OBJECTIVE To evaluate wideband amplification and non-linear frequency compression (NLFC) as a means to improve speech recognition for children with mild/moderate hearing loss. DESIGN Randomized within-subject design with repeated measures across test conditions. STUDY SAMPLE Eleven children with mild to moderate hearing loss were evaluated with: (1) Phonak BTE without NLFC, (2) Phonak BTE with NLFC, and (3) Oticon BTE with wideband response extending to 8000 Hz. RESULTS Use of NLFC… CONTINUE READING
