New research project into hearing for the ages 37-50

Description

Typically hearing is tested by playing very quiet sounds to listeners. However, recently there has been evidence that it is possible to have subtle changes to your hearing that do not affect your ability to hear quiet sounds.

 

We are recruiting listeners ages 37-50 years with good hearing.

 

You will be asked to listen to a number of different sounds and make judgements about them such as what words you heard, or which of two sounds is louder. Full training will be given.

 

You will be recompensed for your time and effort and also to repay any travel costs. If all sessions of the research are completed you are eligible for further payment.
