Need a Hearing Aid? Start with the free Hearing Screening Test
Stay Home & Get Tested
There are a few things you need to prepare to get 100% satisfaction from the 3-minute Manila Hearing Aid online hearing test.
You may access the online hearing test from your desktop or you may take it from your mobile phone.
The e-screener is a free application which allows people to check their hearing regularly and intervene early in case of hearing loss.
The e-screener has two parts. In the first part, three tones are played at different frequencies and the user needs to set the loudness such that the tones are barely audible. The screener application does not analyze the absolute loudness of the tones but instead only takes into account the hearing threshold slope.
The concept is equivalent to a standard audiogram test.
The second part of the online hearing check consists of four questions referring to everyday hearing situations.
Afterwards, the overall result of the test is calculated based on the hearing threshold slope and the answers to the questions.
This is only a diagnostic evaluation. It does not replace the professional hearing test.
Hence, an initial chat with a hearing care specialist is needed after taking the test.
You need headphones for this test. There are also instructions clearly laid out for you to ensure both ears can hear the tones.
You Get the Results Right Away in the Comfort of Your Home
We interpret them for you.
This is an adult hearing test that is recommended to be done as we age. As we get older (those who are 50 or above) or due to constant exposure to noise, our hearing may have been deeply affected without our knowing it.
So after the hearing screening test, expect a call from our hearing care specialist. From the ensuing conversation, she will be able to give you any of these options:
It may be an online consultation with the ENT physician which she can arrange for you. Or it may be a more thorough interview with a hearing care specialist who can explain the varying degrees of hearing loss and the types of hearing aids that are suitable for your circumstances.
Frequently Asked Questions
If I take the online hearing test, do I always have to leave my email address?
You will only be asked to leave your email address if you want to get a detailed report. This detailed report will also be emailed simultaneously to the hearing care specialist who will call you to interpret the results and, if you allow her, to interview you for other relevant information to determine if indeed you have a certain degree of hearing loss.
If I failed this online hearing test, does it mean I have a hearing loss?
Not necessarily. This online hearing test is the closest thing to the audiology test that Manila Hearing Aid has in its clinic. It only serves as a diagnostic evaluation of your hearing. It is important that you speak to our hearing care specialist immediately so she can ascertain if indeed you have hearing loss. It usually takes a number of one-on-one online consultations before a hearing loss can be established.
Am I required to buy a hearing aid after the online consultation?
No. This free online hearing test is given as an extra service to all individuals who are interested to know if they are suffering from a certain degree of hearing loss. Having it online spares them from going to the clinic. At this time of the pandemic, this may already assuage the fears that come from being exposed too much too soon after the ECQ.
Will you deliver a hearing aid for fitting?
If the hearing care specialist assessed that you have a certain degree of hearing loss which can best be resolved or improved with the use of a hearing aid, she will send you the hearing aid of your choice via Lalamove. Please take note that you will make this choice after you have been presented the different types and styles of hearing aids that Manila Hearing Aid offers to its patients. Actual costs of the hearing aids, and delivery fees will be given as well during the consultation.
