In blind source separation of speech signals, the inherent imbalance in the source spectrum poses a challenge for methods that rely on single-source dominance for the estimation of the mixing matrix. We propose an algorithm based on the directional sparse filtering (DSF) framework that utilizes the Lehmer mean with learnable weights to adaptively account for source imbalance. Performance evaluation in multiple real acoustic environments show improvements in source separation compared to the baseline methods.
