Conventional Audiometry

A conventional audiometry determines the faintest tones a child can hear at frequencies from low to high. Ear phones, sound booths and calibrated speakers are ways this audiometry can be conducted. During a conventional audiometry, a child raises their hand or provides a verbal response upon hearing a tone. Their ability to hear through numerous frequencies are measured. If a hearing loss is detected, further testing is done to determine the type of hearing loss. This is typically used with children of ages 5 and older.
