Abstract Standard in several parts on the reference zero for the calibration of audiometric equipment. This part, which pertains to the reference threshold of hearing under free-field and diffuse-field listening conditions, specifies a reference threshold of hearing for the calibration of audiometric equipment used under specific conditions. Main contents: scope; normative references; definitions (threshold of hearing; otologically normal person; reference threshold of hearing; diffuse sound field); specification. Tables and two informative annexes.
