New York/Stuttgart – “Hearing Aids, Second Edition,” recently published by Thieme, has been completely revised to reflect the research and technological advances of the last decade. It includes new chapters on directional microphones and the latest digital signal processing strategies and offers extensive coverage of all aspects of open-canal, thin-tube hearing aids.

Praise for the first edition:

“I cannot praise this book too highly — it is undoubtedly now the benchmark text in this area, and is an absolute essential for every audiologist and student.”—Graham Sutton, International Journal of Radiology

"One of the best textbooks I have ever used...written by a researcher with a stellar reputation [who is also] an expert on the clinical aspects of the field...packed with information from both a theoretical and practical perspective...makes difficult concepts comprehensible...from an instructor's point of view, it is a sheer delight." --Adrienne Rubenstein, PhD, Professor, Department of Speech Communication Arts and Sciences, Brooklyn College, New York

Written, comprehensively referenced, and extensively reviewed by leaders in the field, “Hearing Aids, Second Edition,” is ideal as a core graduate text as well as a standard reference for clinicians.
