Abstract (en)

The device has a source separation device receiving interference signals of sound sources and producing source-specified reception signals, where angle information about a reception angle is provided to the reception signals by the source separation device. A presentation device presents output signals (Q1, Q2) corresponding to input signals. The output signals are presented depending on the reception angle by the presentation device. Control devices (S1, S2) stay in wireless connection with the presentation device. The control devices are integrated in a hearing device-remote control. An independent claim is also included for a method for controlling a hearing device.

Abstract (de)

Die Auswahl von mehreren Schallquellen zur bevorzugten Darbietung soll für Hörhilfeträger komfortabler gestaltet werden. Hierzu ist vorgesehen, die Signale der mehreren aufgenommenen Quellen zu trennen (BSS) und mit einer entsprechenden Steuereinheit (S1, S2) aufeinander folgend darzubieten. Auf Grund der Darbietung kann der Nutzer ebenfalls durch die Steuereinheiten (S1, S2) eines der mehreren Signale zur weiteren Verarbeitung (Sv) auswählen (Dm). Vorzugsweise erfolgt die Auswahl durch Tastendruck oder durch Blicken in Richtung der gewünschten Quelle einschließlich quittierenden Tastendruck.
