We are currently seeking adults with hearing loss and/or tinnitus to participate in upcoming studies. If you wear hearing aids, have thought about trying hearing aids, suspect you may have a hearing loss, or experience ringing or buzzing sounds in your ears, you may qualify to participate!
All research studies are carried out in our research office in Lisle, IL in a relaxed, one-on-one setting. Study visits typically last about two hours each and are scheduled on a flexible basis. Participants listen to various sounds and speech passages while wearing study hearing aids. They may be asked to listen to soft or loud sounds, repeat words or sentences they hear, or to make judgments on sound quality. They may be asked to fill out questionnaires regarding how well they hear in different situations with and without hearing aids. Comments and opinions regarding the appearance or sound quality of the hearing aids are always encouraged from our participants. Some studies even allow the participants to wear the hearing aids at home!
