The identification of nonsense syllables that were lowpass filtered at 1.5 kHz was compared for subjects with normal hearing and subjects with mild-to-severe hearing loss at high frequencies but with normal or near-normal hearing at low frequencies. Absolute thresholds were mostly within the normal range (<20 dB hearing level) for both groups for(More)
The contribution of temporal fine-structure (TFS) cues to consonant identification was compared for seven young adults with normal hearing and five young adults with mild-to-moderate hearing loss and flat, high- or low-frequency gently sloping audiograms. Nonsense syllables were degraded using two schemes (PM: phase modulation; FM: frequency modulation)(More)
