AbstractMarshall Chasin, Musicians' Clinics of Canada, shared his views on the relationship between music and hearing aids. Music created several significant problems for the hearing aid design engineer and for the hearing health care professional. Several primary physical differences between speech and music needed to be understood to understand the changes necessary for music as an input to a hearing aid or a cochlear implant. Two factors, such as differing intensities and crest factors played a key role in the setting or selection of hearing aids for music. It was also observed that those hearing aids that were able to handle intense inputs were more suitable for music in comparison to those that were unable to handle such inputs.
