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.

Pediatric Amplification Perspectives 2014: Part 2

Dillon, Ching, and Golding (2014) report commercially available hearing aids are available that switch automatically from omni to directional mode (if and only if) the directional mode has a superior signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Further, it is well known and has been consistently demonstrated that children require a more advantageous SNR than do adults, and it is far more likely that adaptive directionality will provide a listening advantage rather than a disadvantage.

Diabetes and Hearing Loss: 2008 Update and Review

Type I diabetes (insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, IDDM) is often referred to as “juvenile onset” diabetes and represents some 5 to 10 percent of all known cases of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes (non-IDDM) accounts for some 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases. Type 1 diabetics must acquire insulin via injection or a pump. Type 2 diabetics can often control their diabetes via healthy eating and exercise and sometimes oral meds are prescribed.

Using Ultrasound to Study Motion: An Interview with Professor John H. Page, PhD

As audiologists, we live in very focused arenas, such as human hearing. However, there are many sounds above, below and beyond human perception. Further, there are many things sound facilitates besides speech, language, music and background noise. In this interview, we explore some uses of sound with respect to non-human production and perception of sound.

By Douglas L. Beck, AuD

Academy/Beck: Hi, John. It’s an honor to meet you.

Page: Hi, Doug. Thanks. It’s nice to meet you, too.
