Abstract

This study compared three methods for evaluating sound localization abilities in normal hearing listeners and listeners with unilateral hearing loss. Rear-facing localization performance with the Direct Connect (DC) Binaural Test System was compared to front- and rear-facing soundfield localization. Behavioral chance performance in rear-facing DC and soundfield testing was established, as well as test-retest reliability for all three localization test setups.
