Spatial hearing is surely transformed, but maybay they learned to deal with
their impairements.

In case of full hearing loss at one ear, most of the spatial hearing theory
about monaural listening should apply (see again Blauert on this). But I don't
know any "official" details for specific hearing losses.

Using two functionnal ears give us the chance to reduce the perceived coloration
and reverberation in room, as an example.
