Free hearing test is a free and easy to use facility for checking hearing by anyone with access to the internet, anywhere in the world. Ideally you will have a pair of headphones or earphones and a quiet room. On completion of the 5 minute hearing check, the results in the form of a short report are emailed to the user. By comparing the readings over time, the user is able to chart their hearing trend. This facility is also beneficial to businesses whose workers are exposed to noise as a consequence of their work, as a ''first warning'', sign that further steps may need to be taken.
