  • Speech perception with Control and Experimental conditions both tested in quiet, in speech-spectrum noise, and in multi-talker babble noise. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Sentence recognition with the new (experimental) and current (control) sound processing strategies will be compared. Subjects will be tested using the AzBio corpus of sentences, which consists of 33 lists of 20 sentences each (6 to 10 words per sentence) that are equated for intelligibility. The difference between the Control percent correct scores and Experimental percent correct scores will be used for the analysis (Experimental AzBio scores minus Control AzBio scores).
  • Device-related adverse events [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Device-related adverse events will be assessed to determine whether they impact current device safety performance.
Administration of AzBio Sentences in recorded format in speech-spectrum noise, multi-talker babble and in quiet. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Interventional
Not Provided
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Severe-to-profound Hearing Loss,
  • in Adult Users of Advanced Bionics HiResolution Bionic Ear System
Device: Sound Processing Strategy for the HiResolution™ Bionic Ear System
Control Condition is currently marketed sound processing strategy. Experimental Condition is newly modified sound processing strategy.
  • Active Comparator: Control - HiRes Fidelity 120
    Initial subject use of Control condition for the first week, followed by subject use of Experimental Sound Processing Strategy for the HiResolution™ Bionic Ear System condition for the second week.
    Intervention: Device: Sound Processing Strategy for the HiResolution™ Bionic Ear System
  • Experimental: Experimental Sound Processing Strategy
    Initial subject use of Experimental Sound Processing Strategy for the HiResolution™ Bionic Ear System condition during first week, followed by subject use of the Control condition for the second week.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Unilateral or bilateral user of CII/HiRes 90K implant(s) (minimum of one year in each implanted ear), Harmony BTE processor(s) with HiRes Fidelity 120 (with or without ClearVoice) as preferred sound processing strategy
  • 18 years of age or older at time of implant
  • Postlingual onset of severe-to-profound hearing loss (≥ 6 years of age)
  • At least moderate open-set speech recognition abilities (defined as CNC word score ≥ 50% in medical records or assessed at the Baseline Visit with implant alone for unilateral users, with both implants together for bilateral users)
  • English language proficiency
  • Willingness to use a Harmony BTE processor and refrain from ClearVoice use for the duration of the study
  • Willingness and ability to participate in all scheduled procedures outlined in the protocol

Exclusion Criteria:

• Presence of any additional disabilities that would prevent or interfere with participation in the required speech perception testing
