Brief Answer: Need more details. Detailed Answer: Hi Sir, The details provided aren't sufficient. Please send your complete audiometric report, so that I able to provide you good and complete information about your hearing. You only provide the frequency in which your hearing test is done but it is absolute necessary to know about the threshold decibels of your testing frequency. For your information the examiner systematically finds the softest sounds the participant can hear across a range of frequencies and determines the hearing thresholds (the softest sounds one can hear across the range of pitches). Frequency ("pitch") is measured in Hertz. Loudness ("volume") is measured in decibels. There are two types of threshold air conduction and bone conduction. Together, air and bone conduction thresholds help indicate where a hearing problem may be. I hope to review your complete report. Regards
