Home Audiometer

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This application lets you use your machine to perform hearing tests, but you'll spend more time than you'd like on its setup. Home Audiometer's simple interface requires you to test your hardware's compatibility with the application and to calibrate your hardware before beginning any test, so a visit to the program's considerable help file is recommended. You'll need an appropriate sound card and a joystick, although you can use Ctrl-Key instead of a joystick. Grab a headset too. After calibration, we conducted the hearing test, which is graphically presented via an audiogram for both ears. Unfortunately, you can't save the test results for record-keeping purposes and you won't get a summary report. Those who want some basic information on their hearing may want to try Home Audiometer, but in no way should this time-consuming application be used as a substitute for a visit to a health professional.

Developer's Description

Home Audiometer gives a very good indication if there is a hearing problem or not and how severe it might be and is much more accurate than other 'Do-it-yourself' tests with a CD or no means of calibration. Due to the nature of the calibration any home test cannot be as accurate as a professional hearing test at an ear clinic. Home Audiometer accuracy is within about 10 dB of the true hearing level, compared to around 5dB of a professional test. This is over a total measurable hearing range of 70dB.

Features include: Bksy Test procedure to ISO standards; Graphical display of results; System is calibrated by ear without external hardware; And data analysis and categorization. Version 1.9 has small improvement in the user interface.
