The Outer Ear


The outer ear l.jpg

The outer ear

Cross section of the external ear


Major structures of the outer ear l.jpg

Major structures of The outer ear

  • Pinna or auricle

  • External auditory meatus or external ear canal

  • Tympanic membrane or eardrum


The pinna l.jpg

The pinna

  • Size and shape varies from person to person

  • Gathers sound from the environment and funnels it to the eardrum

  • Made entirely of cartilage and covered with skin

Major landmarks

on the pinna

The pinna

Geographic landmarks for the pinna


Resonance properties of the pinna l.jpg

Resonance properties of The pinna

Resonance effects of the helix (flange) and concha in the most favorable azimuth position. The helix has a 2 dB peak at 4000 Hz. The concha has a 9 dB increase at 5300 Hz.

The external auditory canal l.jpg

The external auditory canal

Cross section of the external ear


The external auditory canal10 l.jpg

2.5 cm long

S-shaped

Outer 1/3 is cartilaginous

Inner 2/3 is bone

Structures

Sebaceous glands

Hair follicles

Osseocartilaginous junction

The external auditory canal


The external auditory canal11 l.jpg

The external auditory canal

Resonance effects of the external auditory meatus, shown as the ratio of the SPL at the eardrum to the SPL at the entrance of the ear canal at 0o azimuth.

The external auditory canal

Combined effects of the presence of the head in a sound field. The upper solid curve represents 0o azimuth, long dashes represent 45o, and the short dashes represent a 90o azimuth.
