  Purpose

Objective: To evaluate the correlation between audiometric thresholds, pitch matching (PM), minimum masking level (MML), Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) in tinnitus patients.

Subjects: 48 patients with tinnitus as the main complaint from OTOSUL, Otorrinolaringologia Sul-Fluminense, Volta Redonda, RJ, Brasil and Centro de Tratamento e Pesquisa em Zumbido, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brasil.

Method: Subjects performed tonal audiometry, Pitch Matching (PM) and Minimum Masking Level (MML) for tinnitus. They also fulfilled the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). Data was statistically compared for correlation between audiometric thresholds, psycho-acoustic measures and questionnaires.
