In Weber test we strike tuning fork and place it in the middle of forehead and ask pt. if he can hear equal on both sides... (by placing it in the middle we are testing bone conduction)...if pt. has normal air conduction (doesn't have conductive hearing loss) in both ears, then pt. can hear tuning fork equally in both ears. However, if patient has conductive hearing loss, say in left ear, then since there is no air conduction... bone conduction will be increased and Weber will localize to the left ear.

Similarly, if there is sensorineural hearing loss, say in right ear, bone conduction will be decreased in that ear and Weber will localize to left ear because bone conduction is fine in left ear.

Hope I made some sense.
