The Nucleus 24 Cochlear Implant system with the SPrint processor provides access to multiple speech processing strategies and a wide range of programming parameters. Strategy comparison studies have suggested that the optimal parameter set and coding strategy varies from individual to individual. It is necessary, however, to establish some default programming parameters and fitting guidelines. Therefore we have investigated the effect of stimulation rate and the number of channels or maxima in the ACE or CIS strategies, as well as the optimal programming strategy for subjects with a limited number of available electrodes. Speech perception was tested using monosyllabic words and sentences in noise, with the evaluation protocol designed to take into account learning effects. Take-home experience was provided with all programs, and subjects were asked to complete a comparative performance questionnaire regarding program preference. Six or eight subjects were enrolled in each study.
