      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Several causes
      I was wondering why standard audiometric tests and research is not carried out in complex hearing environments. I mean, the real world is not a sound-proofed, isolated, audiometric cabin, there are competing and overlapping sounds everywhere, background noise etc...

      So why researchers do not start investigating from the basis of real world hearing conditions, in a complex hearing environment?

      I mean... are results that always refer to audiometric cabin test conditions really relevant?
