Tone‐burst‐evoked otoacoustic emissions were measured as a function of tone‐burst sound pressure level and frequency in normally hearing ears. Although the spectral and temporal properties varied across individual ears, there was a close correspondence between stimulus and response spectra. Both the spectral and latency characteristics of tone‐burst‐evoked emissions are consistent with the hypothesis that they are generated at sites along the cochlear partition corresponding to their frequency.
