||The fact that different methods are used to assess the attenuation of hearing protectors leads to difficulties in the interpretation of performance. The aim of this paper is to recall the various methods and indices currently used to evaluate sound perception attenuation as well as their limitations. It also presents the results of a study carried out at the European level which compared various attenuation indices obtained by using the ISO objective test method, the ISO subjective test method and the AFNOR subjective test method.
