ID1 Characterization and prediction of the perceptual consequences of individual hearing loss

There are enormous differences in hearing performance across individual listeners. To choose the right compensation strategy, one needs to understand what the sources of this variability are.

Goal: The project characterizes individual hearing loss based on estimates of sensitivity, amplitude compression, spectral and temporal resolution, cognitive capabilities, and their relation to speech intelligibility performance. A computational auditory model is used to predict the consequences of individual deficits and to account for the variability in the data across listeners.

Relevance: Identifying processing deficits of individual listeners and linking these to speech recognition results, will have major implications for computational auditory modelling and advanced compensation strategies in hearing instrument technology.
