Abstract:

This study evaluated the relationships of speech discrimination measures obtained in quiet and in noise with various distortion indexes with a group of subjects with sensorineural hearing loss. The results indicated that the most important factors associated with speech intelligibility were the extent and configuration of the hearing loss. The interrelationships among DL tests for frequency and intensity, linear range measures, age, and pure-tone thresholds were examined. Comparisons were made with normal-hearing listeners. Author
