What is Masking in Audiology?

Masking in audiology ensures accurate and ear-specific results from Pure-Tone Audiometry Testing.  In other words, clinical masking prevents the non-test ear from assisting the test ear. How can this occur? The answer comes down to understanding cross-hearing and interaural attenuation.

Interaural attenuation is the amount a sound is diminished as it travels from the test ear to the contralateral ear (the non-test ear). When a sound exceeds interaural attenuation, cross hearing can occur. This is when the contralateral ear can detect a stimuli presented to the opposite ear.
