Good evening, I have one question about the hearing exam for a Class 2 medical particularly in regards to Air Traffic Control. One of the standards is to “Demonstrate an ability to hear an average conversational voice in a quiet room, using both ears, at a distance of 6 feet from the examiner, with the back turned to the examiner.” I have tested this and can accomplish this from twice that distance. I understand that the ATC PEPC test however involves using the headphones and responding to the beeps. I have a quiet but continuous ringing in my ears that is typically only noticeable in near silent situations such as when I lay down to go to sleep or during exams in college, however the near silence from the headphones is the exact environment of the PEPC test. The question is if the ringing affected me to the point where I was to fail the headphone portion of the test, could I demonstrate proficiency with the alternate method and still clear the medical exam?
