The image to the right is an example of a transient noise sound. It has the characteristic quick, steep rise and short duration (<1 sec).
The compressors will always attempt to apply the optimal gain in every situation based on the design criteria of audibility, intelligibility, preservation of contrast and comfort.
Because there is evidence to suggest that hearing aid users prefer the sound quality generated by a slow acting compression system, the default compression mode in a Widex hearing aid is slow-acting. But there will be situations where slow-acting compressors will not suffice. This is where the TruSound stabilizers help.
The TruSound stabilizers also help preserve the high sound quality expected from the TruSound compression system in demanding situations.
