Think you may have hearing loss? The Hearing & Speech Center is here to help. Start your journey toward better hearing by taking our quick and easy online hearing screener.
Hearing Loss Screener
An online hearing screener measures how well you can hear different sounds and is used to determine if you may have hearing loss in as little as five minutes.
After reviewing your demographic information, the online hearing screener asks you questions about how you perceive your hearing in different environments and conditions.
Next is the hearing check portion of the exam. Headphones are required and we recommend completing the screener in a quiet location. A variety of tones are played through the headphones while you answer queries about each sound. The test is then repeated in your other ear.
The results of your online hearing screener are separated out by ear and indicate where your hearing ability falls on a spectrum from significant loss to good hearing. This information can be used by your audiologist to order a comprehensive set of hearing tests. Once your exact type, degree and configuration of hearing loss has been determined, a treatment plan can be customized to fit your unique needs.
What do I do with my online hearing screener results?
An online hearing screener can indicate if you may have hearing loss through a series of self-reported questions. The results should be used to prompt you to visit an audiology office, where a complete hearing exam will be performed. These tests are used to determine your type of hearing loss and measure your exact degree of damage.
Your results are then used by your audiologist to create an individualized treatment plan.
