It was found that the male population had a greater hearing effect (the right ear was more sensitive) than the female population. It was found that the magnitude of the hearing effect was significantly related to the level of the hearing threshold. It has been shown that the female gender has greater hearing sensitivity and is more sensitive to exposure to noise at higher frequencies. They also have shorter latencies in their auditory brainstem responses and more spontaneous otoacoustic emissions than men.
Men are better at detecting binaural beats, sound localization and signal detection in complex masking tasks than women. The real difference is that women are more sensitive to loud noises than men, and men tolerate sounds about eight decibels louder than women.
