The most commonly used methods to measure hearing protectors attenuation can be divided into two categories: psychoacoustical (subjective) and physical (objective) methods. In order to better understand the relationship between these methods, this article presents various factors relating attenuation values obtained with these methods through a series of(More)
To enhance the communication experience of workers equipped with hearing protection devices and radio communication in noisy environments, alternative methods of speech capture have been utilized. One such approach uses speech captured by a microphone in an occluded ear canal. Although high in signal-to-noise ratio, bone and tissue conducted speech has a(More)
Noise reduction algorithms are nowadays used in multiple areas such as hearing aids, cochlear implants, telecommunication systems and hu-man/robot interaction devices. Issues with most of the current single channel noise reduction algorithms: • The use of a priori information for the estimation of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) or the noise parameters. •(More)
Models for acoustic transducers, such as loudspeakers, mastoid bone-drivers, hearing-aid receivers, etc., are critical elements in many acoustic applications. Acoustic transducers employ two-port models to convert between acoustic and electromagnetic signals. This study analyzes a widely-used commercial hearing-aid receiver ED series, manufactured by(More)
With the increase popularity of individual fit testing and miniaturization of electronic components, the Field-Microphone-In-Real-Ear approach (F-MIRE) is becoming more appealing and well suited for estimating hearing protection devices (HPD) attenuation both in laboratory and in "real world" occupational conditions. The approach utilizes two miniature(More)
This research aims to provide a unique perspective on energy harvesting from ear canal dynamic motion that can be used to power electronic in-ear devices. Two micro-power generators are presented: one of them has a miniature hydro-electromagnetic core and another one is composed of a micro piezo film sheet in shape of a ring. The experimental results will(More)
