Hearing assistive devices/systems (HADS) are intended to facilitate hearing by providing amplification of an acoustic signal and/or improving the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for the listener. The purpose of this study was to compare and verify the electroacoustic characteristics of HADS with three different Roger transmission arrangements per ANSI/ASA S3.47 standards as well as the transparency of HADS based on 2011 AAA guidelines. Results indicated the critical need of electroacoustic evaluation for HADS.
