What is it about?
We developed a self-test smartphone app intended to allow anyone to perform a pure-tone hearing test, typically at home. The app requires access to moderately quiet room, an iPhone and a pair of Apple EarPods. We compare the results of our application with clinical audiometry in an audiometric booth; We also analyze the test-retest reliability for several hundreds of users who took the test at home.
