How Do I Take a Free Online Hearing Test?
If you aren’t hearing like you used to or suspect you might have hearing loss, taking a hearing test is the first step toward finding a solution. If you aren’t ready to schedule an in-person appointment with a hearing care professional, an online hearing test is a great place to start.
Typically, these online hearing tests are convenient and very accessible: all you need are earbuds or headphones and a quiet place to sit and follow along. Take the test in the comfort of your own home—or anywhere that’s convenient for you—and your results should give you an idea of whether it’s time to take the next step and visit your local Beltone office.
Online hearing tests are often free, making them a cost-effective option for those of us who aren’t sure if it’s time to schedule that in-person appointment yet. In fact, Beltone offers a free online hearing assessment, as well as free in-office hearing assessments with a Beltone hearing care professional.Find Your Local Beltone

Why We Use Hearing Assessment and Not Hearing Test
You might have noticed as you’ve been reading that, while we refer to hearing tests in general terms, Beltone uses hearing assessment to refer to the service we provide that measures your degree of hearing loss. That’s because using the specific term test can have certain cost and service implications for Medicare and insurance providers, and we don’t want to risk any negative impact on our patients by using potentially problematic language.
The hearing assessments provided by Beltone are free—both the online hearing assessment and the in-person hearing assessment conducted by a Beltone hearing care professional. If you are found to have a treatable level of hearing loss following your free in-person hearing assessment, you may choose to pursue treatment and purchase hearing aids.
Free Online Hearing Tests Aren’t a Substitute for a Beltone Hearing Assessment
While online hearing tests can provide valuable information about your hearing health, it is important to remember that they are not a substitute for a hearing assessment performed by a trained Beltone hearing care professional. If you aren’t hearing the way you used to and suspect that you have hearing loss, it is important to schedule an in-person appointment with a Beltone hearing care professional. They can provide you with a comprehensive evaluation of your hearing ability and recommend appropriate treatment options, including hearing aids that suit your lifestyle and unique hearing needs. Beltone carries a range of hearing aid styles designed for all-day comfort and discreetness.
If you have taken the Beltone online hearing assessment or another free online hearing test and are concerned about your results, the next step is to reach out to a hearing care professional at your local Beltone office. Beltone has over 1,500 locations across the United States, making it easy to find a hearing care professional near you.
