Speech recognition was measured in listeners with normal hearing and in listeners with sensorineural hearing loss under conditions that simulated hearing aid processing in a low-pass and speech-shaped background noise. Differing amounts of low-frequency gain reduction were applied during a high-frequency monosyllable test and a sentence level test to… CONTINUE READING
