This study determined whether listeners with hearing loss received reduced benefits due to an onset asynchrony between sounds. Seven normal-hearing listeners and 7 listeners with hearing impairment (HI) were presented with 2 synthetic, steady-state vowels. One vowel (the late-arriving vowel) was 250 ms in duration, and the other (the early-arriving vowel) varied in duration between 350 and 550 ms. The vowels had simultaneous offsets, and therefore an onset asynchrony between the 2 vowels ranged… CONTINUE READING
