As some of you know, I am the owner/curator of “The Hearing Aid Museum”, the largest on-line hearing aid museum in the world. As a result, I’m often asked to identify and/or appraise old hearing aids, and to contribute pictures and information on hearing aids for various publications.
Recently, I was asked to write a piece on the history of hearing aids for the 100th edition of “Signal”, the journal of the Association of Hearing Instrument Practitioners of Ontario. This article was recently published (Winter 2014).
If you are interested in the history of old hearing aids, you may find this article, profusely illustrated with rare and beautiful hearing aids from the Museum, totally fascinating. You can access it from the Museum’s home page, then click on the link in the yellow box.
