Two profoundly deaf patients were evaluated using the Minimal Auditory Capabilities (MAC) battery of speech discrimination tests. One patient was a multiple-channel cochlear implant patient (MC1) using a wearable speech-processor, the other a prospective cochlear implant patient using a hearing aid (HA). Results from the MAC battery showed that MC1 received significantly more auditory information via the speech-processor than was provided by the hearing aid to HA. These results indicated that the cochlear implant could be a suitable alternative for HA. However, the results indicated that HA gained some minimal benefit from the hearing aid and these results should be taken into consideration when deciding which ear should be implanted.
