Psychoacoustics and Hearing Instruments: What Does a (Psycho-) Physicist Do in a Hearing Instrument Dispensing Chain?
Hearing instrument technologies have changed rapidly in recent times. While the introduction of digitally programmable hearing instruments took place only a few years ago, now hearing instruments with digital signal processing have been introduced on the market. These changes in technology lead to great potential to improve the quality of hearing instrument fittings. On the other hand, measurements performed during the fitting process were not able to keep up with these rapid changes and improvements. This contribution gives some ideas concerning the stages at which psychoacoustics might help to turn the technological potential into an everyday life benefit for the hearing impaired customer during the fitting process.
