This paper proposes the use of some musical-inspired features for the automatic classification of sounds in digital hearing aids. This kind of application is characterized by very strong constraints in terms of computational complexity. The proposed features are based on fundamental frequency detection and exhibit a low computational complexity while providing good results in terms of probability of correct classification. The performance of the system will be tested using an 1-NN classifier being the goal to distinguish among speech, noise and music. For the experiments, a sound database, obtained using a hearing aid simulator, will be used.
