Re: children's hearing curve?

It is quite illuminating for me, because I didn't think about the hearing curve in terms of OAE by far - it is not a direct measurement of the hearing response but surely an evidence for the changing resonance over ages. Thanks a lot!

Dear Hiroko and list,

there are plenty of data on ear canal resonance in neonates, infants, children of various ages, and adults. Not long ago I reviewed some of this material:

Subject: children's hearing curve?

Dear List,

I'm asking this question out of curiosity - according to Fletcher- Munson curve, human hearing is most sensitive around 3khz, which, as I know of, is delivered by the length of ear canal. I guess that infants have shorter ear canals, then possibly they have different peak frequency of sensitivity... maybe the peak frequency changes while growing up... Have you seen such measurements? I'd love to see the curve.
