Like the other special rooms in the Acoustics Laboratory, the Audiometry room has sound-isolating walls, floor and ceiling. The acoustic isolation of rooms next to each other is necessary so that experiments and measurements are not disturbed by noise from the outside. The walls and ceiling of the Audiometry room are covered by absorbing material, which makes this one of the most "quiet" rooms in the laboratory. The room was made particularly for audiometric examinations of the subjects and conforms to the ISO 8253-2 standard. The room can also be used for measurements that require only little space and less absorptive surroundings than those found in the anechoic room. The room is accessed via Control room A.
