In this clinical study, 110 patients seen at three different clinical facilities were fit binaurally with linear, in-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids. All patients were new hearing aid users. Each of the hearing aids was equipped with an adjustable control that could be set by one of the audiologists (Audiologist A) at each site to convert it from a linear instrument to an experimental nonlinear one with automatic reduction of low-frquency gain at high input levels (or base increase at low levels… CONTINUE READING
