Air-(ac) and bone-conduction (bc) thresholds were determined for 96 subjects in the age range 16-30 years. The bc tests were carried out using a B-71 vibrator applied to left and right mastoid under three conditions at the contralateral ear: unoccluded, masked at 25 dB and at 40 dB sensation level; ac audiometry and masking noise used a TDH-39 earphone. By a systematic process of otological classification of the subjects, the bc threshold for 'normal hearing' could be estimated with an… CONTINUE READING
