Question about latency in CI comprehension

Dear List,

while working with cochlear implants (CI) I often notice that even CI
listeners with very good speech perception need some extra time (in
comparison to normal hearing listeners) to comprehend a spoken sentence.
In fact, some patients with single-sided deafness and CI in the deaf ear
report a perceived latency between the normal hearing and the CI side,
which does not seem to be of technical nature.

Could any of you point me to relevant literature or published studies
related to this phenomenon?

Thank you!
