Hearing tests evaluate one's hearing ability. In a hearing test, quiet and loud sounds of different pitches are played in headphones worn by the person. These sounds are played in both ears and then in a single ear at a time. Sometimes some intense dialog-rich sounds are played, and the person is asked to repeat those words or sentences.
