The speech understanding of persons with sloping high-frequency (HF) hearing impairment (HI) was compared to normal hearing (NH) controls and previous research on persons with "flat" losses [Hornsby and Ricketts (2003). J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 113, 1706-1717] to examine how hearing loss configuration affects the contribution of speech information in various frequency regions. Speech understanding was assessed at multiple low- and high-pass filter cutoff frequencies. Crossover frequencies, defined… CONTINUE READING
