- Quantifying the Effect of Compression Hearing Aid Release Time on Speech Acoustics and Intelligibility. Jenstad, Lorienne M.; Souza, Pamela E. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun2005, Vol. 48 Issue 3, p651
Compression hearing aids have the inherent, and often adjustable, feature of release time from compression. Research to date does not provide a consensus on how to choose or set release time. The current study had 2 purposes: (a) a comprehensive evaluation of the acoustic effects of release time...

- Perceptual training improves syllable identification in new and experienced hearing aid users. // Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development;July2006, Vol. 43 Issue 4, p537
We assessed the effects of perceptual training of syllable identification in noise on nonsense syllable test (NST) performance of new (Experiment 1) and experienced (Experiment 2) hearing aid (HA) users with sensorineural hearing loss. In Experiment 1, new HA users were randomly assigned to...
- Should a Hearing Aid in the Contralateral Ear Be Recommended for Children With a Unilateral Cochlear Implant? Beijen, Jan-Willem; Mylanus, Emmanuel A. M.; Leeuw, A. Rens; Snik, Ad F. M. // Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology;Jun2008, Vol. 117 Issue 6, p397
Objectives: To predict bimodal benefit before cochlear implantation, we compared the performances of participants with bimodal fitting and with a cochlear implant alone on speech perception tests. Methods: Twenty-two children with a cochlear implant in one ear and a hearing aid in the other...
