Glad you asked. We wanted to create an easier way for people, just like you, to get their hearing tested in a faster, more affordable, and more convenient, way than was previously available.
So creating an online option allows us to help you learn about your hearing from home in just a matter of minutes, while still providing you accurate and instant results.
We feel it's a win, win, win.
Why we made our hearing test an online test.
The science behind the Audicus Online Hearing Test.
After opening the Audicus Online Hearing Test in any web browser, you will be asked to enter some details to create a profile so your results can be personalized. The test requires headphones (ideally earbuds for accuracy) and takes 5-10 minutes to complete. Once completed, you will be instantly emailed your results for your records and will be offered a free consultation.
Why we made an online hearing test at all.
Our team, lead by a neuroscience engineer, spent 2-years researching, designing, and verifying the science before testing hundreds of individuals over multiple trials. In May 2017 the test launched, testing both ears against a multitude of sound frequencies, at varying decibel volumes. It was the first online test accurate enough to program custom hearing aids from the results.
