steady state noise vs fluctuating speech argument that I have seen
before with the zeta noise blocker.</italic>

Paul, <underline>The Hearing Journal</underline> (Vol 49 No 4, April
96) has an explanation of how the Senso works.  You may also want to
read the article by Mike Hall and Robert Sandlin in the May 97 issue of
<underline>The Hearing Journal</underline>.  It provides results from a
clinical study comparing the Senso with digitally programmable analog

<italic>Frankly, when the audiologist who is the rep for widex came by
to demonstrate the senso at our facility all he/she had to say was "I
don't know how it reduces background noise, it just does it."</italic>

I would also recommend the same articles to the Widex rep...
