How it works

Who should apply?

We are designing our hearing training for anyone experiencing age-related-hearing-loss and that affects different people at different times. To capture a broad range of needs we are looking to build a diverse group of testers of all ages, genders and backgrounds with mild, moderate or severe hearing loss. We are particularly keen to work with people aged 45-65years. So if you are starting to find it hard to understand people in busy environments like bars and cafes, have noticed a deterioration in your hearing or have had issues for a while please do sign up.

What will it involve?

We will likely ask for feedback on a monthly basis but it could be bi-weekly during intense development. We know you won’t be available every time and that is ok, although there will be rewards for our best testers!

Being a tester will involve the following;

  1. Reviewing our work in progress - eg concept drawings, videos & design demos 

  2. Using our beta app regularly (eg 2-3 times  a week before we launch to the public)

  3. Sending us feedback via email, survey or sometimes recorded video

  4. Assessing your hearing occasionally

  5. Optionally attending focus groups and discussions on video call

  6. Optionally volunteering for lab testing with out scientific partners

We will aim to try to keep the time needed for feedback requests and survey responses to no more than 15 minutes but may occasionally take longer and we will aim to give 1 week’s notice where we can. We will send clear instructions and you can contact us anytime if you need to.
