Test Your Hearing runs two simple tests to determine your hearing health
From now on you can test your hearing without visiting the doctor. Test Your Hearing provides two test you can perform to determine if your hearing is as good as you think.
First test is Frequency Range, in other words, how low you can hear. Warbled tones are played softly at first and you will have the chance to control the volume. The volume level is the keystone of this test, so don't turn it up if you can already hear the tone. Mark whether you can hear or can't hear the tone. Once the 25 tones of the test are completed you'll get your highest and lowest audible frequencies, your "hearing age" and a fun animal that represents your hearing abilities.
Second test is Frequency Differentiation. It puts to test your ability to hear tones changes (pitch). If you can hear a difference in frequency, there's mark it. Otherwise, turn up the volume and try again. When this test is completed, the app displays the frequencies you can differentiate over the hearing spectrum and suggests you an instrument based on your answers. The one that best fit your hearing abilities.
Both tests include "fakes", in other words, empty tones. That's just to check you aren't cheating. If there are too many "I can hear it" on those empty tones, the app won't be able to display accurate results.
According to developers, more tests are coming soon. The app is quality complete and reliable so far. It needs some design revamping though. Besides, an app worth to check out.
A frequency range test presents 25 tones, and asks whether you can hear them. From this, it tells you your highest and lowest audible frequencies, your "hearing age", and a fun animal that represents your hearing abilities.
A frequency differentiation test presents 25 tone pairs, and asks if you can hear a difference. The results tell you what frequencies you can differentiate over the hearing spectrum and suggests an instrument based on your answers.
Please take care with this application by reading instructions as they are presented. When the test is done, read about the results, and try each ear individually!

I hope it's somewhat accurate it put me at my actual age...
Good procedure. Appears to give a good indication of your hearing ability if you have good earPhones. UI could be improved.
Simply does not work on Kobo Arc tablet. No tones heard and buttons don't seem to do anything. Another app worked fine.
Won't even let me click whether I've heard the sound or not.
Enjoyed, then started worrying about myself
