Are MP3s Appropriate for Auditory Testing?

Auditec, Inc. is proud to be a small business with a long history. We have been serving professionals with auditory test materials in a variety of formats since 1972.

Long before the Sony Walkman was invented, Auditec sold its auditory test recordings on reels.

Next, Auditec sold auditory test materials on cassette tapes. Believe it or not, we still get requests for this discontinued format. At one point in time, Auditec even made its recordings available on digital audio tapes (DATs).

cUSTOM

Now, Auditec provides quality audio recordings on compact discs. Customers can combine multiple recordings to one disc and play it using their CD player or computer.

MP3s are a convenient next step for professionals who want to use portable equipment that does not take up a lot of space like iPods, iPads, and MP3 players. (This article was edited on March 23, 2017 to include recent research by Jennifer M. Brace and Robert W. Keith.) Recent research has concluded normal listeners tested using the mp3 audio files of speech discrimination tests produce the same valid results as when tested using the wav audio files on compact discs.

Where Can I Find……

Auditec offers a wide selection of products including word recognition tests (in English, Spanish, and French), auditory processing tests, and auditory training programs. We sell 80 tests in over 200 variations. Some of our most popular recordings are the NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II, Spanish Auditory Test CD, and Constraint Induced Auditory Therapy (CIAT).

 

Auditec is always in search of additional tests for our catalog. If you have a test that is recorded, researched, and ready to sell, email auditecinfo@auditec.com for more information on how to get your test into the hands of other audiologists by designating Auditec, Inc. as your primary test manufacturer and distributor.

Echoes on Echoes©

Echoes on Echoes© is considered a good test for the non-verbal or difficult to test. It consists of various frequencies, steady and changing. They were frequency-modulated, interrupted and reverberated between tracks at various rates and degrees. Often the signal appears to move from one transducer to the other (when presented dichotically, or through stereo speakers).

The purpose is to provide novel stimuli for attracting attention. The recording has been employed successfully to estimate hearing levels of severely mentally retarded individuals who had resisted more conventional efforts to ascertain hearing function. It is most effective when presented through a two-channel speaker system.

Hearing Loss Simulation©

The Hearing Loss Simulation© attempts to demonstrate what a hearing loss might sound like to the hearing impaired. It is in two main parts; part one demonstrates a flat “conductive” loss down to 40 dB in 10 dB steps (40 dB of attenuation), and part two simulates high frequency losses. The latter section employs both male and female talkers in quiet and in noise. 25 The Hearing Loss Simulation demonstration consists of sharp (48 dB/oct) low-pass filters at 2000, 1000 and 500 Hz, illustrating precipitous high frequency losses. Brief introductions precede each section.
