Take a hearing quiz

The following hearing loss check is based on the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery's revised five-minute hearing test.* It is a way to quickly assess potential hearing loss that may require an objective hearing test and a possible hearing solution.


You will be asked questions about your hearing in a range of scenarios. Answer each question as though you are not using any hearing aids or devices designed to improve your hearing.
