I had one not so long ago!
It was OK though I do have some loss - I had it because i keep having to turn on the sub titles on my television as i cannot understand what they say.
However it seems to be shows where they have accents such as that one on Saturday night on the ABC where it is, or the main guy is scottish.

I do have some hearing loss however, and will have another test in about a year as they suggested I do nothing at this stage.

It would kill me. My hearing is painfully acute. Sometimes it is a real bugbear but I dare not complain as the males in my family have hereditary deafness and I think I got all of their shares :((

No never.

Perhaps if I ever notice a problem.
british - you are a bit young to have it.....question probably aimed at over 60's!
by Finy
Agreed.. however hubby has lost his hearing in one ear (operation gone wrong) so we are very aware of hearing in our house & how to protect it.

I havent had any difficulty hearing at all, and I should hope not at my age !!! I did receive a free hearing test somehow, so I took it, and there were no problems or deficiencies. One less thing to worry about !!!
Hahahahahahahaha!!! Somehow I put my answer as a reply to Finy. What a nong!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Rice is a nong, rice is a nong.....

Yes, I did, and everything was OK.
I am almost 57 and notice I am having increasing trouble understanding some voices on tv or young people who talk very fast. Young ones seem to run their words together more noticeably these days.
I haven't had a hearing test lately, but shall probably organise one within the next year. I think as a child we had our hearing tested at school. I have a recollection of having to press a button when we heard a sound through earphones.
yes that is still part of what they do for the hearing test-press the button! I am the same as you with the tv

Yes, I have it done each year,...so far so good!

I've had a couple. I think they're fun.
I had to have them as pre employment medicals
pre employment! gosh!!
by Finy
Yes, a lot of places these days ask you to undergo medicals (there's different sorts) to make sure they have a record of your health prior to employment in case you want to make a claim later. I believe the hearing test portion is in case you want to make an industrial deafness claim.
Yes, I have had a hearing test, it would be a while now tho, I should book for another one, as I am in my 50's, and where I work the fridges are very noisy, most customers complain about them!
Yes, my husband & I both had a hearing test done, at the same Audiologist in our next suburb. My husband turned out to be slightly deaf & was told he'd need 2 $3000 hearing aids in a couple of years. Those tests we had were about 6/7 years ago. He's still not deaf yet, & the hearing aids have become smaller over the years. I think I'm quite deaf in my right ear now, so will
have to have that checked out soon. A friends husband was just about deaf, as she always had to shout everything to him. He had the tests & they bought his hearing aids from...Costco! They work perfectly & are so small I don't even notice them, when I'm speaking to him!
by Miro
Yes, as a requirement for various job applications, over the years'.
Always passed, & did get the positions' various for which I'd applied, thank goodness!
No, but I should. I bet I'm a bit deaf in at least one ear. LOL.
