Keywords:hearing aid? audio receivers? OEMs?

Molex Inc. has announced its Balanced Armature audio receivers intended for the hearing-aid market. Measuring 80mm3, the receivers claim to provide up to 20 per cent space savings versus similar competitive products and up to 75 per cent versus dynamic receivers. The technology also offers substantially more sound output per unit size and cleaner mid-range sound compared to dynamic-style receivers, stated the firm.

"Many people who need a hearing aid don't pursue getting one because they think it will be a big, uncomfortable device," said Anthony Kalaijakis, strategic medical market manager, Molex. "By combining our precision manufacturing capabilities and audio business expertise, we provide audio OEMs with the ability to cost effectively design products half the size of traditional hearing aids yet with superior sound output and quality."

Balanced armature receivers from Molex are customisable, allowing OEMs to adjust the impedance or other specifications to meet specific requirements. Besides applications in hearing aids, Balanced Armatures can be used for cardiac rhythm disease management devices, where they can also more efficiently transform energy into sound, helping to save or extend battery life. In addition to hearing aids, the technology is ideal for the premium in-ear earphone market, where manufacturers are looking to design higher-performing, smaller and more attractively-designed earphones.
