Test Your Hearing on Your iPod or iPhone!

Unitron Hearing Limited has come out uHear, an iPod Touch or iPhone application that tests your hearing to determine if it is within normal range... or if you have a potential hearing loss. Especially in this age where young people expose their hearing to extremely loud noises, more and more people between the ages of 18 and 44 are now suffering from hearing loss, an estimated 6 million!!! In fact, the majority of people (65%) with hearing loss now are less than 65 years old.

uHear lets you assess:

• Hearing sensitivity (pure tone audiometry)
• Speech understanding in the presence of noise (speech discrimination score)
• Performance in common listening situations

If you do suspect a hearing loss, please seek the advice of your local ENT or audiologist!!!
