Objectives: Impaired speech-in-noise perception affects individuals' daily lives and is a frequent symptom of age-related hearing loss, which is a common disabling condition and a health concern in aging populations. The relative impact of hearing sensitivity loss and different cognitive functions on speech-in-noise perception is not well understood. We aimed to assess to what extent hearing sensitivity and different cognitive functions were associated with sentence-in-noise performance across the adult lifespan.
