The purpose of the current experiments was to examine the effects of increasing signal bandwidth for individual speaker identification in competing noise conditions. Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of increasing spectral bandwidth on individual speaker recognition in various signal-to-noise ratios. Results showed that increasing the spectral bandwidth from 3 to 10 kHz significantly improved listener ability to identify the speaker for sentences and h(Vowel)d signals.
