ABSTRACT
A new research implementation of MP3000™ to improve intermediate pitch percept between electrode contacts has been developed. Several pitch ranking, melody recognition and speech understanding tests were conducted in order to identify the benefit of this research implementation named V-PACE. No significant benefit could be found for speech understanding and melody recognition. Pitch ranking was identified to be significantly better with V-PACE without influencing the speech understanding.
