Evaluation of Hearing Threshold Using a New Response Method for Remote Hearing Profile Detection

Document Thumbnail

With the rapid technological growth and availability of IOT devices, hearing loss can happen at an accelerated rate and becomes an increasing problem. The current hearing threshold curves, defined in the ISO 389-7 standard, do not take this into account and require a revision. This Engineering Brief will present the results of an ongoing hearing loss study using a novel remote hearing threshold detection method and evaluate its effectiveness. It is a modification of Bekesy's tracking method that is performed remotely on mobile devices to collect results on a large scale and simplify the measurement process. The results showed that the proposed method is effective for hearing loss detection and indicated that new hearing threshold curves can be defined. As the test is being actively distributed, by the time of publication it is expected to have sufficient subject size to represent the general population.
