A model to evaluate and maximize hearing aid performance by integrating the articulation index across listening conditions.

Abstract

A method for integrating the articulation index (AI) across listening conditions was developed and applied to a preliminary model for evaluating and optimizing prescriptions of hearing aid characteristics. The model takes hearing threshold, masking of noise, self-masking of speech, high level cochlear distortion, and the peak-clipping effects of a hearing… (More)
