The School of Music at the University of Leeds is still seeking participants for research into the music listening experiences of people who use hearing aids.
The project is called “Hearing Aids for Music” and is the first research project of its kind exploring music engagement and enjoyment by hearing aid users (including those with a BAHA device). The team have produced a subtitled video explaining the Hearing Aids for Music project, available on youtube.
The researchers are asking interested participants to complete a 30 minute Hearing Aids for Music survey, which includes an opportunity to enter a draw for 3 prizes of £75 each.
Eligible participants must:
• have a confirmed hearing loss (e.g. mild, moderate, severe or profound),
• use hearing aids for at least an hour a day (including those with Bone Anchored Hearing Aids, but NOT cochlear implant users
• be between 18-90 years old
The team are eager to gather as many responses as possible and participants will be providing new data that will help researchers to better understand and improve the musical experiences of hearing aid users.
The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
You can also download the Hearing aids for music flyer for printing and distribution to other potential participants.
