Ranking Hearing Aid Input--Output Functions for Understanding Low-, Conversational-, and High-Level Speech in Multitalker Babble
- Optimizing FM Systems. Huong Nguyen; Bentler, Ruth // ASHA Leader;10/11/2011, Vol. 16 Issue 12, p5
The article focuses on the optimization of frequency modulation (FM) system advantages for people with speech, language, or hearing disability, by verifying and following up device function. It mentions the FM optimization guidelines recommending 10 decibels (dB) of higher FM-microphone inputs...
- 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...
- Is There a Hearing Aid for the Thinking Person? Hafter, Ervin R. // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Oct2010, Vol. 21 Issue 9, p594
Background: The history of auditory prosthesis has generally concentrated on bottom-up processing, that is, on audibility. However, a growing interest in top-down processing has focused on correlations between success with a hearing aid and such higher order processing as the patient's...

- Do Experienced Hearing Aid Users Know How to Use Their Hearing Aids Correctly? Desjardins, Jamie L.; Doherty, Karen A. // American Journal of Audiology;Jun2009, Vol. 18 Issue 1, p69
Purpose: To assess experienced hearing aid users' ability to use their hearing aids correctly. Method: In this study, we developed the Practical Hearing Aid Skills Test (PHAST) to objectively test a hearing aid user's ability to manipulate his or her hearing aids. The PHAST requires hearing aid...
- From the Editors. Chung, King; Ricketts, Todd A. // Trends in Amplification;2003, Vol. 7 Issue 4, preceding p117
Introduces the article about hearing aid satisfaction in the December 2003 issue of the "Trends in Amplification". Effectiveness of measurement tools and the timing of administering the hearing aid satisfaction measurements; Information about the authors.
- Hearing Aid Satisfaction: What Does Research from the Past 20 Years Say? Wong, Lena L. N.; Hickson, Louise; McPherson, Bradley // Trends in Amplification;2003, Vol. 7 Issue 4, p117
Hearing aid satisfaction is a pleasurable emotional experience as an outcome of an evaluation of performance. Many tools have been designed to measure the degree of satisfaction overall, or along the dimensions of cost, appearance, acoustic benefit, comfort, and service. Various studies have...
- Comparison of Performance with Wide Dynamic Range Compression and Linear Amplification. Kam, Anna C. S.; Kam, Anna C.S.; Wong, Lena L.N.; Wong, Lena L. N. // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Sep1999, Vol. 10 Issue 9, p445
This study compared subject performance and preference using a compression-limiting hearing aid set to linear amplification (program 1) and wide dynamic range compression (WDRC, program 2). The frequency responses of the hearing aid were matched to a 65 dB SPL signal and maximum output to a...
