Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2164283A2] The method involves electrically interconnecting two microphones (11, 12) with each other for generating signals (R1, R2) with a directional characteristic (RA). Signal components (RAV) of the signals above a threshold frequency in a frequency range are transposed and/or compressed below the threshold frequency. The signal components are added to the signals before end amplification of the signal components. The signal components are added to an omnidirectional microphone signal before the end amplification of the signal components. Independent claims are also included for the following: (1) a hearing aid (2) a computer program product comprising a computer program for executing a method for operating a hearing aid.
