The Association Between Physiological Noise Levels and Speech Understanding in Noise.

Summary of "The Association Between Physiological Noise Levels and Speech Understanding in Noise."

Traditionally, elevated hearing thresholds have been considered to be the main contributors to difficulty understanding speech in noise; yet, patients will often report difficulties with speech understanding in noise despite having audiometrically normal hearing. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to critically evaluate the relationship of various metrics of auditory function (behavioral thresholds and otoacoustic emissions) on speech understanding in noise in a large sample of audiometrically normal-hearing individuals.
