Hearing Enhancement

Document Thumbnail

[Feature] There is a growing awareness of the problems of intelligibility that arise for people with hearing impairments when they listen to reproduced sound. Difficulty understanding the content of spoken material in particular can affect both live performance situations involving PA systems and domestic listening situations. It naturally affects the elderly more than the rest of the population, because the incidence of hearing impairment is greater in this sector, but it is by no means irrelevant to many other groups that may suffer hearing difficulties of one kind or another. In this article a number of recent AES convention papers relating to hearing enhancement are summarized.
