This study investigated how older adults with a significant hearing loss perform immediately after being fit with new amplification from Widex, Phonak, and Oticon by administering the QuickSIN and COSI. The subjects were either inexperienced or experienced older hearing aid technology users. Comparisons were made between the unaided and aided conditions and among three hearing aids. Individual differences and their impact on the speech in noise results were analyzed and subjective results were compared to the objective results.
