Simple Hearing Loss Test

  • Do you…
  • Have difficulty understanding what is being said, unless you are directly facing the speaker?
  • Find yourself complaining that people are mumbling or slurring their words?
  • Continually ask people to repeat words or phrases, though they feel they’re speaking loud enough?
  • Prefer the TV or radio louder than others do?
  • Have difficulty understanding conversation within a group of people?
  • Avoid group meetings, social occasions, public facilities, or family gatherings where listening may be difficult?
  • Have trouble hearing at the movies, house or worship, concert halls, or at other public gatherings – especially where sound sources are at a distance?
  • Have ringing in the ears or other head noises? (hissing, buzzing, crickets, etc). Tinnitus is often a symptom of hearing loss, but not always.
  • If you answered “yes” to at least two of these questions, you may have a hearing loss. Contact us today at (330) 492-2844 to schedule a hearing evaluation.
