hearZA® – a digits-in-noise hearing test – was successfully developed and validated as a self-test on a smartphone using any earphone or headphone. See published validation research papers (Potgieter et al. 2016; Potgieter et al. 2018)
The screening test analyses a person’s ability to perceive speech in noise. This is done by playing a series of digit triplets over white background noise. Based on the persons response, the app automatically generates a hearing score which indicates whether there may be a possible hearing problem. If the person fails, the app then refers the user to the closest audiologist (registered on our system), using geolocation.
Testing should be performed as soon as possible. It is never to early for a hearing test. Take not however that hearZA is only accurate for persons 16 years of age and older at this stage.
Annual check-ups are recommended. Track your profile on the hearZA App.
