Hearing aid modeling with adaptive nonlinear filters
AbstractThe performance of nonlinear adaptive filters in modeling devices with mild and moderately strong nonlinearities such as hearing aids was investigated. The existence on nonlinearities in hearing aids and that nonlinear adaptive filters were better suited for hearing aid modeling compared to their linear counterparts with equal number of filter coefficients. The signal to noise ratio improvement in modeling showed improvements in the range of 5% to 50%. The results suggested that as the nonlinearity of the device becomes stronger, a larger number of nonlinear coefficients should be used.
