Abstract: A computationally efficient nonuniform digital FIR filter bank is proposed for hearing aid applications. The eight nonuniform spaced subbands are formed with the help of frequency-response masking technique. Two half-band finite-impulse response (FIR) filters are employed as prototypes resulting in significant improvements in the computational efficiency. We show, by means of example, that an eight-band nonuniform FIR filter bank with stopband attenuation of 80 dB can be implemented with 15 multipliers. The performance of the filter bank is enhanced by optimizing the gains for each subband. The tests on various hearing loss cases suggest that the proposed filter achieves reasonable good matching between audiograms and magnitude responses of the filter bank at very low computational cost. © 2005 IEEE.
