How to Test your Headphones

While your video conferencing applications might have built-in audio testers, these can sometimes be unreliable. themictest offers a free online tool that lets you quickly test both your webcam and microphone to ensure everything is working properly. Here’s how to use the themictest online audio test:

Step 1: Allow Headphone Access

  1. Visit the themictest online webcam test tool by going to online webcam test tool ON themictest (this tool also tests your microphone).
  2. When prompted by your browser, click “Allow” to grant themictest access to your headphone. This is usually a pop-up near the address bar at the top of your screen (on PC) or requires scrolling up (on mobile).
  3. If your browser blocks pop-ups, you might not see the prompt to grant access to your speakers or microphone.

Step 2: Test Your Headphone

  1. Click on the left or the right Headphone icon to Test Audio of your device.
  2. If you hear an audio from the speakers of your headphone or sound device, the test is successful.
Step 3: Observe the Audio Input

If the headphone test is successful, you should hear a clear audio tone coming through the speakers of your headphones (or whichever side you clicked on).

Step 4: Additional Testing (Optional)

    • Play music or a video to test how your headphones sound with a broader range of audio.
  • Adjust the volume controls on both your device and your headphones to achieve a comfortable listening level.
