  • Obscure auditory dysfunction (OAD) is a disorder for which patients report excessive amounts of difficulty understanding speech in the presence of background noise, despite no obvious evidence of hearing loss. It has been hypothesized that OAD may be the result of mild cochlear dysfunction, central auditory processing deficits, and/or psychological disorders. We evaluated 10 persons with self‐reported problems understanding speech in noisy environments and 10 controls. Both groups had normal… CONTINUE READING
