I can still remember going to get my hearing tested as a kid. I actually had it tested a lot, as I had many ear infections and tubes in my ears. So, have you ever wondered why you stopped getting it tested? I know I have! Hearing is a very important part of our lives, but we tend to take it for granted.
Well, now there is a hearing test you can take at home, right from the convenience of your computer chair. Just click the Free Online Hearing Test button on this Web site to get started. This takes you to a page that explains the test a little more. Next, click the Get It Done button at the bottom of the page.
Now, you’re on the test page. Follow the directions and get yourself set up. Start by playing the test tone and then slowly turn down your volume settings until you can just barely hear the test tone.
When you’ve got that set, click the Continue button. Next, adjust your speakers to half the volume and click Continue again. The test tones will then play. Click the Yes button if you can hear the tone being played. Click No if you can’t hear it. Just go through the test selecting Yes for the tones you can hear and No for the ones you can’t.
The test is a series of six tones. When you finish answering all six, you will be given your results. If you see a red X for any of your results, you may want to consider seeing a hearing specialist and having your hearing tested.
Another interesting section on this site is How We Hear, which is where you can learn all about how your ears work. You’ll need QuickTime to view the video, so if you don’t have it, you can go here to download it for free.
So, what are you waiting for? Go test your hearing today!
