Abstract Objective: The aim of the present study was to provide thresholds data as a function of age for an otologically normal population in Spain, compared to the current ISO 7029 (2000) standard. Design: A prospective study in an otologically screened population. Study sample: Data was collected from 1175 otologically-normal persons aged between 5 and 90 years. Inclusion criteria involved those listed in ISO 389-1 (1998) and the 8253-1 (2010). Suitability for inclusion was evaluated through… 
Normative Hearing Threshold Levels in Koreans with Normal Tympanic Membranes and Estimated Prevalence of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss aggravated from the 30’s at all frequencies and men showed poorer hearing levels than women at high frequencies and norms at each frequency can be used as referent values when counseling patients complaining of hearing loss.
A baseline for the assessment of noise-induced hearing loss: contrasting thresholds-by-age for ontologically normal persons and typical persons
This document presents reviews of research studies that figured in the production of International Standard ISO 7029 dealing with screened populations of otologically normal persons and ordinary populations screened to exclude persons with occupational noise exposure and ear disorders.
Examination of Hearing in a Rheumatoid Arthritis Population: Role of Extended-High-Frequency Audiometry in the Diagnosis of Subclinical Involvement
This study demonstrated that an extended-high-frequency audiometry is a useful audiological test that must be performed within the diagnostic and follow-up testing of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, providing further insight into a disease-modifying treatment or a hearing loss preventive treatment.
Noise Damage Accelerates Auditory Aging and Tinnitus: A Canadian Population-Based Study
Noise damage was associated with a greater ARHL per age decades and the precipitation of both ARHL and tinnitus, and noise resulted in the elevation of the static compliance of the tympanic membrane throughout age.
Extended high frequency audiometry can diagnose sub-clinic involvement in a seemingly normal hearing systemic lupus erythematosus population
The results confirm the usefulness of extended high-frequency audiometry in the audiologic testing of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, enabling the possibility of modifying or applying a preventive treatment for a possible hearing loss.
Hearing threshold levels of Australian coal mine workers: a retrospective cross-sectional study of 64196 audiograms
Although HTLs were lower (better) in more recent years, the results showed clinically significant hearing loss for older workers, 45-60 years, and further research is required to determine if these notches represent true NIHL, and how the residual hearing of workers may be conserved.
Extended High-frequency Audiometry (9000–20000Hz). Usefulness in Audiological Diagnosis
The goal of the present paper was to highlight the importance of the extended high-frequency audiometry examination for it to become a standard tool in routine audiological examinations.

Audiometría con extensión en altas frecuencias (9.000-20.000 Hz). Utilidad en el diagnóstico audiológico
Se pretende asi destacar la importancia oficial de la exploracion audiometrica en altas frecuencias, con el fin of that se convierta en una herramienta habitual en the explorations audiologica.


Presbyacusis—hearing thresholds and the ISO 7029
The purpose of this study was to analyse the changes inpure-tone hearing thresholds with age, and found that the ISO 7029 normative a coefficient in females may beset too low compared to the authors' sample in the lower frequencies, leading to an underestimation of hearing thresholds in ON females.
Hearing threshold levels for an otologically unscreened, non-occupationally noise-exposed population in Sweden: Umbrales auditivos en una población no estudiada, sin exposición a ruido ocupacional en Suecia
The results are compared to other studies of otologically unscreened populations, and a new mathematical model of hearing threshold levels as a function of age is presented.
Extended high-frequency (9–20 kHz) audiometry reference thresholds in 645 healthy subjects
It would be possible to establish international standard thresholds at extended high-frequencies as a function of frequency and age when comparing different studies, and the hearing thresholds were found to be similar.

Hearing threshold levels at audiometric frequencies between 0.25 and 8 kHz were obtained by manual audiometry using 5-dB steps in adults aged 18-30 years, as part of a large random survey of hearing in the UK, with males having better hearing than females, but this difference was sensitive to screening criteria.
Screened and unscreened hearing threshold levels for the adult population: Results from the Nord-Trøndelag Hearing Loss Study Niveles de umbrales auditivos tamizados y no tamizados en la población adulta. Resultados del estudio Nord-TrøndeIag sobre hipoacusias
Screening for known ear-related disorders and diseases resulted in small effects on the mean hearing threshold levels, and there was a substantial effect when screening men above 40 years of age for a history of noise exposure.
Pure-Tone Threshold Description of an Elderly French Screened Population
Age- and sex-adjusted hearing thresholds could well be useful in the study of the impact of environmental and genetic factors on hearing loss in the elderly, especially in high frequencies, increased with age more for women than for men.
Prevalence of age-related hearing loss in Europe: a review
A systematic review of epidemiological data revealed more information gaps than information that would allow gaining a meaningful picture of prevalence of ARHL, and recommends using the WHO classification of hearing loss strictly and including standard audiometric measures in population-based health surveys.
Prevalence of Hearing Loss and Differences by Demographic Characteristics Among US Adults
Increases in hearing loss prevalence occurred earlier among participants with smoking, noise exposure, and cardiovascular risks, and the prevalence seems to be growing among the youngest age group.
Gender differences in a longitudinal study of age-associated hearing loss.
Results from the largest and longest longitudinal study reported to date of changes in pure-tone hearing thresholds in men and women screened for otological disorders and noise-induced hearing loss show gender differences in hearing levels and show that age-associated hearing loss occurs even in a group with relatively low-noise occupations.
Hearing sensitivity in adults screened for selected risk factors.
As a means of partially distinguishing age effects and other risk factors in presbyacusis, hearing thresholds for 56- to 65-year-old participants screened for exclusion of selected risk factors were
