Rechargeable Hearing Aids: Charge every night for a full day of listening.
Introducing: Moxi Fit R. After just 5-7 hours of charging they’re ready to perform for a full 24 hours. Simply pull the rechargeables out and put them on. All of Unitron’s rechargeable solutions are powered by Tempus, the newest platform that is the best in conversations.
Tempus: driving conversations
Tempus is Unitron’s newest platform aimed to help patients solve their biggest complaints around conversations. The extremely high performance of Tempus conquers the listening environments that patients find the most challenging – conversations in noise and crowds.
Unitron’s newest processing platform is North, which provides Unitron hearing aids with improved sound quality and flexibility. With SoundNav, North adapts to many different sound environments, with various classifications of sound. In addition to environmental sound, North provides excellent speech recognition features, with four channels devoted specifically to conversation: conversation in quiet, in a small group, in a crowd, and in noise. North’s Speech Zone 2 and Sound Conductor work together to make automatic adjustments, focusing microphones to capture speakers’ voices and sounds in a variety of environments.
For a full sound picture, Binaural Spatial Processing provides the experience of natural listening capturing sounds binaurally – binaural, meaning both ears. North offers a 101-decibel dynamic range, which gives wearers the experience of natural sound without distortion. Beyond speech recognition and environmental sounds, North takes better hearing a step further. Music lovers will appreciate My Music, designed to capture the intricacies of frequencies in music. In terms of sound frequencies, Frequency Compression balances high and low frequencies for a more balanced experience.
The North Platform is at the center of Unitron’s hearing aids and can be found in newer models.
