AbstractThis project creates an easy to use and unobtrusive hearing aid accessory that solves a very common problem for hearing aid users: understanding speech in noisy environments. A common problem amongst hearing aid users is trouble understanding speech while listening to a conversation in environments with competing speech babble noise and other noises such as restaurant conversations, social gatherings, and conversations in busy workplaces or schools. The prototype accessory enhances conversation intelligibility with a directional microphone array that wirelessly transmits audio to the user’s hearing aids.
