TODAY, Knowles Electronics is the world’s leading provider of microphones, receivers, and electromechanical controls to the hearing health industry. Knowles continues to enhance its leadership position by linking exceptional design with the development of key transducer and electromechanical control technologies that further hearing aid performance, reliability, value, and customer benefit.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE demonstrated by a 2-year long study recently completed at Knowles Electronics found that Ferrofluid™ damping decreased overall receiver warranty returns by over 50% versus standard hearing aid receivers. The study, conducted on over 220,000 Ferrofluid damped receivers, compared overall return rates, receiver failure modes, and receiver reliability to a similar population of standard receivers. Key findings of the study include an overall in-warranty return rate decrease of 50%, a 69% reduction in receiver returns for “medium” sized receivers used in mini-BTE, half-concha, and in-the-canal aids, a 57% reduction in returns due to distorted receiver output, and a 36% decrease in returns related to shock-damaged receivers.
