      Has anyone here done the highest frequencies DPOAE test who has normal hearing range on your audiology report? The higher frequency DPOAE test will go to 8000, not the norm 4000 they usually do.

      If so what were your results with it?

      Mine were all PASS up to 6000 and 8000 which was REFER. This is not the only sign of hearing loss though. They cross check that from word recognition also which I passed perfectly. The OAE does show that I will ultimately have some hearing loss as I age.

      I did ask about the accuracy on the higher frequency DPOAE. The audiologist did say it's not what they usually use in clinical decision making 6000 and above.
