Hearing Industries Association (HIA) has that type of information
most manuf are members of HIA. Serge Kochkin (sp?) does
reports in the Hearing Journal using HIA information.
Try some old HJ issues or contact the HIA.
The two major players world wide, as far as I know
are Starkey and Siemens, as far as ITE-ITCs are conerned.
If you get into BTEs it is a whole different enchilada
with Oticon and Unitron becoming involved. I was shown
a breakdown of who is number one in what about a year ago
so the actual info is kind of fuzzy now.
And now for something completely different!
BTW, I graduate tomorrow!!!! MS in Audiology, I will
be starting the Ph.D. program in the fall.
Anyone up for a discussion on the tonotopic plasticity
of the central auditory system?
(I am working on a topic!)
