Loudness and hearing loss
2011 (English)In: Loudness / [ed] M Florentine, A N Popper, R R Fay, Springer-Verlag New York, 2011, 223-259 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
A hearing loss affects many aspects of sound perception. The study of loudness in relation to hearing loss is scientifically important and interesting for several reasons. It is clinically interesting to understand the physiological reasons for the abnormal loudness perception that is common in people with hearing losses. Knowledge about individual loudness perception is central for the habilitation/ rehabilitation of people with impaired hearing. Hearing aids are designed and individually adjusted to compensate, as much as possible, for abnormal loudness perception.General knowledge about loudness perception can be gained by studying the effects of hearing loss on loudness perception.
