Bluetooth is a radio-wave technology designed to communicate over short distances. Bluetooth connectivity in your hearing aids
allows you to connect your hearing aids to other Bluetooth-enabled technologies, like your smartphone.
Fueled by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, rechargeable hearing aids
can be plugged in when not in use. You can reuse the same batteries over and over without having to throw them away.
Voice Recognition Technology
recognizes and processes your voice separately from other voices and sounds. This allows your voice to sound much more natural than previously possible when you hear yourself speak with a hearing aid.
A directional microphone
picks up sound from a single direction but can automatically change the direction it is pointing based on speech and sound signals. This allows you to move comfortably between environments with varying noise levels and understand speech more clearly.
A Telecoil (or T-Coil) is a component within the hearing aid that allows the user to utilize various assistive listening systems
(ALS). ALSs are used in spaces such as movie theaters and even on landline phones to stream sound directly to your hearing aids.
Digital noise reduction automatically filters out background noise and brings the sounds you want to hear, like your partner’s voice, to the foreground.
Echo reduction is a technology designed to reduce echo in reverberant settings, like church or a museum hall.
surpasses prior wind noise reduction technology. In addition to blocking wind noise when you’re outdoors, it also amplifies the sounds you want to hear and aids in spatial perception. That way you have an even better idea of where sound is coming from.
Tinnitus control is a function that can be turned on and off to provide tinnitus relief
specifically tuned to your hearing.
MECROS and BiCROS are hearing solutions for individuals with unilateral hearing loss. When you have untreatable hearing loss in one ear, CROS and BiCROS technologies
help to transmit sound to your better hearing ear.
Binaural Wireless 3.0 is our latest binaural technology. Hearing aids with binaural wireless technology
communicate with each other to help assist you in accurately hearing where sound is coming from. This is particularly useful in noisy environments and when streaming media directly to your hearing aids.
Direct audio streaming allows you to stream audio directly to your hearing aids from connected devices, like a smart phone or home entertainment system. This helps clarify the sound you hear by cutting out the need for it to travel through the air.
Channels are filters that cover certain frequencies of sound. Each channel treats that band of frequencies as the same incoming sound. It then processes, analyzes, and reproduces that band in the same manner. Generally speaking, the more channels available, the more nuanced sound you receive from your hearing aid.
Many modern hearing aids connect to an app, such as the Miracle-Ear App
, which allows you to control certain aspects of your hearing aid through your smartphone. This lets you do things like adjust the volume or switch between personal hearing programs.
The integrated motion sensor
detects when you are moving to analyze your changing needs more accurately in different environments.
focuses resources on the frequencies where human speech usually occurs. This allows your hearing aid to isolate someone speaking to you and more clearly amplify the conversation.
Extended bandwidth is an enhanced sound processing feature that covers a wider range of frequencies than normal.
Remote control connectivity means that your hearing aid can be adjusted with a dedicated remote control for convenience and ease of operation.
Hearing programs are different settings that are specially fitted to your hearing needs in different environments. You can cycle through your hearing programs to match your hearing needs in various situations.
Intuitive Sound Processing adjusts your hearing aid to find the optimal balance between sounds in front of and all around you. It responds to your movements and changes in environment to deliver natural sound and speech in any direction and situation.
