Traditional audiometer headphones are poor and made worse by use of audio cups

Subjective variance of calibrated audiometer systems

DT770’s out perform traditional headphones and are best used with PVC earcups

Insertion loss of DT770 and different ear cup types

Traditional audiometer calibration methods are flawed leading to significant real world measurement uncertainty

Amplitude variation in calibrated audiometer systems

Inconsistencies in an individual’s responses create variances in audiometric data

Who we are

Anybody who has had their hearing tested recently will probably recognise that nothing has changed for a long time. Audiometers (the equipment used to measure hearing) routinely use headphones that were first used by Spitfire Pilots in the Second World War, they are calibrated once a year to British Standards first written long before computers were in common use and the process relies on one to one interaction between the person being tested and the operator which acts as a barrier to people having a test because it is expensive for the provider and time consuming and inconvenient for the person being tested.

Audiology-Online Ltd was formed to bring audiometry up to date with the intention of improving accessibility and driving down costs. It has developed a test with the help of Southampton Solent University which will enable people to take a test (whether it is for, NHS triage, HSE Noise at Work or hearing screening) at a time that suits them.

Mark Ashmore RHAD, MIOA - Founder

The founder of Audiology-Online, Mark has been testing peoples hearing for over twenty years. He is a Registered Hearing Aid Dispenser and a Member of the Institute of Acoustics. He is passionate about improving the quality of the current test as well as doing all he can to improve access and convenience in the UK and abroad. Hearing loss is the most globally prevalent disability and he believes it is incongruous that a seventy year old test prevails despite an avalanche of technological development in the intervening years.
