OBJECTIVES To determine whether non-linear frequency compression (NLFC) is effective for hearing-impaired adults in a clinical setting. To determine whether benefit from NLFC is related to duration of NLFC experience or severity of high-frequency hearing loss. DESIGN Participants were fitted with Phonak frequency compression hearing aids as part of their standard clinical care, using the manufacturer's default fitting settings. Participants had been using NLFC for between 1 and 121 weeks at… CONTINUE READING
