People with sensorineural hearing impairment typically have more difficulty than normally hearing people in understanding speech in the presence of background sounds. This paper starts by quantifying the magnitude of the problem in various listening situations and with various types of background sound. It then considers some of the factors that contribute to this difficulty, including: reduced audibility; reduced frequency selectivity; loudness recruitment; and regions in the cochlea which… CONTINUE READING
