The existence of a 'reverse cocktail party' effect for certain dichotic listening configurations that involve more than two competing talkers was analyzed. The experiment was conducted with the Coordinate Response Measure (CRM) for communications research, a call-sign based color and number identification task. The listeners participated in the experiment while seated at the CRT of a control computer in a quiet listening room. It was shown that when the level of the target phrase was 8 dB higher than the first masker, performance was near 90% in both of the spatial conditions.
