Abstract: OBJETIVO: Determinar a eficácia dos fones de inserção em casos de suspeita de colabamento de meato acústico externo. MÉTODOS: Vinte e um idosos com intervalo aéreo-ósseo superior a 10 dBNA nas frequências de 3 kHz e/ou 4 kHz foram submetidos à anamne se, audiometria tonal liminar, logoaudiometria e imitanciometria. A audiometria tonal e a logoaudiometria foram realizadas com os fones supra-aurais e com fones de inserção. RESULTADOS: Verificou-se que os limiares auditivos por via aérea obtidos com os fones de i… Show more

“…Despite the supra-aural earphones be considered standard in the realization of pure tone audiometry, it observed that it produced higher test-retest variability when compared to the insertion earphones (Tables 1 and 2). In comparison of a transducer with the other it has been found that, both in the first and in the second test, responses were shown to be sometimes similar, sometimes favoring one or the other transducer, showing in general higher responses for insertion earphones (Tables 3 and 4), not agreeing with recent studies that have shown that the insertion receiver provides best hearing thresholds, both at low frequencies as in the high when compared to obtaining thresholds with supra-aural earphones (17,18) . In general, it was observed that despite the insertion earphones have produced higher responses, it produced less variability between tests and showed better performance at low frequencies.…”

“…For this reason, the SRT showed similar values in the comparison between the transducers, since that for both transducers the SRT was compatible with the audiometry. Some authors believe that the insert earphone promotes greater attenuation of ambient noise, resulting in improvement of speech recognition [12][13][14] .…”

“…This finding may be due to the use of foam plugs which, when inserted deeply, prevent the collapse of the external auditory canal, which may compromise the attainment of thresholds by air, especially in elderly individuals 13 . Furthermore, factors such as the size and geometry of the external auditory canal of men…”

“…Our results also showed that headphone use during the hearing examination may improve the diagnostic accuracy of smartphone-based audiometry. Earphones are a required component in standard audiometry because they prevent the collapse of the external ear canal and reduce the level of ambient noise [65][66][67]. However, if the participant does not insert the earphone correctly in the automated examination, it could be a problem.…”
