Procedure for Predicting Real-Ear Hearing Aid Performance in Young Children Direct measures of real-ear hearing aid performance with children are now obtainable using probe-tube microphone systems. Potentially, these systems can significantly reduce both the time and the degree of cooperation required from the child during the hearing aid fitting process. However, there are several problems in using probe-tube microphone systems ... Clinical Focus: Innovation
