Abstract:

Audiograms were obtain from chinchillas using conventional pure tone stimuli and using 13 octave bands of noise as stimuli. The average hearing threshold levels in dB SPL were found to be comparable. The audiograms determined using the 13 octave bands of noise were slightly more reliable lower test-retest variability.
