Nowadays, the pure-tone audiogram alone is used for hearing-aid fitting and characterization of the degree of hearing loss. Nevertheless, some hearing-impaired listeners have shown a socalled speech communication handicap even though the audibility was compensated for by amplification. Plomp (1978) proposed a classification of the hearing loss based on speech intelligibility tests, the “audibility loss” and the “distortion loss”. Therefore, a different fitting strategy may be needed for compensating the deficits of these two different classes. The aim of the present study is to clarify which tests are needed (in addition to the audiogram) to classify the listeners in different hearing profiles.
