Disorders of Sound Tolerance
A variety of unusual and challenging auditory events may be associated with excessive loudness, pitch anomalies, aversions to specific sounds, or the sensation of pain in the ears. This presentation will review mechanisms associated with disordered sound tolerance (DST), including hyperacusis, diplacusis, and auditory nociception. Audiologists lack consensus regarding the terminology associated with such disorders (i.e., misophonia) and distinctions will be made between different labeling schemes. Relations between audiometric status and DST will be reinforced using clinical data.
