Participants will complete a hearing test, a cognitive screener, a test of hearing aid function, a questionnaire of hearing aid benefit and a task where listeners must detect pitch differences in sounds. Participation is expected to last about one and a half to two hours and will take place at the Evelyn Hendren Cassat Speech-Language Hearing Clinic.

Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria:

  • Participants must be age 18 years or older
  • Must have hearing loss
  • Must be a current hearing aid user
