Auditory brainstem responses with optimized chirp signals compensating basilar-membrane dispersion.
This study examines auditory brainstem responses (ABR) elicited by rising frequency chirps. The time course of frequency change for the chirp theoretically produces simultaneous displacement maximaExpand

Development and evaluation of a German sentence test for objective and subjective speech intelligibility assessment.
A German sentence test was developed which is comprised of 20 test lists of ten sentences each. The test corpus is a selection from sentences for speech quality evaluation recorded with a maleExpand

Database of Multichannel In-Ear and Behind-the-Ear Head-Related and Binaural Room Impulse Responses
An eight-channel database of head-related impulse responses (HRIRs) and binaural room impulse responses (BRIRs) is introduced. The impulse responses (IRs) were measured with three-channelExpand

Directivity of binaural noise reduction in spatial multiple noise-source arrangements for normal and impaired listeners.
Speech reception thresholds (SRTs) were obtained for different azimuths of up to three interfering sound sources in a simulated ("virtual") spatial arrangement. For the SRT measurements a fastExpand

Spectro-temporal modulation subspace-spanning filter bank features for robust automatic speech recognition.
In an attempt to increase the robustness of automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems, a feature extraction scheme is proposed that takes spectro-temporal modulation frequencies (MF) into account.Expand

Revision, extension, and evaluation of a binaural speech intelligibility model.
This study presents revision, extension, and evaluation of a binaural speech intelligibility model (Beutelmann, R., and Brand, T. (2006). J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 120, 331-342) that yields accurateExpand
