Paired Comparisons: Non-Linear Frequency Compression, Extended Bandwidth, and Restricted Bandwidth

Brennan et al (2014) evaluated whether stimulus type (music passages and spoken sentences in quiet), age of listeners (children and adults), and degree of hearing loss influenced the listeners’ preferences for non-linear frequency compression (NFC), extended bandwidth (EBW), or restricted bandwidth (RBW). For the RBW and the NFC conditions, 5000 Hz was used as the low pass setting and for EBW, the simulator was set to 11,000 Hz.
