Language: EN Electroacoustics - Simulators of human head and ear - Part 5: 2 cm3 coupler for the measurement of hearing aids and earphones coupled to the ear by means of ear inserts

Language: FR Electroacoustique - Simulateurs de tête et d'oreille humaines - Partie 5: Coupleur de 2 cm3 pour la mesure des appareils de correction auditive et des écouteurs couplés à l'oreille par des embouts


Language: EN Describes an acoustic coupler for loading an earphone or hearing aid with a specified acoustic impedance when determining its physical performance characteristics, in the frequency range 125 Hz to 8 kHz. It is suitable for air conduction hearing aids and earphones, coupled to the ear by means of ear inserts e.g. ear moulds or similar devices. The sound pressure developed by an earphone is not, in general, the same in the coupler as in a person's ear. However, it can be used as a simple and ready means for the exchange of specifications and of physical data on hearing aids and for the calibration of specified insert earphones used in audiometry. This first edition of IEC 60318-5 cancels and replaces IEC 60126:1973.
