How to quickly test your hearing with our 1 minute online test? For a quick start, just click the "Start Test" button, a special test audio signal with an increasing frequency will be played. Listen to the sound until you catch the signal. At the moment when the sound signal disappears completely, fix its frequency. For example, if at a frequency of 14000 Hertz you no longer hear the sound of the test signal, then your threshold (maximum high frequency) is 14000 Hertz with an error of +/- 200 Hertz. The test is best carried out in complete silence so that extraneous sounds do not interfere with hearing the test signal. Use headphones for a more accurate result.

Remember, our online hearing test does not give a complete and real picture of your hearing. We are just helping to determine what is the maximum frequency of sound you can hear. However, with age, a person is not able to hear high frequencies, while teenagers and young children can hear very high frequencies up to 20000 hertz (20 kHz). Considering your age, compare your result with the hearing table. Take the test several times to more accurately determine the threshold of the audible frequency.

By the way, you can specify the desired sound frequency (for example, specify the frequency of 15000 hertz) using our free online tone generator and test your hearing this way.
