Re: sounds too loud
Over-recruitment is the term used when the loudness growth curve for someone
with sensorineural hearing loss exceeds the loudness growth curve of a
normal-hearing listener at high levels, i.e., high-level sounds are
perceived as louder to that subject than they are to normal-hearing people.
Their recruiting loudness growth curve "overshoots" the normal one,
indicating that the subject has hyperacousis.
