Verification of Hearing Aid Direct Streaming: A How-To Guide for the Digital Listening Environment (PD102513)

Presenter(s): Neil Wright, AuD, F-AAA; Joseph Hribar, AuD
Course Description

Streamed audio has grown from a technological novelty into a distinct listening environment for hearing aid users, as smartphones and direct-streaming-enabled hearing aids become commonplace. This presents a unique listening environment that can prove difficult to verify, as streamed audio is not an external stimulus and cannot be verified using conventional methods. This session describes a new and accessible verification method aimed at the streamed audio environment, ensuring that hearing aid users receive optimal benefit in their digital soundscape.
