audiometer

 [aw″de-om´ĕ-ter]
an apparatus used in audiometry for testing the hearing.

au·di·om·e·ter

(aw'dē-om'ĕ-ter),
An electronic device used to measure hearing thresholds for pure tones, modulated tones, speech, and other acoustic stimuli.
[audio- + G. metron, measure]

audiometer

[ô′dē·om′ətər]
Etymology: L, audire + Gk, metron, measure
an electronic device for testing hearing. Earphones are placed over the ears (air-conduction testing), or a bone vibrator is placed on the mastoid (bone conduction testing). Hearing is tested by using tones from very low to very high frequencies at various decibels of intensity. The patient signals when a tone is heard, and the lowest level at which the patient hears is noted on an audiogram.

au·di·om·e·ter

(aw'dē-om'ĕ-tĕr)
An electrical instrument for measuring the threshold of hearing for pure tones of frequencies generally varying from 128-8000 Hz (recorded in decibels).
[L. audio, to hear + G. metron, measure]

audiometer

An instrument for measuring the lowest levels at which pure tones can be heard at each of a range of frequencies, either by air or by bone conduction. The results are recorded as an AUDIOGRAM.

au·di·om·e·ter

(aw'dē-om'ĕ-tĕr)
Electronic device used to measure hearing thresholds for pure tones, modulated tones, speech, and other acoustic stimuli.
[L. audio, to hear + G. metron, measure]

audiometer (ôdēom´ətər),

n a device for testing hearing; calibrated to register hearing loss in terms of decibels.

audiometer

instrument used to measure the quality of a patient's hearing.

As an analogy, a standard hearing test does not directly measure the "true" hearing level but indirectly measures the patient's subjective perception of what he/she hears as the tones are generated by the audiometer.
