Hearing Test Online

Well done, you’ve taken the positive step of checking your hearing.
You’ll get instant and accurate results in this scientifically
proven online hearing test. 

Please note: The Speech Perception Test shows you what you can and can’t hear, and it doesn’t tell you the cause of your hearing loss. It is not a substitute for medical advice.

How it works

Developed in Australia, our test offers 50 randomised, phonetically balanced words for you to hear. Your answers tell us how well you hear specific words. One of the most common reasons people decide to check their hearing, is because they’re mishearing words, so, we use words.

Three simple steps for the test

1. Sound check

Pick a quiet environment. When you start, we’ll prompt you to check your computer speakers or headphone volume.

2. Take the test

The test will play a series of 50 spoken English words, one at a time. Simply type in what you hear.

3. Contact details

Leave your name and email address so we can send your report, and a phone number to call you so we can discuss your results.


Why this hearing test is so different

Our Speech Perception Test (SPT) has given thousands of Australians insights into their hearing and provides comfort in knowing what to do next.  

It was developed by us to better reflect your world, using every-day sounds instead of machine-made beeps, and can be done accurately at home, without the need for a sound-proof booth.

Will I make sense of the results?

The test is set to a high scientific standard with easy-to-understand results. You’ll be given a score out of 50, which will put you on a hearing loss spectrum from low to high. 

If you do have a hearing loss, the results give us everything we need to set up your hearing aids. You can even use this test to measure the improvements hearing aids make to your hearing.

If it’s been a while since you did the test, it’s wise to do it again. Your hearing may have changed since the test.
