How to prepare for the hearing test

We care about your ears so please take a pre-test here:

Rub your hands together in front of your face. If you have trouble hearing the sound of your hands rubbing together, we recommend you seek a professional evaluation from an audiologist or physician. If you can hear the sound of your hands rubbing together, let's move forward.

  • Close all other programs and webpages to prohibit other sounds from occurring during your test.
  • In preparation for the test, find a very quiet place.
  • Turn your computer volume to full on, or 100%.
  • Insert your earbuds to get a good seal, or place your headphones over your ears.
  • Now you're ready to take the hearing test.

Take the hearing test

Take the test one ear at a time starting with your better ear first. (Typically the one you use for hearing on the phone.) Click on the
"Test Left Ear" or "Test Right Ear" button at the top of the Listening Chart that corresponds with the ear with which you are starting.

  • Start by clicking the arrow   in the top left column of the Listening Chart, and listen for a tiny tone. If you don't hear a tone, click on the arrow below it.
  • If you don't hear a tone continue clicking down until you hear a tone.
  • Once you hear the tone, stop, and go back to the arrow just above. Click on it to make sure you didn't miss hearing it. If you do hear a tone now, stop, you are done with that row. If you do not hear the tone, go back down, and click the tone that you last heard and proceed to step 4.
  • Go to the top of the second column and repeat what you just did in the first column.
  • Move your cursor to the top of the next column and start again until you have completed all six columns.
  • Click on the "Print-Save-Bookmark" button below the audiogram.
At the bottom of the page click on the tab "BACK TO MY ACCOUNT." Click on the appropriate button for testing your other ear.

Repeat the steps 1 – 5 above, starting with the top-left column, clicking down each column. Once you have navigated through all six columns, your hearing test is complete. Be sure to click the "Print-Save-Bookmark" button.

To ensure your results are consistent, please repeat the test again for both ears, saving all four tests.Your tests will be saved to your account in the order you take them. Your personal hearing test results will appear on the chart labeled Review your Audiogram below the Listening Chart.
