Abstract

Background: One of the most mystifying problems faced by individuals who are exposed to high levels of noise (either occupational or recreational) is the slow deterioration of hearing that takes place . Evidence from the literature also indicates that noise causes a significant sensory neural hearing loss. hence we planned to compare the hearing of priests and workers of temples using pure tone audiometry and the fine spectral DPOAEs.
