The tables below present median results on the evaluation dataset for the initial MBSTOI evaluation for noise (eval-noise) and speech (eval-speech) interferers, and the listening test results for 27 hearing-impaired listeners for noise (eval-noise) and speech (eval-speech) interferers. Links to the system reports are also provided.
