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.

What's New in Version 2.0.4
Minor bug fixes
I don't have a hearing loss that requires any action, yet this app shows me below average and suggests otherwise. I suspect that there are too many variables, especially headphone quality that an uncalibrated setup like this cannot account for. The most telltale "feature" of this app was that a large portion is dedicated to putting you in contact with people selling hearing aids. This always leaves me wondering if the real motive is sales or accuracy.
This is a great app, but I only hear a beep and some radiostatic. I could hear the ward, but one word was too hard to understand.
Worked flawlessly on iPad 3. Great test that aims user at picking out human voice frequencies in noisy environments. The varying white noise background is a good frequency sweep to test against.
