OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the relative impact of different forms of hearing aid signal processing on quality ratings of music. DESIGN Music quality was assessed using a rating scale for three types of music: orchestral classical music, jazz instrumental, and a female vocalist. The music stimuli were subjected to a wide range of simulated hearing aid processing conditions including, (1) noise and nonlinear processing, (2) linear filtering, and (3) combinations of… CONTINUE READING
