Intelligibility scores were obtained from 12 listeners for monosyllabic words presented monaurally with noises at one or both ears. Release from masking previously reported by Licklider Q. Acoust. Soc. Am. 20, 150-159 (1948)] was confirmed, but sizable differences between right and left ears in the amount of release were not found. However, one listener consistently had about 5% more release for speech at the right than the left ear.
