Most people fare a little better than you in this hearing test. Untreated hearing loss can have far-reaching consequences, such as an increased risk of the development of dementia. Obviously, the online hearing test cannot cover all aspects of your hearing, and it is not a substitute for a medical diagnosis.
Our advice to you:
If you are not yet receiving treatment for your hearing loss, we recommend that you undergo a more comprehensive hearing test provided by an audiologist or an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist. This current procedure is not a substitute for a medical diagnosis; it tests your hearing in an everyday situation and therefore only provides information on the general status of your hearing. We also recommend repeating the test at regular intervals not exceeding six months.
