Pure Tone Audiometry Hearing Assessment

The aim of pure tone audiometry is to establish hearing threshold sensitivity across the range of audible frequencies important for communication. Threshold sensitivity is usually measured for a series of discrete sinusoids or pure tones.

The object of pure tone audiometry is to determine the lowest intensity of such a pure-tone signal that the listener can “just barely hear”. This is a key hearing test used to determine the degree, type and configuration of your hearing loss.
