Objective Measures to Quantify the Perceptual Effects of Noise Reduction in Hearing Aids
Twenty listeners with hearing impairment evaluated three noise-reduction algorithms using paired comparisons of speech clarity, noise loudness, and preference. The subjective test produces results in terms of physical signal-to-noise ratios that correspond to equal subjective performance with and without the noise-reduction algorithms. This facilitates a direct test of how well a number of objective performance measures correspond with the subjective test results.
