Body Type Transistor Hearing Aids

Sears Model 8094 "Super 94" Transistor (Body) Hearing Aid

The Sears Model 8094 "Super 94" transistor body hearing aid was made for Sears by Oticon of Denmark in 1969.

Sears didn't manufacture their own hearing aids but contracted with various manufacturers to make and brand an aid for them. The Sears Model 8094 was very similar to Oticon's Model 370 series of aids.

This hearing aid measured 2 7/16" x 1⅞ " x ¾" (6.2 x 4.8 x 2.0 cm) and weighed 1.4 oz. (40 g) without the battery.
