- Music and Hearing Aids. Madsen, Sara M. K.; Moore, Brian C. J. // Trends in Hearing;2014, Vol. 18, p1
The signal processing and fitting methods used for hearing aids have mainly been designed to optimize the intelligibility of speech. Little attention has been paid to the effectiveness of hearing aids for listening to music. Perhaps as a consequence, many hearing-aid users complain that they are...
