• Brief-tone audiometry was administered to two groups of listeners. The first group consisted of five sophisticated subjects with normal hearing, who were tested under normal and simulated hearing-loss conditions. The second group consisted of five patients with true pseudohypacusis. Results under simulated and true pseudohypacusic conditions were similar, but were different from those obtained from the normal listeners under normal conditions, which further extends the diagnostic value of brief-tone audiometry.
