Re: Auditory test


Testing conducted by audiologists may use a wide variety of stimuli including, pure tones, single words in quiet, narrow band noise, broad band noise, sentences in quiet, sentences in noise, frequency modulated tones, clicks, tone pips...it all depends on the clinical questions being asked.

Dear Audiologists,

I went to the audiologist two weeks ago and the test i went through was
made of "pure tones" and "single words". My sister has a tinnitus and
the same test is presented to her when she visits the audiologist. Now
my question is : Do you make use of other sounds than pure tones and
single words, is there an alternative. And if not why?

Thanks you very much for answering my question.
