Providing audibility of a wide range of input levels from a broad frequency spectrum is a goal of any hearing aid fitting. For listeners with high-frequency sensorineural hearing loss, this goal can be challenging to meet with amplitude compression technology for several reasons. Firstly, this technology is limited in its ability to provide the appropriate amount of gain for soft, high-frequency sounds. If suitable gain is achieved in the high-frequency region, acoustic feedback may result when… CONTINUE READING
