Different combinations of microphones and telephones were possible and hence, the first attempts at selection of performance according to subjective choice were made. According to Berger (1984) the Radioear Corporation, in 1935, introduced the first such 'master hearing aid' known as the Selex-aphone. Due to the bulkiness of the microphones and batteries, there was little real possibility of disguising a carbon hearing aid, although the literature produced by some of the companies would suggest that if worn according to their instructions, the instrument could be made completely 20 The historical setting invisible.

Use may be the amount of time that the aid is said to be used on a daily basis, or it may be the amount of time actually used, the two quantities not always being the same. Benefit is defined by Oja and Schow (1984) as the improvement in some measure in the aided condition as compared to the unaided condition. They observe that to be relevant to real life, the measure(s) employed should sample various situations representative of those in which the individual is likely to be using the aid. It is difficult, therefore, in assessing the benefit of hearing-aid amplification, to employ a schema giving a single numerical value whereby individuals or systems can be compared.

In Europe, the concept of socialized medicine was developed and this has had a profound effect on the treatment of the hearing impaired. In the next section, some of the different approaches to service provision for adults with defective hearing will be reviewed. 24 The historical setting (a) England Around a century after William Bull, the business of F.
