Test your hearing

As our hearing usually changes slowly over the years, a hearing loss can be quite difficult to recognize. Take the opportunity to test your hearing right now, it only takes a few minutes.

Overview

Don’t be the last to know

Hearing loss can creep up so slowly that the person affected is often the last one to know. In fact, family members, friends or colleagues are likely to spot the problem before you do. They might say that you are not listening to them, or that the television is turned up far too loud. And they might wonder why you don’t answer the doorbell or telephone when they are trying to get a hold of you. The real problem is often not the condition itself – but that we do not recognize it and do something about it.
