45BB KEMAR Head and Torso Applications Hearing aid testing Ear- and headphone testing Sound quality recordings Standards ANSI S3.36/ASA58-2012 ANSI S3.25/ASA80-1989 IEC 60318-7:2011 Head and Torso Simulator IEC 60318-4 (60711) Ear Simulator ITU-T Rec. P .57 Type 3.3 Pinna Simulator Features Geometry similar to a real person Accurate in-situ simulation of the effects of a human head and torso in a sound field Configurable with prepolarized or externally polarized microphone-preamplifier assemblies Fig. 1. 45BB KEMAR Head and Torso 55 Shore OO, 35 Shore OO pinnae, and three different ear canal extensions are available worldwide average human male and female head and torso dimensions. It meets the requirements of ANSI S3.36/ASA58-2012 and IEC 603187:2011. Can be mounted with ½" or ¼" pressure microphones for sound quality applications Easy calibration: The pistonphone calibration can be performed from the outside Standard connectors for many types of analyzers The KEMAR head and torso simulator was introduced by Knowles in 1972 and quickly became the industry standard for hearing-aid manufacturers and research audiologists. It is based on The G.R.A.S. 45BB KEMAR Head and Torso has the same dimensions and acoustical properties as the original KEMAR, but has been developed further by G.R.A.S. to meet the industry’s demand for realistic measurements of hearing aids, headphones and headsets. It provides acoustic diffraction similar to that encountered around the median human head and torso, both in the proximity and in the far field.

45BB KEMAR Head and Torso Artificial Ears Fig. 2. Standard pinnae (normal or soft hardness available) Fig. 3. Small pinnae (normal or soft hardness available) KEMAR Ear Canal Extension The 45BB KEMAR Head and Torso (Fig. 1) is an acoustic research tool with built-in ear simulators that simulates the changes that occur to sound waves as they pass a human head and torso. The standardized Ear Canal Extension RA0237 conforms with the requirements of the IEC 60318-7 standard. It is made of steel and will not deform when testing devices in the concha or devices that are pressed against the pinnae, e.g....

45BB KEMAR Head and Torso The IEC 60318-4 Ear Simulator tuned resistive grooves. Its input impedance resembles that of the human ear and therefore it loads the device under test in a way very similar to the human ear. The acoustic impedance of the RA0045 is measured at the ear reference point using an impedance probe, in accordance with the ITU-T Recommendations P57 (08/96). Fig. 5. IEC 60318-4 (711) Ear Simulator and Ear Canal Extension The G.R.A.S. Ear Simulator according to IEC 60318-4 is an ear simulator with an input impedance that closely resembles that of the human ear. It meets the requirements...
