The premise of this study is that models of hearing, in general, and of individual hearing impairment, in particular, can be improved by using speech test results as an integral part of the modeling process. A conceptual iterative procedure is presented which, for an individual, considers measures of sensitivity, cochlear compression, and phonetic confusions using the Diagnostic Rhyme Test (DRT) framework. The suggested approach is exemplified by presenting data from three hearing-impaired listeners and results obtained with models of the hearing impairment of the individuals. The work reveals that the DRT data provide valuable information of the damaged periphery and that the non-speech and speech data are complementary in obtaining the best model for an individual.
