The Minimal Auditory Capabilities (MAC) battery was used to evaluate the auditory performance of nine postingual and ten prelingual adults with severe to profound hearing loss. Results suggest that degree of hearing loss overrides relative language skills as the primary factor affecting performance. The MAC battery appears promising as a tool for evaluating and monitoring both prelingual and postlingual adults using conventional hearing aids or cochlear implants.
