Abstract- To examine the hypothesis that the newer generations of cochlear implants could provide considerable speech understanding to late-implanted prelingually deaf adult patients. Cochlear implant CI users performance degrades significantly in noisy environments especially in non-steady noisy conditions.Unlike normal hearing listeners. CI users generally perform better when listening to speech in steady-state noise than in fluctuating maskers and the reasons for that are unclear. In this article we propose a new hypothesis for the observed absence of release from masking by CI users. A new strategy is also developed and integrated into existing CI systems to improve speech recognition in noise for CI users.
