The objective of this study was to investigate whether a pulsed EM field emitted by a mobile phone for 30 minutes has short-term effects on the human auditory system.

Fifteen volunteers (10 men, 5 women, age 26-50 years) participated. None had medical or auditory problems. Three experiments were performed on each subject, separated by at least one week. The experiments tested auditory brainstem response (ABR), the ABR recovery function, and middle latency response before and after exposure to a mobile phone (800 MHz at 0.8 W net forward power) for 30 minutes.

None of the 3 measures was affected by exposure to the pulsed EM field.
