According to a 1981 article in the Otolaryngology journal, a battery of tests using speech materials was created to study the auditory perception skills of five subjects with profound hearing loss. Three subjects used cochlear implants and two subjects used hearing aids. Subjects with hearing aids did profoundly better than subjects with implants.
