A Historical Perspective on Hearing Aid Selection, by David B. Hawkins, PhD

By David B. Hawkins, PhD

November/December 1994 HR: The hearing healthcare field is at a fascinating time in hearing aid and protocol development. It’s evident that better circuitry is available today than even 5 years ago, and the rise of nonlinear circuitry is transforming the way we treat hearing loss. Unfortunately, the technology is outpacing our current fitting methods. The challenge ahead is to explore new optimal fitting parameters for nonlinear circuits.
