Patients (N=110) at three different clinics were fitted binaurally with linear, in-the-canal hearing aids. In all patient groups, significant improvement in performance was observed for linear amplification and for base increase at low levels (BILL) processing when compared to unaided performance. There were no significant differences in aided performance, however, between linear processing and the experimental BILL processing. (Author/PB)
