Breebaart [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 1089–1104 (2001)] reported that the masker bandwidth dependence of detection thresholds for an out-of-phase signal and an in-phase noise masker ( ) can be explained by principles of integration of information across critical bands. In this paper, different methods for such across-frequency integration process are evaluated as a function of the bandwidth and notch width of the masker. The results indicate that an “optimal detector” model assuming independent internal noise in each critical band provides a better fit to experimental data than a best filter or a simple across-frequency integrator model. Furthermore, the exponent used to model peripheral compression influences the accuracy of predictions in notched conditions.
