      Hi @Tinker Bell

      I'd definitely avoid this test like the plague. For me, as you rightly pointed out, it was to determine a starting point for hyperacusis treatment. I know some of the beeps went as loud as 90db (one of my ears is less sensitive to noise than the other). I trusted the person doing the test but clearly my ears cannot stand loud noise, especially through headphones. If you no longer have hyperacusis then I doubt the test would be useful to you. For me, I've noticed another drop in my hearing so I know it's affected me.

      unknown, probably loud music
      LDLs should only be carried out by an experienced audiologist who is sensitive to the needs/wishes of the person with hyperacusis. It "can" be a useful tool but should be used with extreme caution and only if really necessary
