    Recently, a novel electroencephalographic (EEG) method called ear-EEG [1], that enable recording of auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) from a personalized earpiece was introduced.
    Initial investigations show that well established AEPs, such as ASSR and P1-N1-P2 complex can be observed from ear-EEG recordings [2, 3], implying a possible application for ear-EEG in audiometric characterization of hearing loss. Since the Ear-EEG method provides a discrete and non-invasive way of measuring neural signals and can be integrated into hearing aids, it has great potential for use in everyday life. Ear-EEG may therefore be an enabling technology for objective audiometry out of the clinic, allowing regularly fitting of the hearing aids to be made by the users in their everyday life environment. The objective of this study is to investigate the application of ear-EEG in objective audiometry.
