Towards a comfortable cocktail party for bimodal listeners

Benjamin Dieudonné

Research Seminar in framework of doctoral education


Thursday, 14 December 2017, 17:00-18:00


An increasingly common solution to severe hearing loss is bimodal stimulation: a cochlear implant in one ear and a hearing aid in the other. Although more and more companies are offering so-called bimodal solutions, the two devices are not designed to work together. This leads to poor transmission of binaural cues, resulting in major difficulties with sound localization and speech understanding in noisy environments. We will present the difficulties that bimodal listeners experience due to poor perception of binaural cues, and suggest some possible solutions to overcome these difficulties. One novel sound processing strategy that we recently developed, head shadow enhancement, did yield some promising results.
