I wouldn't risk doing the electrocochleography test. It has loud bursts of sound for a long period. Only pure tone audiometry seems safe. Nov 4, 2022

      i wasted a whole decade with this dam crap, hopefully now that they FINALLY uncovered some new stuff about the auditory system SO we can get something in the near future jesus christ. but in the mean time try investing in hearing aids avoid loud stuff and rest as much as you can. we got this.

        Did it affect your tinnitus afterwards?

      From all the experts i contacted they said it cant effect hearing. Unfortunate the result aint good. As for many people here. The beeps can go from 80 to 110db. They say that should be save (time and exposure)

        Ah yea that test sucks. Had it 2 years ago. Still trying to habituate. I was nearly habituated after only 1 month until I had that test.

        Why test anyway. Your tinnitus will not go away, but sure can give it a place by identify the problem. But really, be carefull with loud tones. Would not go above 50 or 60db. Because it right in the ear (right?) It can cause panic or stress reaction.

        I'm going to recommend this to my ENT to not make the noises go above 60db. Just test my lower sensing between my ears. I care more about quiet ambience like wind blowing and hearing ocean waves instead of loud noises like traffic or talking. If they can't do this, it's a no go on Ecog.

      I had this test too, but after the third beep i said Stop. Because the last one was to loud. It only was in the right ear. But damn...i made me sweat and now i am stuck with a pure (wave) tone, which i hadnt..do you consider prednison or dexamethason?

      I wouldn't recommend it. It has ruined me. Probably about 30 seconds in each ear and can't remember how many beeps or how loud they were.

      Hi tweaker could you explain how long the acoustic reflex test take. How many loud tones do you hear and decibels?
