up on any signs of hearing loss but you're still worried about your hearing, then we recommend that you get in touch to book a free, comprehensive hearing evaluation.
