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.

Name: Ear and hearing
Maximum power output (MPO) levels of bone anchored hearing systems (BAHS) vary between different devices, but are significantly lower than those of conventional hearing aids, potentially limiting spee...
Purpose The study aimed to assess the relationship between the level-dependent function of efferent inhibition and speech perception in noise across different intensities of suppressor and across diff...
The effects of noise are harmful to patients in the ICU environment, and the latter are particularly noisy places. High noise levels seem to be a factor in sleep disturbance, which can, in turn, resul...
To determine the impact of imaging parameters on the temporal signal-to-noise ratio (TSNR) of quantitative cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) in humans, and to determine applicability of the physiologica...
Although cochlear implantation has significantly contributed to the speech perception of cochlear implant (CI) users, these individuals still have significant difficulty in understanding speech, espec...
The effect of noise is often underestimated but it is one of the most common occupational health hazards. Its health effects include; noise-induced hearing loss, sleep disturbance, interfe...
The goal of this study is to take into account channel interaction in the cochlear implant (CI) fitting process. Designing a fast and accurate method of measurement would help to customize...
The primary complaint of individuals with hearing loss is difficulty understanding speech in the presence of background noise. Although hearing aids help individuals understand speech in b...
Speech understanding in noise remains the greatest challenge for people using cochlear implants, particularly when the speech of interest comes from the side of the head opposite to the im...
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of a speech-to-noise feedback procedure for the treatment of hypophonia in Parkinson's disease. The procedure includes a device that records the ...
Measurement of the ability to hear speech under various conditions of intensity and noise interference using sound-field as well as earphones and bone oscillators.
Noise present in occupational, industrial, and factory situations.
Noise associated with transportation, particularly aircraft and automobiles.
Hearing loss due to exposure to explosive loud noise or chronic exposure to sound level greater than 85 dB. The hearing loss is often in the frequency range 4000-6000 hertz.
Any sound which is unwanted or interferes with HEARING other sounds.
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
