- Hi there, before you start exploring our over-the-counter hearing aids, we suggest that you complete our online hearing assessment. It uses speech audiometry to determine your ability to distinguish speech in loud environments such as restaurants, bars, and sporting events. To get started, locate the hearing assessment on Bestbuy.com. You'll be asked a few questions such as your age and gender. We ask this because hearing loss levels vary by age and your ability to distinguish frequency can vary by gender. You'll need to use a pair of headphones for the assessment. They can be in the ear, over the ear, wired or wireless but you'll need them to help you block out any noise in the room you're in. Set your volume level somewhere near the middle of your volume range. Setting the level too high or too low may skew your results. Next, the assessment will have you listen to a series of 23 different spoken numbers. Your job will be to identify those numbers and enter them in. If you can't hear the digits, no worries. Just take your best guess. Once completed, your results will be either no hearing loss, mild to moderate hearing loss or severe hearing loss. No hearing loss, nice job. You still might wanna explore ear protection or PSAP's, personal sound amplification products to keep your sharp hearing intact. Mild to moderate hearing loss. If you're 18 or older, you can explore our selection of over-the-counter hearing aids to find the right solution for you. If your result is severe hearing loss, we recommend that you see an audiologist to discuss your options and next steps.
