This product consists of a recording of Spondees with a recording of the NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II.
The Spondees is a speech threshold (speech reception threshold-SRT) recording. The Spondees, also known as CID W-1, are two-syllable words with equal stress on each syllable, which are employed to obtain thresholds for speech. There are two randomizations of 36 spondaic words spoken without a carrier phrase for adults. The median speech reception threshold (SRT) for normal listeners is 20 dB SPL (0dBHL). Administration of the Spondees will take approximately seven minutes.
The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II allows the audiologist to reduce the time of testing in cases where the patient has essentially normal word recognition ability. It is the result of recent research on our original recording by Raymond Hurley and Janet Sells. This is a recording of a male talker. The lists are ordered from the most difficult to the easiest. With normal listeners the test can often be terminated after the first 10 words. This is not a half list; however, there is a provision for termination of the test after 25 words in addition to after the first 10 words.
