Audiometer

Last Wednesday (17.10.2018) we obtained our first audiometer. With this audiometer we are able to conduct both pure-tone audiometry up to 12.5 kHz and basic speech intelligibility tests. The tests may be perfomed for either air/bone conduction or in the free field. Now we can analyze the hearing capabilities of our test subjects, which will help us when performing subjective tests.
