Hearing thresholds of 10 subjects were measured under sound field and earphone conditions using warble tones of frequencies 0.25 kHz, 0.5 kHz, 1 kHz, 1.5 kHz, 2 kHz, 3 kHz, 4 kHz and 6 kHz. Measurements were made on two successive days for each condition at each frequency. The test-retest reliability was found to be equivalent for the two conditions. It was concluded that sound field threshold measurements for frequency specific stimuli are just as reliable as measurements under earphones provided an appropriate technique is used.
