We expect strong results there.”  Added Vikki MacKay, AIM chief executive officer, “Neuro Kinetics’ products are world class and we are excited to bring them   to Canada.

Audiocups

Noise Excluding Enclosures

Unique noise-excluding enclosures for standard audiometer headphones.

To utilize the full accuracy of an audiometer, threshold measurement must be made in quiet conditions.  When a booth is not available, or is impracticable, noise excluding earphone shells, which completely enclose the outer ear, are obviously desirable.

Sound limiting headphone enclosures
Audiocups limit ambient noise during testing
