Company researchers from Starkey Laboratories Inc, Eden Prairie, Minn, presented a total of nine lectures and posters at the International Hearing Aid Research Conference 2010 (IHCON) held recently in Lake Tahoe, Calif.

The conference, held every 2 years, draws high-caliber hearing research presentations from around the world from institutions including Cambridge University, Vanderbilt University, and National Acoustic Laboratories in Sydney, Australia.

“This is the biggest hearing research conference in the world,” said Brent Edwards, PhD, VP of Research for Starkey. “We are proud to be measured against the very best global talent. It’s a testament to the exciting work we are doing every day.”

Starkey researchers shared three presentations and six posters over the course of the 5-day event. Topics included sound localization, speech understanding in complex situations, hearing aid directionality, binaural perception, and speech and noise subject matter.

Besides Edwards, presenters included a variety of researchers from the Starkey Hearing Research Center in Berkeley, Calif, and Starkey’s corporate headquarters in Minnesota, including Sridhar Kalluri, Bill Woods, Shilpi Banerjee, Nazanin Nooraei, Karrie Recker, Drew Dundas, Tao Zhang, and Martin McKinney.
