A Two-Minute Speech-in-Noise Test: Protocol and Pilot Data

Hearing-care professionals (HCPs) and hearing aid wearers report the chief complaint secondary to hearing loss and to wearing traditional hearing aids, is the inability to understand speech-in-noise (SIN; see Beck et al, 2019). Beck et al (2018) reported that, in addition to the 37 million Americans with audiometric hearing loss, 26 million have hearing difficulty and/or difficulty understanding SIN, despite clinically normal thresholds. As such, helping people hear (i.e., to perceive sound) and helping people listen (i.e., to comprehend, or apply meaning to sound) remains paramount.

Vibrations of Ecstacy

Audiologists are all about vibrations. Vibrations in the audible spectrum, and then some even lower frequency, longer wavelength vibrations that the vestibular system is so fond of. Seismologists, interested in detecting earthquakes also live in the world of low-frequency, long-wavelength vibrations. In fact, there is now a global network of detectors, on and listening at all times for seismic activity and documenting earthquakes, small and big alike.

Noisy Eating

“Did you just call me a dork?” The evening is over before you can explain that you were just asking for the fork. Increasingly, such is the fate of many a dinner meeting, social or professional. Those seeking good eats are also finding good and loud beats. While no one can deny the importance of ambiance, the hair cells and the cognitive centers having to work extra hard to carry on a conversation while enjoying a meal are beginning to complain. A visit to any of the modern eateries makes clear that the decor of our times does not naturally lead itself to good acoustics.
