The effect of loudness recruitment and threshold elevation together with reduced frequency selectivity have been simulated to examine the combined effect of the two major consequences of cochlear hearing loss on the intelligibility of speech in speech-shaped noise. In experiment 1, four conditions were simulated: a moderate flat loss with auditory filters broadened by a factor of three (B3R2); a moderate-to-severe sloping loss with auditory filters broadened by a constant factor of three (B3RX… CONTINUE READING
