Check your hearing online or over the telephone

The Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID) have simple hearing checks that you can use to help you determine whether you have a hearing problem or not. They are not full hearing tests as you would get if you visited an audiologist – it’s more of a first step to help you judge whether you need to go and see an audiologist for a full assessment.

The have an online test, which you can try by clicking this link. The number for the telephone test is (UK) 0844 800 3838.

Both tests are speech in noise tests, which basically means that you will listen to people talking in different environments where this is some kind of background noise and you’ll be asked to identify what they said. The test takes about five minutes to complete.

There’s more info on the RNID site.
