Fine-Tuning Hearing Instruments Using an Economical Sound SimulatorBy Pehringer, James L., AuD; Hearing Review, Vol. 12, No. 6, pp. 50-52, 70
Publication Date: June 2005
Article discusses Environmental Sound Simulator (ESS) software, which was developed to create a realistic audio-visual simulation of typical listening environments that consumers can use to express their hearing problems. The software re-creates difficult listening situations so that consumers can identify problems they have with current hearing aids, and can help to establish the need for different strategies and devices. The software also offers the hearing care professional a realistic audio-visual representation of common listening environments such as restaurants, houses of worship, group meetings, and watching television. These situations can allow the professional to evaluate hearing difficulties that occur in the environment, and determine the most appropriate course of rehabilitation.
