We aimed to determine the effect of novel signal processing tool on consonant enhancement in simulated bimodal listening with normal hearing listeners. The consonant enhancement was tested with four different frequency maps: Large Gap, Slight Gap, Meet, and Overlap between upper boundary of acoustic hearing and lower boundary of electric hearing. Greater consonant enhancement is evident with the signal processing than without. Meet frequency map generated the largest bimodal advantage on consonant perception.
