Spectral Contribution to the Benefit From Spatial Separation of Speech and Noise
- Slope of PI Function Is Not 10%-per-dB in Noise for All Noises and for All Patients. CHASIN, MARSHALL // Hearing Review;Oct2013, Vol. 20 Issue 11, p12
This article discusses how directional hearing aid microphones and assistive listening devices have benefited people with hearing loss. The author reveals that such devices were able to help some patients communicate better in a difficult listening situation. The author reveals, however, that...
- Effect of F2 Intensity on Identity of /u/ in Degraded Listening Conditions. Hedrick, Mark S.; Nabelek, Anna K. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Oct2004, Vol. 47 Issue 5, p1012
The current study investigated the influence of the second formant (F2) intensity on vowel labeling along a /u/-/i/ continuum. Twenty-two listeners with normalhearing (NH) sensitivity and 14 listeners with sensorineural hearing impairment (HI) were initially presented 2 stimuli for which the F2...
- The Effects of Expansion Time Constants on the Objective Performance of Hearing Instrument Users. Plyler, Patrick N.; Hill, Ashley Blair; Trine, Timothy D. // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Sep2005, Vol. 16 Issue 8, p614
The present study investigated the effects of expansion time constants on the objective performance of 20 hearing instrument users fitted binaurally with digital in-the-ear products. Objective performance was evaluated in quiet using the Connected Speech Test and in noise using the Hearing in...
- The Acceptance of Background Noise in Adult Cochlear Implant Users. Plyler, Patrick N.; Bahng, Junghwa; Von Hapsburg, Deborah // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Apr2008, Vol. 51 Issue 2, p502
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine (a) if acceptable noise levels (ANLs) are different in cochlear implant (CI) users than in listeners with normal hearing, (b) if ANLs are related to sentence reception thresholds in noise in CI users, and (c) if ANLs and subjective outcome...
- Contribution of High-Frequency Information to the Acceptance of Background Noise in Listeners With Normal and Impaired Hearing. Plyler, Patrick N.; Madix, Steven G.; Thelin, James W.; Johnston, Kristie W. // American Journal of Audiology;Dec2007, Vol. 16 Issue 2, p149
Purpose: To determine whether information beyond 2.0 kHz affected the acceptance of background noise in listeners with normal and/or impaired hearing. Method: Speech stimuli (Arizona Travelogue) and multitalker babble were low-pass filtered at cutoff frequencies of 2.0, 4.0, and 6.0 kHz and...

- Improving Hearing Aid Function in Noisy Situations. Stender, Tammara // ASHA Leader;11/1/2011, Vol. 16 Issue 13, p5
The article reports on innovative approaches including strategic microphone placement in nondirectional devices and the use of wireless accessories, for facilitating, hearing in noise. It states strategic microphone placement captures the natural physical characteristics of the external ear to...
- Classroom Acoustics for Children With Normal Hearing and With Hearing Impairment. Crandell, Carl C.; Smaldino, Joseph J. // Language, Speech & Hearing Services in Schools;Oct2000, Vol. 31 Issue 4, p362
Examines the effect of acoustic variables on the speech perception abilities of both children with normal hearing and children with hearing impairments. Factors for accurate speech perception; Noise effects on academic and teacher performance; Signal-to-noise and reverberation time in classrooms.
