• 62nd International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians, 18 to 20 October in Nürnberg

    Between 18 and 20 October 2017, more than 8,300 representatives of the hearing aid profession were gathering for the 62nd International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians held in Nürnberg. Delegates from 83 countries attended the event. There were 135 exhibitor stands in the accompanying trade exhibition.

    Twenty specialist lectures, held by renowned presenters from Australia, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and the United States, offered the latest in medical, psychological, and auditory aspects of hearing deficiencies. The accompanying trade exhibition showcased next-generation hearing systems, and presented innovative options for hearing aid professionals when fitting hearing aids.

    The broad range of subjects is the hallmark of the International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians. This year's conference centred around over-the-counter hearing aids and their impact on global hearing care, multilingual speech tests, and speech intelligibility. The industry update on Thursday included reports on directional hearing, speech intelligibility, sound perception, smart connectivity for hearing systems, and cognitive ability. Lectures on Friday focused on hyperacusis, tinnitus, and noise reduction. In addition, there was an interesting discussion of basic and cutting-edge technology from the perspective of an Australian research project.

  • The video recordings (videos) of the lectures presented at the 62nd International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians held in Nürnberg between 18 and 20 Oct 2017 are now online (original-language versions).
