Familiar Sounds Audiogram  –  [Click here to download]

An audiogram is a graph that shows the softest sounds a person can hear at different pitches or frequencies. An “O” often is used to represent responses for the right ear and an “X” is used to represent responses for the left ear. The closer the marks are to the top of the graph, the softer the sounds that can be heard. The audiogram attached indicates the different degrees of hearing loss using familiar sounds and their relative frequencies.

The pitches shown in the light purple area on the audiogram are those most important for hearing and understanding conversation. Each sound we hear when someone speaks has a different pitch and loudness. For example, the “s” sound is high in pitch and quiet. The “o” sound is low in pitch and louder. The audiogram in the following link shows the range of pitch and loudness for most speech sounds.
