Listeners Who Have Low Hearing Thresholds Do Not Perform Better in Difficult Listening Tasks
The relationship between measures of hearing acuity and performance in listening tasks for normally hearing subjects has not found a solid evidence. In this work six one-parameter measures of hearing acuity, based on audiograms, were used to investigate whether a relationship between these measures and listeners’ performance existed. The quantifiable results of several listening tests were analysed, using speech and non-speech stimuli. The results showed no correlation between hearing acuity and performance thus demonstrating that hearing acuity should not be a critical factor in the choice of listeners.
