How to take the test

It’s important that you find the optimal environment before taking our online hearing test. This is to ensure the reliability of results.

You should:

  • Set up somewhere quiet - a loud and busy room will make it much harder to hear properly and get accurate results
  • Decide between speakers or headphones - we recommend headphones, as these will test your right and left ears individually
  • Turn the volume to a level where it’s comfortable for you

Once you’re relaxed and confident in your surroundings, feel free to begin.

What our online hearing test entails

The online hearing test is divided into two parts, which include:

  • Checking your hearing at low, mid and high-level frequencies, helping us to understand your hearing threshold for each tone
  • Answering some straightforward questions about your hearing in different scenarios – we’ll use this information to give you an idea of how well you’re hearing and if a risk of loss seems likely

If you do happen to notice any signs of hearing deterioration during or after the testing process, then contact your doctor immediately.

About this test

The Boots Hearingcare free online hearing test is to pinpoint your hearing challenges; however, nothing can replace a properly thorough examination by a professional hearing specialist. You can use it to verify any hearing loss or hearing-related issues, but make sure to arrange a face-to-face consultation to confirm the diagnosis, treatment, and action plan.

Remember, our online hearing test is designed to give you an understanding of how well you’re hearing already. It may be worth seeing an audiologist for further investigations to make sure your ears and hearing are in fine tune.
