Aurilink has developed a soft, comfortable sound amplifier for those who need occasional hearing assistance because of mild hearing loss, with programmable settings for a variety of listening environments.
(PRWEB) March 18, 2005 -- Aurilink, Inc. has developed a “ready-to-wear” sound
amplifier for individuals who want and need occasional hearing assistance
due to mild hearing loss. Such assistance was previously only available with
expensive custom hearing aids, but preliminary studies have shown that the
Aurilink Sound Magnifier is equal or superior to the most advanced DSP (digital
signal processing) hearing instruments
“We like to think of the Sound Magnifiers as reading glasses for your ears,” said Otis A. Whitcomb, President and CEO of Aurilink. “We created our Sound Magnifier hearing instruments to be ideal for occasional amplification and protection, especially for hunters, birdwatchers, theater and churchgoers, seminar participants, executives, students, and professionals—anyone who wants a little hearing enhancement, but who aren’t ready for expensive custom hearing aids.”
All Aurilink Sound Magnifiers contain a programmable four-channel digital signal processor and a 3-D microphone. The DSP offers the wearer a selection of programs, from “amplifier” to “electronic hearing protection”, suitable for a wide range of listening environments. The 3-D microphone is a modified pressure-zone microphone, common in the professional audio industry. This microphone allows a depth-of-field and directionality previously unavailable in the hearing instrument industry.
The sound amplifiers are made with the soft, flexible 21st Century SoftEar technology. The soft shell housing discreetly snuggles into the ear canal, creating a better seal to minimize feedback, and unlike hard shell hearing instruments, the soft Aurilink Sound Magnifier flexes rather than shifts when the jaw moves.
The Aurilink Sound Magnifier is perfect for people who:
• Have trouble with soft speech or whispers
• Hear but can’t always understand
• Find they hear better when they see the speaker’s face
• Often need to have things repeated
All Sound Magnifiers come with a one-year limited warranty as well as a risk-free 30-day home trial. Free shipping is available for a limited time. For more information on the Aurilink Sound Magnifiers, visit www.CobbAudiology.com or call 770-590-8662.
About Aurilink Sound Magnifiers
Aurilink Sound Magnifiers are discreet, soft shell in-canal hearing instruments. They are composed of high quality digital sound processors and microphones capable of receiving sounds in the speech frequency range (250Hz-6000Hz). These sounds are magnified by up to 30dB, then delivered into the ear canal through the receiver. The Aurilink Sound Magnifier may not be suitable for those whose hearing loss exceeds 50dB at 500, 1000, or 2000Hz.
About Aurilink, Inc.
Aurilink was founded in 1998 to provide affordable hearing instruments to people of all ages. The developers of the Aurilink Sound Magnifiers are university-trained audiologists and engineers, and have spent thousands of hours testing and counseling patients with hearing loss and fitting and dispensing hearing instruments.
