“Cognition and variable compression – new insights into a particular dimension of hearing”
Researchers have long been aware of the connection. Current research results show that the release times of hearing aid compression and individual cognitive resources are more closely correlated than previously assumed.
The presentation will examine the details of the connection between processing speed and cognitive capacity, and also cover the importance of this relationship with regard to speech intelligibility. Thus, it is evident that individual cognitive capacities that are needed to process sound should be taken into account to achieve a sustainable hearing experience using hearing aids. In addition, the significance of a highly adaptive and variable compression system, and its benefit when used in the hearing aid fitting process will also be dealt with.
