The FONIX FA10 and FA12 Audiometers were discontinued on December 31, 2012. Full support including repairs and calibration will be available until at least December 31, 2017. We are currently including the FA10/FA12 in all verification testing of the FONIX NOAH Audiometer Module and WinCHAP.
FONIX Digital Hearing Evaluator
The Modern Audiometer for Dispensers
When you want an audiometer that is very easy to use, stays in calibration beautifully, has a great repair record, and does all the things you want it to do, you should consider the FONIX FA-10 or FA-12 Hearing Evaluator.
You can walk right up to either of these audiometers, and if you know anything about testing hearing, you won’t have any trouble learning how to use it. No clicking on this or that. No menus or sub-menus. The audiometers are digital inside, and that is one reason that they stay in calibration so well. But the interface consists of knobs and buttons that are straight forward and easy to use. Need masking? Select the type you want with a knob. Narrow band, white noise, and speech noise are available. If you want to warble and/or pulse the pure tone, just push the buttons. No problem.
Dual Calibration Available
With more and more people using insert earphones, we are delivering many audiometers with inserts only. However, we still deliver units with the conventional headphones, and we can produce a unit with dual calibration so you can use whatever transducer is appropriate for the circumstances.
NOAH 3 Compatibility
The ability to connect to a computer is added when the RS232 Option is included with the audiometer. Use the FONIX NOAH Module to remotely perform most audiometric measurements from NOAH. You can turn on the stimulus and select the frequency, amplitude, input, output, and hearing aid simulator selections from the NOAH window. Alternately, put the FONIX NOAH Module in Listen mode to establish a real-time connection with the audiometer. When in this mode, the graph on the NOAH screen updates test results with the current frequency and amplitude selections on the audiometer whenever the stimulus button is pressed. This is great for those users who prefer the knobs and dials on the audiometer but who enjoy the convenience of the computer connection to automatically record test results. The FONIX NOAH Module has been officially certified by HIMSA!
More Standard Features
The Hearing Simulator lets your client listen to up to four different frequency responses.
Included: Stenger, ABLB, MLB and SISI
(Alternate Binaural Loudness Balance, Monaural Loudness Balance, and Short Increment Sensitivity Index)
Use the built-in microphone for speech testing and talk over functions.
Unusually Complete Monitor Function
When you purchase the optional stereo monitor headset, the boom microphone/headset accessory, or the monitor speakers, you can hear all signals that reach the client’s ear in your corresponding ear. Controls on the Hearing Evaluator allow you to set these signals at a comfortable level. And if you use a talkback microphone, you will, of course, also hear your client’s voice through your monitor. If your client presses the optional patient response switch, you will hear a click/tone in your monitor headset. (The patient response LED on the Hearing Evaluator will also light up.)
Custom Lightweight Sound Field Speakers
The optional high-efficiency sound field speakers also fit into the carrying case and add very little weight. It is not necessary to purchase an additional amplifier for these speakers. The amplifier in the Hearing Evaluator will drive them to 85 dB HL at 1000 Hz when the client is located three feet from the speaker. Each sound-field frequency can be independently calibrated in HL.

FA-10 and FA-12 audiometers are identical units except that the FA-12 has a plus 10 dB button, while the FA-10 has an Output Reverse button so that the operator can use the same hand when conducting tests on both the right and left ear. Since the audiometer standards are the same for both ANSI and ISO, it is only necessary to tell us which instrument you want and specify the voltage.
