Sixty young subjects in the 15-23 age range, selected on the basis of a questionnaire on the degree of exposure to amplified music, underwent 'high resolution' (4 min per octave) sweep-frequency Békésy tracking audiometry, and measurement of auditory frequency resolution at 4 kHz using the psychophysical comb-filtered noise masking technique. The more exposed groups had 10-15% wider bandwidths than the least exposed, and this difference achieved significance when subjects having audiometric… CONTINUE READING
