Some years ago I went to a conference on innovations in hearing health care. The presenters included many distinguished researchers in audiologic rehabilitation (AR) however, one speaker, Ken Grant, made a comment as I remember it that has stuck with me all these years. Dr. Grant said that he thought that we approached our understanding of devices all wrong and that if we could get the perception of music right, then improved perception of speech would follow. Music is a dynamic and rich acoustic signal, however the complexity of the signal can pose tremendous challenges for our hearing devices. In recent years a number of advances have been made in the area of amplification of music. In this issue of Perspectives for Sig 7: Aural Rehabilitation and Its Instrumentation, Robert Jenson and Sarah Ferguson offer a thoughtful review of music perception among adult cochlear implant users. They describe processing strategies used in current devices as well as how music is encoded. For those of us not involved in the day-to-day fitting of cochlear implants the paper is a timely tutorial.
