SHOEBOX launches easy-to-use, mobile-friendly online hearing screening test

OTTAWA, ONTARIO — SHOEBOX® Ltd. announced today that it has launched a new online hearing screening test. SHOEBOX Online uses “patented Dynamic Range technology to produce an effective screening solution for web-based testing”. 

SHOEBOX Online enables participants to remotely assess their hearing from any device – mobile phone, tablet, or laptop – and with headphones they already own. The test will sort participants into categories based on their hearing ability – good, hearing loss or significant hearing loss. SHOEBOX Online is a tool that can assist with qualifying, prioritizing and assessing participants’ hearing health.
