OBJECTIVES: Communicating in noisy settings can be difficult due to interference and environmental noise, which can impact intelligibility for those with hearing impairments and those with normal hearing threshold. Speech intelligibility is commonly assessed in audiology through speech audiometry in quiet environments. Nevertheless, this test may not effectively assess hearing challenges in noisy environments, as total silence is rare in daily activities. A recently patented method, known as the SRT50 FAST, has been developed for conducting speech audiometry in noise...

OBJECTIVE: The Baha SoundArc coupling system has been developed as a non-surgical coupling of a Baha sound processor to the skull allowing the transfer of vibrational energy to the cochlear partition via bone conduction pathways. Today, there are several alternatives to this non-surgical approach as the Baha headband/test band, or the Baha Softband, or adhesive patches. Each of these current options have benefits and liabilities. The aim of the study was to evaluate pediatric experience and performance when using two non-surgical options, the Baha SoundArc compared to the Baha Softband...
