An individual listens to a stimuli and responds to the noise with or without earplugs. This type of fit test is very similar to a standard hearing test.
Physical sensors, e.g., microphones, are used to calculate the attenuation provided by the hearing protector. This technique provides a simple quantitative measure of how different the sound level is on the outside of the ear versus the inside of the ear.
•Supports both automated hearing testing and fit testing
•Intuitive mobile app, tablet, and headset
•Highly-attenuating headset allows you to test in more environments
•PAR is computed with REAT-based method
•A report is available on a mobile app and can be downloaded by CSV, PDF
•The results can be uploaded to a third-party electronic health database
For a group test, the administrator performs an introduction and the initial training to the group, providing the individuals with the same steps to follow as a single-person test. The administrator remains close by to answer questions or follow up with those who may need assistance.
