Hearing Test

The Mimi Hearing Test App offers a Pure Tone Threshold (PTT) test. The Pure Tone Threshold (PTT) test is a type of hearing test that uses an automated procedure modeled after the Békésy tracking method. This makes it especially suitable for app-based mobile hearing tests.

The Masked Threshold (MT) test will no longer be available in the app. If you have previously taken an MT test, you can continue to access your Mimi data by logging into your Mimi account online.

Hearing Test Results

After taking the hearing test you will receive personalized hearing test results:

  • Hearing Loss Grade: You will receive one of 5 hearing loss grades: No hearing loss / Slight hearing loss / Mild hearing loss / Moderate hearing loss / Severe hearing loss. This grade is defined by the better performing ear. This is because with asymmetric hearing, found in some individuals, the ‘better ear’ usually compensates for the other in everyday listening.
  • Hearing Number: Your Hearing Number is a metric that can help you better understand your hearing and how it changes over time.
  • Hearing Capacity: The Hearing Capacity, ranging from 0 to 100%, indicates hearing ability for each ear.  
  • Hearing Sensitivity (only available in certain regions*): The graph represents how well you hear across different frequencies.

Supported Headphones

All headphones vary, and the sound output of your headphones affects test results. For the supported headphones, Mimi applies the required corrections to your hearing test data to ensure consistent and accurate test results across devices. If your headphones aren’t listed, it means our team hasn’t collected the necessary data yet to make them available for the test. You can still take the hearing test using headphones not on the list, but this may impact accuracy.

Changes to CE certification

The Mimi Hearing Test is no longer a CE-certified medical product (class 1) – based on the European Union’s regulatory framework. While the Mimi Hearing Test may no longer hold its CE certification, we remain committed to providing you with a high-quality and user-friendly hearing test experience. The changes to the medical certification of our Mimi Hearing Test comes alongside these significant updates to our Mimi Hearing Test app, to enhance your experience and provide even better insights into your hearing health.

What’s next for the app?

Moving forward we will be focusing our development efforts on enhancing our cutting-edge PTT Hearing Test, now available exclusively on the iOS Mimi Hearing Test App. By focusing on the iOS platform in the immediate future, we can channel our efforts towards new features and advancements for our iOS Hearing Test App users. We will continue to develop and introduce state-of-the-art testing methodologies and accuracy, ensuring you receive reliable hearing test results, all from the comfort of your home. 

Our mission also extends beyond convenience; we aim to break barriers to hearing healthcare. Through our app, we aim to empower individuals facing geographical, mobility, or other constraints to access vital hearing assessments with ease. We’re confident that the latest updates to the app will enhance your journey towards better hearing and wellbeing.
