Re: maximum sound levels for hearing aid microphones

Hello Dan,

Can anyone tell me what maximum sound levels can be handled by typical
hearing aid microphones?

In my experience Knowles mics tend to distort at levels above 100 dB SPL, but we haven't been able to damage them with sound. Don't know about Sonion.
