Feedback whistling is a severe problem with hearing aids. A typical acoustical feedback path represents a wave propagation path from the receiver to the microphone and includes many complicated effects among which some are invariant or nearly invariant for all users and in all acoustical environments given a specific type of hearing aids. Based on this(More)
Feedback oscillation is one of the major issues with hearing aids. An effective way of feedback suppression is adaptive feedback cancellation, which uses an adaptive filter to estimate the feedback path. However, when the external input signal is correlated with the receiver input signal, the estimate of the feedback path is biased. This so-called(More)
Feedback oscillation is one of the major issues with hearing aids. An efficient way of feedback suppression is feedback cancellation, which uses an adaptive filter to estimate the feedback path. However, the feedback canceller suffers from the bias problem in the feedback path estimate. The recent progress suggests a feedback canceller with linear(More)
Feedback whistling is one of the severe problems with hearing aids, especially in dynamic situations when the users hug, pick up a telephone, etc. This paper investigates the properties of the dynamic feedback paths of digital hearing aids and proposes a model based on a reflection assumption. The model is compared with two existing models: a direct model(More)
Ovis ammon darwini: has been listed as a near-threatened species by IUCN-World Conservation Union due to over-hunting and poaching, competition with domestic livestock, and habitat destruction. Study on molecular biology research provides the scientific basis for the protection and sustainable utilization of key endangered species. Mitochondrial genome is(More)
This thesis addresses the problem of feedback cancellation in hearing aids using source separation techniques. Feedback oscillation (when a hearing aid whistles) is a major issue with hearing aids. It limits the maximum gain that can be achieved. The biggest barrier in solving this problem is the bias in feedback cancellation. A great number of algorithms(More)
This paper proposes a reflection model for the dynamic feedback path of digital hearing aids and compares it with two existing models: a direct model and an initialization model, based on the measured dynamic feedback paths. The comparison shows that the proposed model is superior to the existing two models in terms of maximum stable gain (MSG). For hearing(More)
