Hearing loss affects individuals in all age groups, not just the elderly. Testing for it early will increase your chances of successful treatment. If you are worried that you may be suffering from hearing loss, use the iPhone app uHear for a quick screening test.
This app uses three easy tests to determine the range of your hearing: a hearing sensitivity test, a speech in noise test, and a questionnaire. Be sure to have a pair of headphones handy when using this app.
You can use this app to self-diagnose your potential hearing loss, but be sure to make an appointment with an audiologist if you are experiencing difficulty hearing. If you live in New York City, contact Dunshaw Hearing Aid Centers at (888) 903-6717 or visit our website for information about our comprehensive audiological services.
