AbstractThis work presents a brief review on hearing with cochlear implants with emphasis on music perception. Although speech perception in noise with cochlear implants is still the major challenge, music perception is becoming more and more important. Music can modulate emotions and stimulate the brain in different ways than speech, for this reason, music can impact in quality of life for cochlear implant users. In this paper we present traditional and new trends to improve the perception of pitch with cochlear implants as well as some signal processing methods that have been designed with the aim to improve music perception. Finally, a review of music evaluation methods will be presented.
