It is well known that normal hearing listeners can better understand speech in noise when listening with two ears rather than with only one. Differences between the signals at the two ears allow the speech and noise to be separated based on their spatial locations resulting in improved intelligibility. It is the goal of this project to exploit these binaural advantages by developing speech enhancement algorithms that jointly enhance the speech received by the two ears. [ more information ]

The ELOBES2019 workshop: Optimising Binaural Hearing for Environment and Listener took place on 12 January 2019, Het Pand Congress Centre, Ghent, Belgium. This was a satellite workshop of the 11th Speech-in-Noise Workshop.
