      I have normal hearing and borderline normal hearing in the higher frequencies on my audiogram but my DPOAE test showed little to no OAE's in 6-8 kHz in both ears.

      Does anyone else have no OAEs? Is this a predictor of what's to happen to my hearing?

      Hi @John53546
      I know this is an old post but it caught my attention. DPOAE and hearing are complex things. I met a lady who has no DPOAEs in all frequencies but normal hearing. No one really knows for sure what the results mean for your furure hearing. Im of the opinion that because everyones ear structure is unique, this can affect the results DPOAEs.
