This hearing loss simulator is one of the best available online allowing a user to mimic different types of hearing loss by adjusting the decibel hearing loss for each frequency measured on a standard hearing test. Using headphones, the user can even create different hearing loss patterns between ears, or simply play the average hearing loss to both ears. Please note that this hearing loss simulator is an improved and online version of the CDC's HLSim NIOSH Simulator program.
