Abstract : Seven subjects with normal hearing were tested by three audiometric procedures: manual, Bekesy type, and pulse count. Six frequencies were tested for each ear on five different days. The mean thresholds measured by these technics were compared. No clinically significant differences were found between threshold measures made by any of the three procedures. (Author)
