Frye Introduces FONIX 8000

Frye Electronics Inc, Tigard, Ore, has introduced the FONIX 8000 Hearing Aid Test System, which helps clinicians verify a hearing aid’s directional response pattern (its polar plot)—a measurement that has not typically been available in a clinical environment, according to the company.

In the polar plot sound chamber, the hearing aid is mounted on a rotating spindle in front of the sound chamber speaker. During the test, the 8000 automatically rotates the hearing aid in a 360 degree circle, taking measurements at angles specified by the user. A special damping configuration is used within the sound chamber to minimize acoustic reflections and provide as much accuracy as possible within the small confines of the desktop chamber. Results are displayed in polar plot format on a screen, and can be printed and saved electronically for future reference.
