Test Your Hearing

Test Your Hearing

The majority of people who have hearing loss have developed it over a long period without feeling any pain. If you do have hearing loss it can have a profound affect on your everyday life. You may be finding it difficult to communicate with work colleagues and family because you are struggling to hear everything they say.

Test Your Hearing

Take this quick test and check your ability to hear properly

1. Do people seem to mumble or speak in a softer voice than they use to?
2. Do you feel tired or irritable after a long conversation?
3. Do you sometimes miss key words in a sentence, or frequently need to ask people to repeat themselves?
4. When you are in a group or in a crowded restaurant, is it difficult for you to follow the conversation?
5. When you are together with other people, does background noise bother you?
6. Do you often need to turn up the volume on your TV or radio?
7. Do you find it difficult to hear the doorbell or telephone ring?
8. Is carrying on a telephone conversation difficult?
9. Do you find it difficult to pinpoint where an object is (e.g an alarm clock or a telephone) from the noise it makes?
10. Has some close to you mentioned that you might have a problem with your hearing?

How Did You Do?

If you answered “yes” to at least two of these questions, you may have a hearing loss and should have your hearing tested.
