KUDUwave 5 Changelog

KUDUwave 5 Updates. 

KUDUwave 5 is the result of almost 10 years of software development offering a clean, simple and efficient interface. 
Like KUDUwave audiometers, KUDUwave 5 combines best-in-class technologies to help speed up common tasks without compromising on quality or speed.
