The Federal Communications Commission today said that Sony Mobile will voluntarily make a $400,000 payment after it was found to violate U.S. law requiring devices to be compliant with hearing aids. The FCC discovered that Sony sold non-compliant devices during a 12-month period in 2011 and 2012. In addition to the payment for selling devices that don't work with hearing aids, Sony agreed to name a compliance officer within 30 days and ensure all devices are compliant with U.S. law within 60 days. Sony did not comment on the FCC's decision.
