Experimental results for magnetic field influence on the ultrasonic anisotropy in magnetic fluids are reported. The measurements have been carried out for the frequency 3.37 MHz, at the temperature 20$^{\circ}$C and magnetic field of strength B = l00mT, 200 mT and 500mT. The results were analyzed in terms of Gotoh/Chung theory and Taketomi theory. The former was found to exhibit a lack of inner consistency while the latter gives reliable values of the physical parameters obtained by best-fit procedure.
