Prediction of Most Comfortable Loudness Levels in Hearing Aid Evaluation Most comfortable loudness levels (MCLs) are used to determine the gain required in hearing aids. The relationship between MCL and the midpoint between pure-tone threshold and threshold of discomfort was evaluated to see if the MCL could be predicted from the midpoint values.

Most comfortable loudness levels (MCLs) are used to determine the gain required in hearing aids. The relationship between MCL and the midpoint between pure-tone threshold and threshold of discomfort was evaluated to see if the MCL could be predicted from the midpoint values. The range of differences between midpoint and MCL precluded making such predictions.
