Occlusion effects were determined and compared on three groups of subjects (20 normal hearers, 20 with conductive hearing loss, and 20 with sensorineural hearing loss). As in previous studies, the occlusion effects of the conductive group were clearly different from those of the other two groups, especially at 250 Hz. Two procedures are discussed which use the principle of the Bing test to determine when and how to compensate for the occlusion effect while masking for bone conduction.
