To study the potential changes in hearing function as a consequence of using Bluetooth devices.
30 subjects (10 men, 20 women) were exposed to a Bluetooth headset device 1) in standby mode for 6 hours and 2) subsequently at full power for 10 minutes.
ばく露時間: continuous for 6 hours in standby mode then for 10 min in active mode at full power
|ばく露時間||continuous for 6 hours in standby mode then for 10 min in active mode at full power|
|ばく露装置の詳細||headset located on ear of participant's preference (18 on left ear, 12 on right ear); headset was paired with a mobile phone|
No parameters are specified for this exposure.
The data did not show any statistically significant changes in hearing function following either exposure type. The authors conclude that exposure to the electromagnetic field emitted by a Bluetooth headset did not decrease hearing thresholds or alter distortion product otoacoustic emissions.
