Electroacoustics – Measurement of real-ear acoustical performance characteristics of hearing aids
|Publication Date:||1 November 2015|
|ICS Code (Electroacoustics):||17.140.50|
This International Standard gives recommendations and requirements for the measurement and estimation of the real-ear acoustical performance characteristics of air-conduction hearing aids and for the measurement of certain acoustic properties of the ear related to the application of hearing aids.
Measurements of real-ear acoustical characteristics of hearing aids which apply non-linear or analytical processing techniques are valid only for the test signals used and conditions employed.
The purpose of this standard is to ensure that measurements of real-ear acoustical performance characteristics of a given hearing aid on a given human ear can be replicated in other locations with other test equipment.
