Reviews

Reviewer: Action on Hearing Loss, UK
Review: “Measures a person’s ability to hear someone speaking when there is background noise, similar to being in a crowded room. The app is free to download, and is a convenient way for people to check their hearing is within the normal range. Action on Hearing Loss Chief Executive, Jackie Ballard, said: “This is a fantastic new way to encourage people to value their hearing, and check it regularly. It offers quick results, and confidential advice from anywhere with a decent phone signal”.”
