This article describes a new test environment and materials with the potential to measure performance differences among different hearing aid signal processing methods and features. Normative data suggest a linearly predictable increase in difficulty on a speech-in-noise task as the masker changes from random noise to multiple-talker speech, and the number of talkers increases. Data collected with normal listeners revealed no differences across four test sites for the single loudspeaker (Noise… CONTINUE READING
