IMPORTANT: Hearing aids are medical devices that require the clinical expertise of an Audiologist or Hearing Aid Audiologist to perform a comprehensive hearing assessment and verification of fitting. This is to ensure the hearing aids have been correctly and optimally programmed to suit your individual hearing loss, ear acoustics and listening needs. Additionally, some of the technological features described may not be as effective or suitable depending upon the severity and nature of your hearing loss. A fully qualified and registered Audiologist or Hearing Aid Audiologist will be able to advise accordingly.

Artificial Intelligence Premium
[+]
The hearing aids automatically analyse and adapt in multiple listening environments to provide the best possible listening experience.

[+] The two hearing aids combine to more effectively analyse and adapt in multiple listening environments to provide the best possible listening experience.

Channels 16

The hearing aid ‘splits’ and ‘separates’ incoming sound into its different frequencies before processing each frequency channel independently based on the listening environment, listening needs and hearing loss of the individual. This helps provide a higher resolution and more natural sound quality.

Gain Handles 16

This relates to the number of frequency channels that can be adjusted to personalise the hearing aid to your specific hearing loss, listening needs and ear acoustics to help provide a more natural and crisper sound quality.

Programmes 4

For a more personalised fitting the hearing aids can be adjusted and specifically programmed for different listening environments, such as music, outdoors, party, restaurant etc.

Modulation Based Noise Management No Reduces unwanted background noise in noisy situations to provide sound comfort.
TriState Noise Management Yes More accurately distinguishes noise from speech compared to modulation based noise management before reducing it to help reduce listening effort and improve speech understanding.
Binaural TriState Noise Management Yes The two hearing aids combine to even more accurately detect and effectively reduce unwanted background noise in noisy situations to reduce listening effort and improve speech understanding.
Spatial Noise Management Yes

The two hearing aids compare speech and noise levels before focusing on the hearing aid where there is greater speech compared to noise to help reduce listening effort.

Soft Speech Booster Yes Provides a boost to quiet high-frequency sounds to improve speech clarity and understanding for softly spoken people.
Speech Guard E Yes The hearing aid provides more amplification for medium and loud speech in quiet to reduce listening effort and improve speech understanding, before reducing the level of loud sounds when in background noise for better listening comfort.
Binaural Processing Yes

The hearing aids exchange information to more accurately locate and separate different sounds in the environment to provide better spatial (3D) awareness.

Binaural Synchronisation Yes

The hearing aids synchronise certain features to more accurately locate and separate different sounds in the environment to provide better spatial (3D) awareness.

Binaural Coordination Yes

Volume adjustments and program changes made on one hearing aid are automatically transferred to the opposite hearing aid.

Binaural Phone Operation Yes

Telephone conversation is automatically streamed into both hearing aids simultaneously to boost speech understanding.

YouMatic Premium

Can compare different sound profiles and select the most preferred for a better and more personalised sound quality.

FreeFocus Premium

The hearing aid can compare directionality modes before selecting the one that best focuses and highlights speech in background noise.

Back Dir Yes

The hearing aid can ‘reverse’ focus to hear speech from behind you, useful for situations like for example in the car.

Transient Management Yes

Instantly dampens sudden loud sounds that occur in the environment so that they are not uncomfortable.

Extended Bandwidth Yes

A boost of high-frequency sound up to 10 kHz to provide more crispness and brightness to music.

VC Learning Yes

Manual volume adjustments made are learned by the hearing aid and automatically applied.

Inium Feedback Shield Yes

Eliminates unwanted whistling from the hearing aid.

Tinnitus SoundSupport™ Yes

Helps the brain become distracted from tinnitus by instead listening to a selection of ocean sounds.

Manual Adaptation Manager Yes

The hearing aid can be manually increased in volume by set amounts gradually over a specified period of time to help listeners gradually adapt and acclimatise to wearing them.

Auto Adaptation Manager Yes

The hearing aid can gradually increase in volume automatically over a specified period of time to help listeners gradually adapt and acclimatise to wearing them.
