It has been proposed that the clinical accuracy of distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) is affected by the interaction of distortion and reflection sources contributing to the response. This study evaluated changes in dichotomous-decision test performance and threshold-prediction accuracy when DPOAE source contribution was controlled. Data were(More)
The effect of adjusting the consonant-vowel (C-V) intensity ratio on consonant recognition in 18 subjects with sensorineural hearing impairment was investigated. C-V intensity ratios in a set of 48 vowel-consonant nonsense syllables were adjusted in steps of 3-6 dB depending on the subject's dynamic range of hearing. An increase in consonant intensity is(More)
