Behind the Ear (BTE) Transistor Hearing Aids

Oticon 567 U Behind-the-Ear Transistor Hearing Aid

The Oticon 567 U BTE hearing aid was manufactured by Oticon A/S in Denmark in 1970.

There were actually four versions—the SX series for severe hearing losses, the U and UX series for moderate losses, and the PC series for mild losses.

The UX and SX sub-models incorporated a ceramic microphone instead of the standard magnetic microphone used in the U and PC versions. The ceramic microphone amplified the low frequencies more than the magnetic microphone did.

Notice the green dot (middle) on the hearing aid. The U and UX versions had a green dot, the SX version had a red dot, and the PC version had a blue dot.
