Closed-loop feedback cancellation utilizing two microphones and transform domain processing
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we are studying the use of two microphones for acoustic feedback cancellation in hearing aids. With the two microphones approach, an additional microphone is employed toprovide added information bout the signals which is then utilized to obtain an incoming signal estimate. This estimate is removed from the error signal prior to adapting the canceler, thus removing the undesired signal correlation. In this paper, we propose to use orthogonal transforms with the two microphones approach. The discrete Fourier transform and the discrete cosine transform are implemented to transform the adaptive filter signals. Also, a bank of adaptive filters is employed, each adapting to different portions of the spectrum for a finer control of the adaptation process. Simulation results based on real measured feedback paths and speech signals show improved convergence rates and stablesolutions.
