This paper discusses the distortion of interaural time information
by modern digital hearing aids. It is shown that two popular noise
reduction techniques, namely a directional microphone and an adaptive
directional microphone, are very sensitive to intermicrophone
mismatch which results in the distortion of interaural time information.
This interaural information is crucial for sound localization
and speech perception in noise.
