This chapter describes the types of signal processing used in hearing aids to compensate for cochlear hearing loss. Topics covered include limitations of conventional hearing aids; general problems with hearing aids; schemes based on compensation for specific auditory deficits such as loudness recruitment and reduced frequency selectivity; schemes based on speech feature enhancement, more general schemes for enhancing signal-to-noise ratio, including directional microphones; and future directions.

Keywords:   compression, automatic gain control, spectral enhancement, directional microphones
