Test and re-test high-frequency (10-20 kHz) thresholds were obtained for 200 ears of 100 normally hearing (0.25-8 kHz) young adults (18-28 years old) using a Beltone 2000 audiometer and Sennheiser HD 250 earphones referenced to sound pressure levels developed in a Bruel and Kjaer flat-plate coupler. Normative high-frequency thresholds could not be recommended for clinical use due to the very large intersubject threshold variability. This occurred even though test versus re-test thresholds were… CONTINUE READING
