Check Your Hearing

Is my hearing normal?

The following list of questions, while not exhaustive, will provide good indication of any hearing problems.

  • Do you often feel that other people are ‘mumbling’?
  • Do you have trouble understanding a conversation when there is background noise?
  • Do you need to turn up the volume on the television or radio?
  • Do you often ask people to repeat what they have said?
  • Do you feel stressed or tired when you have to listen for long periods?
  • Do you avoid social gatherings because there is too much noise and you struggle to hear?
  • Do friends and family ask if you have a hearing problem?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to three or more of these questions, we recommend an in-depth hearing assessment with one of our qualified and experienced audiologists. This will determine the nature of your loss, if you require medical referral and/or whether hearing aids can help.

You will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns, learn the exact nature of your loss and consider possible solutions. We even offer trial periods and demonstrations of our hearing aids, so you can discover just how much you may have been missing out on.

For a quick online hearing check, follow this link. The hearing check will only take a few minutes and will indicate how clearly you can hear in different levels of background noise (you will require headphones).

The online check can only give you a rough idea of how well you hear. There is no substitute for a proper hearing assessment carried out by a professionally trained audiologist.

Remember – hearing loss is more noticeable than a hearing aid!
