Single sided deafness diminishes speech understanding in noise and sound localization and thereby globally auditory performance. Most patients also suffer from tinnitus and indicate reduced quality of life. Patients have the choice to adapt to the new situation without treatment, to restore pseudostereophonic hearing by contralateral routing of signal (CROS) hearing aids or to restore binaural hearing using a cochlear implant in the deaf ear. This article summarizes the physiological base of binaural hearing and treatment options for single sided deafness with a special emphasis on the cochlear implant.
