Sad but True I figured my hearing was off, but I didn't think it was quite so poor as that! Granted I won't take this as a professional result, but it does seem to be a clear indication that a check-up is due. I really like the way this app is designed; I've had a provincial hearing test done many years ago and the procedure was very similar. An excellent app and great place to start if you think your hearing is impaired.
Great app. Definitely follow instructions for best results Tried this app first without headphones in normal room and results were disappointing. Then put in ear buds and retook in quiet room. Results consistent with my own professional medical assessment. Hearing of a ferret, very sensitive to noise. Recommend this app, but usual caveats apply: YMMV, and this is for fun, not clinical findings. If concerned about hearing, get professional testing.
It did what I thought it would do. Make sure you have a decent pair of headphones that reproduce the sounds for more accurate results. I had to turn up the volume on several in order to hear the tone. My range was 17.5Hz to just above 15kHz. I'm sure the lowest of tones was more feel but my ear buds were able to put something out so that was cool.
The best! I tried about 3 apps, and this one was by far the best. They both tests, the second one tests to see how well you hear intervals. I was super curious since i was a pro singer, but had difficulty tuning a guitar by ear. It confirmed i couldn't heart some tight intervals. Way cool!
Need good headphones I used my bose noise canceling headphones, and this app worked great. The external speaker cannot produce the low tones for that. I had to redo the test because I said I was hearing the tones, but really I was hearing a popping sound at the beginning and end of the tone. You may want to redo the low tones to fix that. Also, it would be nice to test individual ears. I know my left hears better than the right.
Hear like an Elephant! Yep, that is accurate. But not over 70 til next year. Good side: I have to get the ladies up close so I can understand their higher pitch voices. I don't object to that. Bad side: Only heard in right earbud. Would like option to select left or right. Then becomes 5 STAR !!!!!
