Editorial Reviews


This type of book could easily find a niche with Audiologists or hearing-aid dispensers...with some refocusing, it could easily become a classroom text or clinical reference guide to hearing aid fittings. - Jeffrey DiGiovanni, PhD, Ohio University

Venema's text covers compression in more depth than Dillon's text, and Venema covers the topic in a format that is easy to understand. Venema presents a difficult topic in a user-friendly format. - Rebecca Henning, PhD, University of Wisconsin

I think this would be a great required book for hearing aid dispensers to read prior to being licensed. I don't have any text that covers compression this thoroughly. I think this is a very good book that thoroughly covers an aspect of hearing aids that is often not clear to many audiologists and dispensers. It is written in a language that is easy to read and understand. - Sarah Hickey, McIntire Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic

It's very user friendly, but I think case reviews would make it a better teaching tool. The strength is the simple writing, which clearly makes the points. It's brevity is good, as it's not overwhelming. The vision for the revision is good, but I think if it includes a few more technology topics it will be even more valuable. - Teri A. Hamill, Ph.D., Nova Southeastern University

Format: Paperback
Basic information on compression would like more information of direction microphones and other options for hearing aids.

Format: Paperback
Un ottimo manuale che tutte le persone che lavorano nel settore audioprotesico dovrebbero leggere. Semplice, chiaro, per tutti. Peccato per la troppa fiducia nel protesizzare (negli esempi) ipoacusie a normoudenza nei gravi con protesi pretimpaniche cic.
