Most commercial companies currently produced non-programmable digital hearing aids. The key feature of this hearing aids was adopting the WDRC amplification method in ITE (in-the-ear) type hearing aids. They were equipped with the 2-3 trimmers and could be controlled for gain levels, frequency response curves, or OSPL90 properties. The price of the non-programmable hearing aid was relatively lower than programmable ones while the noise reduction and acoustic feedback detection/control were limited in non-programmable ones. This report was for the cases where background noise and internal noise were decreased with compression thresholds in non-programmable digital hearing aids without noise reduction algorithms or expansion functions, which were commonly built in programmable digital hearing aids.
Key Words: Compression threshold (CT)·Background noise·Non-programmable hearing aid·Digital hearing aid.
