The ability of cochlear implantees to understand speech varies over a wide range. While some implantees achieve scores close to 100 % open set word tests, other require visual cues to achieve a significant score on these tests. The focus of this research is to investigate reasons for the wide range of ability and therefore to improve the speech processors used by individual implantees. This study first investigated whether the relative importance of various frequency regions of the speech spectrum differs for implantees of different performance levels, and for implantee groups compared to normally hearing subjects.
