The ability to combine and compare the information received at the two ears confers many perceptual advantages relative to listening with only one ear. This chapter reviews the advantages of binaural hearing, and considers how those advantages may be affected by cochlear hearing loss. Topics covered include the role of binaural processing in sound localization and the detection of signals in noise; comparison of binaural processing for normal and impaired hearing; influence of peripheral abnormalities on binaural processing; and the consequences of abnormal binaural processing for the ability to understand speech, especially in background noise.

Keywords:   binaural hearing, spatial hearing, localization, lateralization, binaural masking level difference, diotic advantage
