Note: From the Hearing Test Website
"The test was developed with funding from the National Institutes of Health and is provided on a nonprofit basis, although there is a small fee for it. The goal is to give you information that can help you decide whether you should seek a full-scale evaluation of your hearing."
The Test is free for AARP Members $5 for others.
This test does not replace hearing tests done by hearing professionals, it merely provides additional information to those uncertain if they may have a hearing problem.
