This month’s blog reviews a newly published article from Crogan and colleagues*. The authors discussed a project investigating the quality of music perception through hearing aids. Various factors related to the patient and hearing aid signal processing were found to be meaningful. We offer clinical advice relative to optimizing a music listening memory for patients that present themselves as music aficionados.
