The Hearing Test was created by audiology experts at Siemens to help you determine whether you have hearing impairment. This revolutionary application has been scientifically developed and carefully tested to ensure the most precise results possible. In addition, the test is completely independent of language, so you can use it reliably no matter what language you’re most comfortable with.
How the test works
The Siemens Hearing Test examines how well you can detect words in background noise. This is based on the knowledge that individuals with hearing loss have greater difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments, such as restaurants or subway stations.
During the test, you will hear nonsense words in a fluctuating background noise. Your task is to select the word you heard from several options displayed on your screen. Depending on your answers, the background noise will be adjusted. Unlike similar hearing tests, the volume setting is not crucial.
The test consists of nine test items per ear and determines how well you can understand speech in background noise. By comparing your results with the average score for normal listeners, the program might help you determine whether you have hearing impairment. However the results of the Siemens hearing test are not to be utilized as an official outcome for assessing levels of hearing loss. True hearing loss assessments can only be determined by a licensed hearing healthcare provider.

Minor bug fixes
Er I don't think so!
I could literally hear every single component very clearly and it told me I had a hearing problem in my right ear. So I tried again thinking it must be a blip and it told me it was the left ear. They seem to be trying to get you to a healthcare professional in the interest of getting some of your money. Used twice then deleted.
This really is rubbish and I can't believe Siemens have released it. One of the crucial things with a hearing test is to establish a baseline hearing level. 'Comfortable level' isn't a suitable way of doing that. The final evaluation seems to hinge on whether you can distinguish 'assa' from 'asha' and that's simply not good enough. Apple, please remove it from the App Store.
So first time it thinks I have hearing loss in my right ear, second time it's my left ear and third time it's neither ear!! I've got no faith in this test. Might work if you're very deaf but then you'd probably know...
