Why are calibrations important?

AK: Calibration assures that the audiometer and its transducers are performing to ANSI or ISO standards. During calibrations, preventive checks on connections, cables, and other details can help ensure proper operation for another year, and can possibly predict troubles ahead as well.

FUN FACT:  Not all living creatures hear with their ears.  Snakes use jawbones, fish respond to pressure changes, and male mosquitoes use tiny hairs growing on their antennae.
