New strategies for profiling and fitting

Most fitting strategies rely almost entirely on the audiogram, and if the outcome is unsatisfactory follows a typically unsupported trial-and-error process. The purpose of this work is to study if supplementary hearing tests may provide a stronger basis for the fitting strategy, and which tests that may then be. The most promising candidates for new profiling strategies will be applied for a selected group of users to shed further light on these relations, and to prioritize options for further testing.
