Vacuum Tube Hearing Aids: 1921-1953

Audivox Model 67 (Super) Vacuum Tube Hearing Aid

The Audivox Model 67 was the first hearing aid to carry the Audivox name. Audivox Inc., located in Newton, MA, was previously a division of Western Electric. The Model 67, which was made for Western Electric by Hazeline Mfg. Co., came out in 1950.

This hearing aid weighed 4 oz. without batteries (6¼ oz. with batteries). It measured 3½" x 2½" x ¾".

Top view of the Audivox Model 67 showing the on-off/volume control (bottom left), 3-position tone control—high, normal, low (bottom center) and jack to plug in the receiver cord. This plug was a bit unusual for hearing aids of this era as it looks more like our modern audio plugs rather than the more usual 2-prong plugs of its day.
