Acoustics - Statistical distribution of hearing thresholds related to age and gender (ISO 7029:2017/DAM 1:2023); German version EN ISO 7029:2017/prA1:2023

Abstract

ISO 7029:2017 is the adoption of hearing thresholds with regard to the ageing society. The thresholds will be differentiated between men and women and serving as a base for manufacturer of hearing aids. This document provides descriptive statistics of the hearing threshold deviation for populations of otologically normal persons of various ages under monaural earphone listening conditions. For populations between the age limits of 18 to 80 years and for the range of audiometric frequencies from 125 Hz to 8 000 Hz it specifies the expected median value of hearing thresholds given relative to the median hearing threshold at the age of 18 years as well as the expected statistical distribution above and below the median value. The expected median values at audiometric frequencies from 9 000 Hz to 12 500 Hz for individuals between the age of 22 years to 80 years are also provided.
