Abstract:

This project develops and tests an easy to use and unobtrusive hearing aid accessory that utilizes a directional microphone array: to improve understanding of speech in noisy environments. A common problem amongst hearing aid users is trouble understanding speech while listening to a conversation in environments with competing speech babble noise and other noises such as restaurant conversations, social gatherings, and conversations in busy workplaces or schools. The prototype accessory enhances conversation intelligibility with a directional microphone array that wirelessly transmits audio to the user’s hearing aids or a wireless ear piece for thise who do not use hearing aids.
