The importance of personalized and adaptable user-interfaces has been extensively discussed (European Ambient Assisted Living Innovation Alliance, 2009; Alexandersson et al., 2009). However, it often remains unclear how to specifically implement such concepts. In the field of acoustic communication, existing models and technologies offer a wide range of possibilities. Based on these technologies, this chapter presents a concrete realization of a model-based interface in the field of acoustic human-computer interaction. The core element of the implementation is a holistic approach towards a hearing perception model, which incorporates information of the acoustic environment, the context and the user himself provides relevant information for control and adjustment of adaptable and personalized acoustic user interfaces. In principle, this way of integrating state-of-the-art technologies and models into user interfaces could be applied to other sensory perceptions as e.g. vision.
