Hearing aids provide a huge benefit for our patients with hearing losses. However, one common patient complaint is that sounds originate from within the head. This perception often leads to sounds being lateralized instead of localized. The loss of spatial location is a disadvantage because when sound sources cannot be separated, our brain will have difficulty focusing on the signal of interest. Adding spatial cues back into hearing aid signal processing improves sound quality and localization further increasing the naturalness of listening with hearing aids.
