We evaluated the performance of experienced hearing-aid users wearing seven different commercially available "noise-suppression" hearing aids. Two hearing aids, the Audiotone A-54 and the Telex 363C, used amplitude compression.

Sixteen subjects listened to 13 consonants in the form (i)-consonant-(i) with six… CONTINUE READING
