The new Aurical
by Otometrics
05
More flexible, efficient
and convincing than ever
The new AURICAL supports the relationship between
you and your clients and gives you both confidence
You can hide it. You can flaunt it. You can place it where you want it. And you can take it with you
on the go. You can use it all together. Or separate it as you please. It lets you say goodbye once and
for all to inflexible design and hello to a modular way of thinking.
It’s based on the experiences of more than 15,000 users of the original AURICAL. It has everything
you need: A dedicated fitting audiometer. A wireless and binaural Probe Microphone Measurements
(PMM) unit. Effective counseling tools. And a HIT box that works independently – or with the other
components. The intuitive OTOsuite software integrates it all and supports the entire fitting process.
All in all the new AURICAL provides you with a unique combination of intuitive tools that enable you
to work in a professional and convincing manner helping your clients understand and appreciate the
decisions and choices you make together.
07
It’s flexible
The ultimate freedom
Fully integrated. Completely modular. Place it where it suits
you – or take it with you. Use the audiometer and the HIT
box with the speaker and the wireless Probe Microphone
Measurement (PMM) unit – or use them separately if
you prefer. You can send one module for service and still
use the rest. You can add additional components as your
practice grows. And you can customize the OTOsuite
software – easily – to suit your fitting routines. The new
AURICAL adjusts to your workplace and your way of
working – not the other way around.

binaural. HIT is easy to work with and easy to handle.
Replace single tasks with customized sequential processes.
Use practical FitAssist tools to make fitting easier and
quicker – without compromising quality. Make testing and
programming hearing instruments an integral part of your
workflow. Store all your data in the intuitive OTOsuite
software. Benefit from seamless integration and uniform
appearance and routines. Discover a whole new dimension
in efficiency and ease with the remarkably user-friendly and
advanced new AURICAL.

Flexible and easy-to-use
Adapts to your needs – every time
AURICAL was designed with your needs in mind:
Saving space, placing equipment where you need it,
moving it around or taking it with you on home visits.
And because the AURICAL components work both
together and independently, one person can take care
of HIT or coupler based fitting, while another works
with audiometry, counseling or PMM. AURICAL’s
unique modularity takes it all into account.
The new AURICAL solution provides almost unlimited
flexibility. It’s both a complete solution and an impressive
collection of stand-alone components. You decide. Either
way, the OTOsuite software brings it all together into a single
flexible, efficient and convincing fitting tool.
THE FACTS
• Flexible mounting options: Speaker on VESA arm,
Audiometry unit on wall and under desk
• Separate modules allow simultaneous use by
different hearing care professionals
• Add modules as your clinic grows
• Plan your equipment investments
• Portable and lightweight

lightweight design lets you bring
it with you on home visits or move
it between offices with ease.
Clinic 1
Use AURICAL in a clinic with a fitting area and separate
sound booth. Place the speaker and the FreeFit in the
fitting area, run a few cables through the wall of the sound
booth, and place the audiometer where you need it – inside
the booth and close to the client – for best access to the
transducers.
Clinic 2
Use AURICAL in a clinic with an office for fitting and
counseling and a dedicated audiometry suite. Place the
complete AURICAL system in the fitting and counseling
office. Place a separate audiometer in the audiometry suite.
The OTOsuite software binds it all together.
VESA arm: Mounting the
AURICAL Speaker on the
VESA arm, (with or without
the audiometer) saves space.
Clinic 3
Use AURICAL in a clinic with a single workspace. Place all
the components together for maximum functionality in the
least amount of space.

Aurical Plus does the job
– More than 12,000 installed worldwide
With more than 12,000 installed systems worldwide, it’s no
wonder Aurical Plus has become the gold standard for
audiologic diagnostics and hearing instrument testing,
fitting, and programming. At Otometrics, we are committed
to evolving the AURICAL family of products – this means
that AURICAL Plus now gives you more benefits than ever
before – in a scalable fitting solution for small and large settings.
Your best friend in fitting
Aurical Plus is the natural hub of a contemporary fitting
system thanks to continuous development over the last
decade. Today we are proud to offer an up-to-date fitting
system that has all the features and functionality you need
and is part of a family of products that will continue to
evolve.
Today’s AURICAL Plus consists of:
• A two-channel audiometer, including special tests, historical comparison, HL/SPL audiometry, user tests and more
• HIT supporting today’s test standards
• Classic REM features
• Coupler based fitting
• DSL v5.0b and updated stimuli
• Data and workflow integration capabilities
(NOAH, EMR, XML, electronic reporting, etc.)

In-situ or coupler based fitting
We all know that measurements are necessary to get
confident fitting results and satisfied customers.
AURICAL guides you to the goal in an intuitive manner.
You can carry out your fitting according to validated fitting prescriptions such as NAL NL1 and DSL v5.0b, or can
freely define your own prescriptions. Measurements can
be performed in-situ with the dual REM/SPL headset or
our 2cc coupler using RECD, so you can easily fit hearing
instruments on young children or other patient groups, for
example, those with severe to profound hearing loss.
Quick and accurate hearing instrument testing
With the HIT module, you can test hearing instruments
quickly and accurately inside the built-in test chamber.
Full test protocols according to IEC/ANSI or partial tests
give you flexibility in collecting information according to
your needs and make your testing and troubleshooting
quick and easy to document.
About the DSL v5.0b
The DSL v5.0b algorithm improves on earlier versions
by allowing for fine-tuned fitting for three populations: infants, children, and adults. In particular it has
been enhanced to handle ABR, with conversion of
nHL to eHL for more accurate estimation of thresholds. Additionally, different hearing losses are supported by providing correction for mixed and
conductive types. The latest update includes DSL
v5.0b and adds a new stimulus type for use with
DSL. This is one of many examples of Otometrics’
commitment to providing continuity to the end user.

New and unique feature:

to clearly demonstrate the
difference between different
hearing aids.
Probe Microphone Measurements
have never been easier
When we set out to design AURICAL FreeFit, we
wanted to develop a fitting solution that would give
more capabilities, more accuracy and more confidence, without complicating the way you work. We
knew that this meant going beyond traditional REM
– so we designed the FreeFit which combines all the
benefits of Probe Microphone Measurements (PMM)
in a single, ease-to-use device.
Therefore, it is the natural evolution of the
AURICAL Plus traditional in-situ fitting approach.
AURICAL FreeFit covers the patient journey from counselling to fitting and verification, and on to benefit
assessments of hearing aid features. And it lets you
do all this without having to significantly change the
way you work. Probe Microphone Measurements have
never been easier.
Four unique elements
AURICAL FreeFit gives you four unique elements
within Probe Microphone Measurements (PMM)
– Dynamic REM, Speech Mapping, FitAssist tools and
FreeStyle. By combining these, you’ll be able to FIT
with true precision the first time, SHOW the real difference between different hearing aids, and WORK with
newfound freedom and efficiency.
