Hearing Systems

Head of Section: Torsten Dau

Our research is concerned with auditory signal processing and perception, speech communication, audiology, objective measures of the auditory function, computational models of hearing, hearing instrument signal processing and multi-sensory perception.

Our goal is to increase our understanding of the human auditory system and to provide insights that are useful for technical and clinical applications, such as speech recognition systems, hearing aids, cochlear implants as well as hearing diagnostics tools.

Part of our research is carried out at the Centre for Applied Hearing Research (CAHR) in collaboration with the Danish hearing aid industry. More basic hearing research on auditory cognitive neuroscience and computational modeling is conducted in our Centre of Excellence for Hearing and Speech Sciences (CHeSS), in collaboration with the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR). We also have a research unit at the new Copenhagen Hearing and Balance Centre (CHBC) located at Rigshospitalet, which enables us to closely collaborate with the clinical scientists and audiologists.

In parallel, we are involved in several EU supported international research networks on hearing science and technology, the Danish large-scale project on ‘Better Hearing Rehabilitation in Denmark’ (BEAR) as well as the international synergy project on ‘Uncovering hidden hearing loss’.

We have exciting lab facilities, including our Audiovisual Immersion Lab (AVIL), a Physiology Lab, a Psychoacoustics Lab, and a Communication Lab.
