A§E concept

A§E (pronounced [eis] like the play card ace) is a set of psycho-acoustical tests to be used by the professional audiologist. It is conceived to test hearing impaired children and adults who typically have a conventional hearing aid, cochlear implant or other device. Whereas most tests are speech- and language independent and supraliminal (above-threshold), this type of test is not.

It is recommended to use A§E with a conventional audiometer. No additional equipment is required. A§E can also run with one of Audiqueen’s audio solutions, such as an amplifier and loudspeakers, SoundC or even with nothing else than a set of good quality multimedia loudspeakers.

All test results are presented in comprehensive tabular or graphical charts. They can be printed, saved and exported. Remarks can be added to each test item.

 If used with anything else than a certified audiometer, the output sound levels depend on the soundcard used. Very soft sounds may not be presented, and very loud presentation levels may cause distortion. With this configuration the audio solution does not qualify as an audiometer according to ISO standards.

A§E comprises 6 modules: see Solution Centre for details.

 

A§E self-tests allow test persons to perform the tests on their own by means of a simplified user interface. See A§E Self-test mode.
