As a leading manufacturer of audiometric booths, WhisperRoom is dedicated to providing high-quality, reliable solutions for accurate hearing testing. Choosing the right audiometric booth is crucial to ensure accurate and reliable results, and it can be a daunting task. With so many options available on the market, it’s important to know what features to look for. In this article, we’ll discuss the top features to consider when choosing an audiometric booth and why WhisperRoom stands out as a top choice for hearing testing professionals.

1. Sound Isolation

When it comes to audiometric testing, sound isolation is critical. The last thing anyone wants is for outside noise to interfere with the results of a hearing test. WhisperRoom understands this need and we have designed our booths with isolation as a top priority.

Compared to other hearing booth manufacturers, WhisperRoom achieves superior sound isolation through specific features and easy-to-assemble construction techniques. Single-wall isolation, double-walled panels with an air gap, sealed door systems, and multi-layered windows all contribute to a highly effective sound isolation system. These features help to ensure that the booth remains an ideal acoustic environment for accurate and reliable hearing testing.

2. Size and Customization

Choosing the right size and customization options for an audiometric booth is essential to creating an optimal testing environment.

WhisperRoom offers a wide range of sizes and customization options to fit specific testing needs, including the addition of windows, an ADA package, interior lighting, and much more.

Whether you need a compact single-person booth or a larger booth to accommodate multiple testers or equipment, we have a reliable and comfortable testing environment.

Audiology Booth Packages

Searching for a suitable audiometric booth can be a tedious, expensive, and exasperating process. We understand this predicament and have developed two audiology suites as pre-packaged solutions. These control rooms offer you our most popular booth configurations for hearing tests.

Our team designed audiology packages to provide a comprehensive solution for your hearing testing needs. We’ve included our most popular booth configurations and a set of features that are tailored for the audiology industry. You can apply the package features to any of our 26 booth sizes, which gives you the flexibility to choose the size that best suits your facility’s needs.

With the added convenience of a 5% discount, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best value for your investment. Plus, you can save time and effort in selecting the right booth configuration, making the process more efficient and stress-free.

3. Ventilation

Proper ventilation is another key consideration when shopping for a new audiometric booth. Without adequate airflow, occupants can quickly become uncomfortable.

WhisperRoom has thoughtfully incorporated ventilation silencing features into our audiology booth designs to ensure clients can maintain a comfortable testing environment while still achieving optimal testing parameters.

We offer two unique features that significantly reduce noise ventilation noise during audiology testing, the Ventilation Silencing System (VSS) and the Exterior Fan Silencer (EFS).

Inside the booth, the Ventilation Silencing System (VSS) isolates the sound of the fan to ensure that hearing tests are not affected by any unwanted noise. Meanwhile, the Exterior Fan Silencer (EFS) significantly reduces noise from the Remote Fan Unit that is outside of the booth. We position the EFS around each fan to eliminate any residual noise, creating an incredibly quiet and efficient testing environment. With these features, your audiology testing is not only accurate but also as comfortable and quiet as possible.

4. Certification and Compliance

Choosing an audiometric booth that meets or exceeds industry standards and certifications is key. In this regard, WhisperRoom stands out as we design and construct our booths to meet various certification requirements, such as OSHA, ADA Accommodation, and ANSI Standards.

We test our products sound isolation, ventilation, and other factors to ensure that they comply with all necessary regulations. Opting for a WhisperRoom booth means you can trust that you’re getting a product that’s compliant, can be certified, and meets the highest quality standards.

Learn more about certification, compliance, and testing methods by contacting your Product Representative.

5. Durability and Expansion

We construct our booths to withstand the wear and tear of daily use, providing you with a space that lasts for years. WhisperRoom makes each booth from high-quality materials that are both durable and easy to maintain. We use ¾” MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) for all interior and exterior components of our audiometric booths, including the doors. The components are precision cut using a CNC router to ensure accurate fitting and are completely covered in a durable, charcoal gray cloth material that is also visually appealing.

Also, if your audiology practice moves locations or you find that your office becomes a high-traffic area, you have the option to upgrade your WhisperRoom from Standard (single-wall) isolation to Enhanced (double-wall) isolation. Upgrading to an Enhanced system is easy and convenient. You can install the appropriate Isolation Enhancement Package (IEP) at any time to increase sound isolation and provide additional protection for sensitive hearing tests.

This ensures that your WhisperRoom will continue to meet your evolving needs and provide a reliable and durable testing environment for your patients.

“Great experience with WhisperRoom. Jill and Sarah were fantastic to work with. I was hesitant about assembly on our own, but it was completed with no issues. Sarah was very helpful and was able to personalize the delivery to our unique situation. I’ve been told by multiple people it’s the nicest hearing booth they have ever been in! Would highly recommend!”

“We operate a physical therapy clinic and recently added a speech-language pathologist. In treating patients with vocal issues, some therapy includes loud speaking, approaching 85 decibels. We needed a room that would serve this function without disrupting our normal PT patients. After a great deal of research, I found the Whisper Room! Our staff loves it! It looks great in our clinic, and the sound reduction is better than I anticipated. The setup was straightforward and the delivery company placed the pallet exactly next to the spot we desired to set the room up. Jill Holdway was wonderful to deal with and helped me set up the options that we needed, such as the ADA ramp and floor. I can truly say that if I ever have the need for another sound reduction room, I would order the Whisper Room again!”

“I bought a WhisperRoom in November. I just opened my practice and wanted a good reliable room for audiologic testing. It came on a pallet and with a friend’s help, we moved it from the pallet to my clinic space. We then built it in about 4.5 hours. I love using this WhisperRoom, it suits my needs perfectly.”
