Behind the Ear (BTE) Transistor Hearing Aids

Vicon OE-45 Behind-the-Ear Hearing Aid

The Vicon OE-45 hearing aid was manufactured by the Vicon Instrument Co. in Colorado Springs, CO.

Vicon was a latecomer in the hearing aid business. It only started to produce hearing aids in 1955.

This model shown here was made in 1961. It is typical of a number of early BTE hearing aids with external receivers.
