Measuring auditory sensitivity over the age Conference Paper uri icon


  • This study consisted in Lhe developrnent af ao audiogram software program using the soundboard af lhe computer and with the audiogram measurc the sensitivity 10Sl over lhe age. The audiogrum tests \Vere perfonned to 35 subjects belonging to the femule and mate gender, aged bctween 10 and 88 years. Some af lhe subjects with more advanced age had hearing problems over the course af age. However, none af lhem was carrying any type of hearing aid. Fig 1 shows lhe comparison of the average sensitivity over the decades af age. As conclusion it can be said that the developed audiogram has sensibility enough to measure the human ear sensitivity aver the audible range of frequencies. As a result of the perfonned test to subjects, as expected, lhe 10st of sensitivity over the age was confinned and measured.
