Starkey Hearing Technologies announced that company researchers authored and collaborated on more than 12 posters and presented several lectures at the International Hearing Aid Research Conference 2012 (IHCON) held last week in Lake Tahoe, Calif. The conference, held every two years, draws the highest caliber hearing research presentations from around the world.
"This is the biggest hearing research conference in the world," said Brent Edwards, Ph.D., Vice President of Research for Starkey Hearing Technologies. "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 Hearing Technologies was well represented, with nearly 25 researchers presenting lectures, authoring posters and attending the conference. Topics included effects of bilateral compression on spatial unmasking in hearing-impaired listeners, characterization of multi-class acoustic environments, perception evaluation of a binaural beamforming algorithm and optimization of loudness-restoring hearing aid fittings.
