Hello Craig, I have not found any acceptable portable audiometers, and Shoebox won't work for my company as the ambient noise is over 50dB, with no way of reducing this without having to make a sound proof room, so using a sound booth would be the next best option.

Good afternoon everyone,


I continue to look for the “holy grail” of audiometric equipment, particularly hoping for a portable device (such as Oscilla or Shoebox) that produces acceptable results in alignment with OSHA’s Hearing Conservation standard.


Can anyone please enlighten me as to whether there may be an acceptable portable audiometer, instead of relying solely on a hearing test booth?


Thank you, and I look forward to this conversation!
