The Amplification Lab at the University of Washington focuses on improving outcomes for hearing aid users, particularly speech understanding in noisy environments. While we conduct both basic and applied research, we are motivated by issues we see in the clinic on a daily basis.

The facilities of the Amplification Lab include:
  • Sound-treated booth
  • Audiometer and tympanometer
  • Audioscan Verifit
  • Hearing aid programming software
  • Knowles Electronics Manikin for Acoustic Research (KEMAR)
  • PC-based computers
  • High-quality speakers and headphones
