Using Tracking of Noise Tolerance (TNT) as an Outcome Measure for Hearing Aids

The TNT is a reliable and efficient clinical test that allows measurement of a hearing-impaired listener’s tolerance for noise—with and without hearing aids—so that the results can be compared to normal-hearing listeners, among various hearing aid features, and on the same individual over time. This tool may also be useful for estimating potential satisfaction of the fitted hearing aids in real-life noisy environments.

Towards a Firm Grip on Auditory Reality

What is a realistic SNR and how should we test and assess features such as noise reduction algorithms? This article presents two studies that emphasize the importance of auditory reality on the design, fitting, and evaluation of hearing aids—with the hope of moving towards a firm grip on auditory reality.
