Auricles

Earglasses II Sound Magnifiers

The Earglasses II Sound Magnifiers are modern day auricles. These are the second version of Earglasses patented by Michael Riley. They came out sometime in 2012.

The picture at the right shows the Earglasses from the side. They fit just behind each ear and function much like a hand cupped around each ear.

The Earglasses were issued US Patent No. 8,122,995 on February 28, 2012 and are also based on his previous patent  No. 4,997,056 issued on March 5, 1991.

The Earglasses II cost $14.95 at http://www.earglasses.com.
