How does the ear work?


Before someone can fully understand their hearing problems and possible solutions, it is first important to understand how sound enters the ear and then is processed by the brain. This information can be found on our "How does the ear work?" page.


Understanding Tinnitus and treatments

Many people suffer from a prolonged or intermittent "ringing"in their ears, even when there is no source of such a sound. This condition can be incredibly frustrating for those who live with tinnitus. If you would like more information about the cause and treatments of tinnitus, you can read more here.

Online hearing testsOnline Hearing Tests


We have provided two tests that will help identify if you have hearing loss. Our Tone Test helps identify high frequency hearing loss. Our self assessment test has been adapted from a UK study that provides an accurate assessment about whether hearing loss is affecting a person's life to the extent that they need to do something about.
