An Intrinsically Digital Amplification Scheme for Hearing Aids

  title={An Intrinsically Digital Amplification Scheme for Hearing Aids},
  author={Peter J. Blamey and David S. Macfarlane and Brenton Steele},
  journal={EURASIP J. Adv. Sig. Proc.},
Results for linear and wide-dynamic range compression were compared with a new 64-channel digital amplification strategy in three separate studies. The new strategy addresses the requirements of the hearing aid user with efficient computations on an openplatform digital signal processor (DSP). The new amplification strategy is not modeled on prior analog strategies like compression and linear amplification, but uses statistical analysis of the signal to optimize the output dynamic range in each… CONTINUE READING
