This study was a cross-sectional within-subject comparative study establishing the reliability and validity of a computerized self-administered hearing test. 100 adult Chinese who attended the audiology clinic in the Prince of Wales Hospital for a hearing test were recruited to participate. The pure-tone test results obtained via traditional clinical procedure were compared with those obtained with the self-administered system. The results suggest that the computerized self-administered hearing test is a reliable and valid measure of unmasked air-conduction hearing thresholds.
