Research findings are presented for the Signia AX platform, with its introduction of a new signal processing paradigm called Augmented Focus, which splits the incoming sounds into two separate signal streams. The activation of Augmented Focus showed a significant benefit for speech recognition in background noise, and when compared to leading competitors, a significant advantage also was observed. Additionally, when combined with the Signia AX binaural beamformer, speech recognition for the participants with hearing loss was significantly better than for their normal-hearing counterparts.
In a field trial where recent purchasers of ReSound LiNX2 were refit with ReSound LiNX 3D, subjective outcomes were slightly but significantly improved for ReSound LiNX 3D, with 70% of participants expressing a preference for the sound quality of the newer hearing aid.Read More
What is a realistic SNR and how should we test and assess features such as noise reduction algorithms? This article presents two studies that emphasize the importance of auditory reality on the design, fitting, and evaluation of hearing aids—with the hope of moving towards a firm grip on auditory reality.Read More
The new Signia Nx hearing aids contain Own Voice Processing (OVP™) technology designed to identify when the wearer is speaking. In this way, OVP can employ dual processing for either speech or own-voice conditions.Read More
With the publication of a new thought-provoking book and a constant stream of high-quality research coming from Ryan M. McCreery, PhD, and his colleagues at Boys Town National Research Hospital, we thought this would be a good opportunity to catch up with Dr McCreery.Read More
