5 (range: 4–10). Five percent (5 of 50) preferred their conventional strategies at the end of phase II. 3 (range: 1–8). Notably, at 12 months after initial stimulation (6 months after the end of phase II), 48 of 50 patients (96%) preferred HiRes. Figure 6 shows the comparison of benefit in a variety of listening situations for the 45 patients who preferred HiRes. Figure 7 shows that same breakdown of benefit, but for the 12 patients with the highest CNC scores (170%) at the end of phase II. 3 (range: 8–10).
During those parameter evaluations, no feedback was provided. In addition, patients were assessed with the Iowa Consonant Test (in quiet and noise) on each of the 3 days using their preferred conventional strategy (after a daily acclimation period).
