    Abstract : The most logical solution if a person has a hearing impairment on both ears, seems to be bilateral bearing aid amplification in both ears. Numerous studies have shown the advantages of this fitting strategy. However, there were always some individuals not benefiting from bilateral hearing aids; until recently a neglected group of persons. READ MORE
