When was Your Last Hearing Test?

When was your last hearing test? What is Audicus? Until a few weeks ago we didn’t know until Audicus invited us to their launch party. Audicus is an online provider of hearing aids and now offers free online hearing tests. This technology is innovative in relation to healthcare by saving a trip to an ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) Doctor and/or Audiologist. With Audicus, the aid to better hearing is now literally a click away.

Audicus Hearing Aid

With concerts, headphone use and gaming, audio plays a huge part of our everyday lives compared to generations past. 1 in 5 adults in the United States suffers from hearing loss and the average person falls into two categories: needing a hearing aid or being curious about their hearing health. The Audicus web-based hearing test allows you to identify issues with hearing from the comfort of your home. To get started with Audicus, fill out a brief questionnaire with audiogram results from your ENT Specialist to view your recommended hearing device. If you just want to know how good your hearing is or find solutions to improve, take their free hearing test online. Depending on results, the application provides solutions to further assist you.

Kory taking a Hearing Test

During the launch party, we each took the online hearing test. Lasting only 10-minutes, it was actually a fun, easy way to monitor our hearing health. The room we tested in was lively so our results were a bit flawed. For best results, take the test in a quiet room with good headphones.

Hearing loss is a serious issue that is often overlooked. Audicus offers daily customer service via email, chat, and phone has quick processing time and offers low price markups on their top of the line hearing aids. We enjoyed the Audicus experience and would recommend taking the online hearing test if you’re curious about your hearing health.

    You know I hadn’t thought about getting a hearing test. Strange, you get annual check-ups (which mine do not include hearing), maybe hearing should be included! Thanks for sharing.

    Haven’t had a test in a while. Might be worth looking into. Thanks for sharing.

    Sometimes people don’t want to admit they have a problem because they don’t want to wear a hearing aid. But hearing aids have come so far, you almost can’t even tell people are wearing them.

      Right! They look so small and are barely visible now.

    OMG I haven’t had a hearing test in ages it seems. You’re right, with the excessive use of headphones and everything else, I should pay more attention to my hearing. Seriously, thank you for this conversation and introducing me to Audicus. I’m getting that free hearing test done soon!

    Wow, I have not had a hearing in so many years. This post is a great reminder. I have never heard of this brand and its virtually invisible. Thanks,

    This. Is. So. Cool. I don’t think I have had a hearing test since I was a kid. I probably should have it checked out. I will definitely try this online test. How neat!

    This sounds pretty interesting. I haven’t had a hearing test since my school days, I remember having the test but have no clue when that was exactly. I was definitely a kid haha. I’m definitely going to check this out.

    You know, I’ve never had a hearing test! I can’t believe that’s true but it is! I go to my ENT for nose and throat stuff but I’ve never thought about my ears. LOL! I guess that’s because I’ve never had (or noticed) any hearing issues. Gotta make an appointment! Jeez!

    I dont remember the last time I had a hearing test. You are right with how much we use technology, it is important to test our hearing. Glad to know I could do this from the comfort of my own home.
