      Tinnitus Since:
      Tinnitus sufferers could have normal pure tone audiograms but how many T sufferers have absent DPOAE's ?

      It seems vast majority of chronic T sufferers have absent DPOAES in the 6-8KZ frequencies.

      DPOAE might be a good test to consider.

      Tinnitus Since:
      distortion otacoustic emission test that most ENTS should analyze.

      i'd be curious to see some DPOAE test results from those who can't figure out how they ended up with T.
