The sound of a cochlear implant

Project: Research project

Project Details


The sound of a cochlear implant The sound of a cochlear implant Implanting single-sided deaf individuals finally provided a population of listeners who could answer the question. We can create for the good ear of these listeners signals that might sound like their implant and can ask the listeners whether that signal comes close to the sound of their implant. Our work with MED-EL implants indicates that the sound of a CI can be, most generally, described as muffled. For the unlucky patient, the muffling is extreme and intelligibility of speech is poor. However, for most patients, the muffling is moderate or minor and speech understanding is good to excellent. Again, my laboratory was the first to describe the sound quality of a cochlear implant.
