ear-gear-acoustically-transparentWe are proud to make a product that not only protects hearing instruments but is completely acoustically transparent so there's no distortion of sound for the wearer. We know this because we put Ear Gear to the test!

Lakeside Hearing conducted the Electro-Acoustic Analysis and this is what they found, proving that our product is acoustically transparent:


A Starkey Destiny 800 BTE (serial number 09-070798) and a Siemens Pure 500 Receiver in the Canal hearing aid (serial number 24057) were used to analyze the acoustic response of hearing aid specifications with and without Ear Gear. The hearing aids were analyzed through real ear measures in a patient’s ear and also in the test box. Overall results show that the Ear Gear is acoustically transparent. There was no reduction in gain at 0 degrees azimuth, or at 90 degrees azimuth during real ear measures. There was also no reduction in average OSLP90, or average gain at 50 dB in the test box.

Full analysis available on request.
