AcousticEar UFE Electronic Designs, Laguna Hills, Calif, has announced a new hearing aid evaluation tool for audiologists and hearing instrument specialists (patent pending). According to the company, when a clinician listens to a hearing aid through a stethoscope-type listening tool, the high frequency information is lost, and a distorted frequency response is created by the long listening tube. UFE has developed the AcousticEar™ electronic amplifier designed to replace these types of devices. It reportedly includes an adjustable volume control, a hands-free holder for RIC, BTE, and custom aids, dual mini-earbuds, battery, and instructions. For more information, email email@example.com.
