Resumé

Elderly hearing-impaired (EHI) listeners can differ widely in terms of their listening abilities in complex environments, even under aided conditions. It is currently unclear how this variability may be addressed in hearing aid (HA) fittings, which are typically based on the audiogram only. Recent research, however, has identified a link between cognitive function and benefit from amplitude compression, thereby suggesting a potential avenue for more individualization of HA fittings. The purpose of the present study was to extend this research to the domain of noise reduction (NR) processing. Using headphone simulations of a busy cafeteria setting, we investigated if hearing loss and cognitive function interact with benefit from a binaural noise reduction (NR) algorithm.
