Abstract

Many people are distracted from the normal life style, because of the hearing loss they have. Most of them do not use the hearing aids due to various discomforts in wearing it. The main and the foremost problem available in it is; the device introduces unpleasant whistling sounds, caused by the changing environmental noise, which is faced by the user daily. This paper describes the development of an algorithm, which focuses on the adaptive feedback cancellation, that improves the listening effort of the user. The genetic algorithm is one of the computational technique, that is used in enhancing the above features. The performance can also be compared with other comprehensive analysis methods, to evaluate its standards.
