What is an audiometric room?
Primarily designed for clinical applications in hospitals and universities, an audiometric room is a combination of an exam room and a control room. It provides a high degree of isolation on both sides of the double-glazed, laminated safety glass for the audiologist and for the patient.
Puretone and Sound Field (free field) audiometric practices are used to assess the hearing/hearing loss of a patient. Once a hearing loss has been identified in a patient, clinical investigations begin.
What are the conditions for good acoustics?
Good conditions for good acoustics are very much depending on the need of the user. Within audiology, good acoustics is defined by the ISO 8253-1 standard, which defines the ambient sound pressure levels for an audiometric test room.
