We developed the Speech Perception Test as a better alternative to the outdated pure tone ‘beep’ test still commonly used today. By listening to a randomised list of 50 phonemically balanced English words and typing what you hear in the box provided, we are able to generate an accurate report on the real world speech sounds you are able to hear. We measure the words you miss against the speech features that make up each word, which gives us the information needed to set up your hearing aids, and tells you how much difficulty you have with the different sounds of speech.

The Speech Perception Test tells you what you can and can’t hear. It doesn’t tell you why. It’s not a substitute for medical advice.
