Remote Microphones, Normal Hearing, and APD

Keith and Purdy (2014) report that "remote microphone hearing aids are hybrid radio and hearing aid systems designed for children with normal peripheral hearing…". They state that FM systems are increasingly being replaced by digital modulation wireless technologies. The authors report that published evidence and their own personal experience suggests the majority of children with auditory processing disorder (APD) benefit from amplification with remote microphone hearing aids.

Tinnitus Etiology and Perceived Pitch

Zagolski and Strek (2014) report that tinnitus pitch and minimum masking level (MML) are dependent on the etiology of the tinnitus—MML is defined as the level at which tinnitus was just rendered inaudible and defined in dB SL. They report on 405 adults with a mean age of 51 years (range 17 to 85 yrs), including 195 females and 210 males. Two hundred and twenty (220) people reported bilateral tinnitus and 185 reported unilateral tinnitus, resulting in 625 ears with tinnitus. Of note, in 512 ears, tinnitus was described as a pure-tone, in 113 ears, tinnitus was described as pulsing/popping.

Cochlear Implant Programming on a Global Scale

As we are each familiar, cochlear implant (CI) programming (i.e., "mapping") is a necessary step in the post-operative aural rehabilitation of the CI patient. However, excellent clinical practice guides appear to be lacking, in general, from a global perspective. The authors distributed a questionnaire to 47 CI centers, following more than 47,000 CI patients and, of note, each questionnaire was returned. View the distributed questionnaire.

BiCROS in Noise

Oeding and Valente (2013) examined the performance of a bilateral contralateral routing of signal (BiCROS) hearing aid in noise while engaging the receiver and transmitter noise reduction (NR) technology within Unitron’s Tandem 16 (16 channel) BiCROS hearing aid. The authors report that there are few peer-reviewed studies in which the efficacy and effectiveness of BiCROS technology has been examined in background noise. Twenty-one adults experienced with BiCROS participated in the study.
