Mimi is a mobile app that lets you check your hearing for free.
Mimi is an app designed to help you figure out how to improve your hearing. The main use of the app is its hearing test, which delivers tons of useful statistics about your hearing capabilities. Once you download the app, it’s easy to start the test right away. The app asks you to use headphones — working with specific pairs like the Apple Earbuds in order to deliver the most accurate results. As you hear a sound in either ear, you click a button corresponding with which ear you’re hearing the noise. This is similar to the test used by medical professionals, but it can be done from the comfort of your own home.
When you’re finished with the test, Mimi quickly delivers your results. The app gives you your hearing age range, and lets you analyze how you performed on the test with various specific frequencies. The company then recommends ways in which you can improve your hearing, or tailor your listening experiences in order to fit your needs (like being better able to hear either your music or the sounds around you while you have headphones in). It’s an important mission, and a valuable tool for everyone. Even if you don’t think there are any problems with your hearing or sound listening experiences, it’s useful to try out Mimi in order to get a better understanding of how it all works.
