The subjective calibration of bone-conduction receivers for hearing aids

To design a bone-conduction hearing aid it is necessary to know how loud a sound is produced by a given input to a receiver, but subjective calibrations by normal observers are unreliable as a guide to performance with deaf subjects. The influence of an intact air-conduction path on the subjective sensitivity of a bone-conduction receiver may be obviated by a method described, which simulates the effects of complete middle-ear deafness. Calibrations effected by this method using normal observers should be directly applicable to deaf subjects with serious middle-ear defects, but with substantially normal inner ears. Such subjects constitute the majority of those for whom bone-conduction aids are likely to be useful.

It publishes original articles on all subjects in the field of acoustics, such as general linear acoustics, nonlinear acoustics, macrosonics, flow acoustics, atmospheric sound, underwater sound, ultrasonics, physical acoustics, structural acoustics, noise control, active control, environmental noise, building acoustics, room acoustics, acoustic materials, acoustic signal processing, computational and numerical acoustics, hearing, audiology and psychoacoustics, speech, musical acoustics, electroacoustics, auditory quality of systems. It reports on original scientific research in acoustics and on engineering applications. The journal considers scientific papers, technical and applied papers, book reviews, short communications, doctoral thesis abstracts, etc. In irregular intervals also special issues and review articles are published.
