Features of audiometers
Most modern audiometers are lightweight, portable and able to function without a sound booth, unlike older audiometers.
Some audiometers use bone conductor technology and put bone oscillators behind the patient’s ear, rather than headphones.
How audiometers work
Audiometers generally play recorded voices or pure tones. Many times the patients will hit a button or a switched on the device to acknowledge they’ve heard a sound, and the device will record this information. The patient may also directly inform the clinician that they’ve heard a sound. With this information, the audiometer software, or the clinician, will determine the patients hearing range in terms of both intensity (in decibels) and frequency (in hertz). This data is used to create an audiograph, which helps to illustrate the patient's specific hearing issues.
