Congratulations to Martin Kirchberger who defended his PhD dissertation on December 7th, entitled: “Music Perception with hearing aids”
In brief, his dissertation investigated how hearing loss and hearing aids affect music perception to inform the optimization of hearing-aid technology for music. Two strategies regarding dynamic compression and frequency lowering were developed and proved successful in improving music perception in hearing-impaired listeners.
Martin has many hidden talents. One of these is Alphorn playing. The inset photo was taken moments after the defence at ETH Zurich.
