Aurilink, Inc. has developed a Âready-to-wearÂ 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 currently available.
ÂWe like to think of the Sound Magnifiers as reading glasses for your ears,Â said Otis A. Whitcomb, President and CEO of Aurilink. ÂWe created our Sound Magnifier hearing instrument s to be ideal for occasional amplification and protection, especially for hunters, birdwatchers, theater and churchgoers, seminar participants, executives, students, and professionalsÂanyone who wants a little hearing enhancement, but who arenÂt ready for expensive custom hearing aids.Â
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 ÂamplifierÂ to Âelectronic hearing protectionÂ, 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:
Â Have trouble with soft speech or whispers
Â Hear but canÂt always understand
Â Find they hear better when they see the speakerÂs face
Â 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 http://www.CobbAudiology.com or call 770-590-8662.
About Aurilink Sound Magnifiers
Aurilink Sound Magnifiers are discreet, soft shell in-canal hearing instrument s. 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.
