Speech intelligibility outcomes.

Mean speech reception thresholds (SRT) in noise of the bimodal study group are presented for the six tested conditions. Each condition consisted of a directionality configuration (omnidirectional, asymmetric, symmetric) assessed within two different types of noise (stationary, fluctuating). For comparison, mean speech intelligibility scores of a normal hearing reference group tested in the same set-up are shown. A lower SRT-value represents a better outcome. Significant differences between test conditions are flagged (*p<0.05, **p<0.01, ***p<0.001).
