Nowadays, patients enjoy a wide range of choice when it comes to hearing aid styles. Learn more about the most popular wearing styles below.
As an independent audiology clinic, we have the flexibility to work with all of the top hearing aid manufacturers. This grants us the freedom to recommend what's truly best for each patient, no matter the brand. See below for the latest hearing aid models available from the top manufacturers.
The Oticon More with BrainHearing technology takes hearing aid performance to the next level with its Deep Neural Network (DNN) embedded on the chip. Over 10 million real-life sounds are used to train this DNN system and this allows this hearing device to give your brain more of the auditory sounds (information) it needs to make sense of the sounds around you. The result is better speech understanding with less strain and the ability to comprehend and remember more - even in those challenging listening environments. Oticon More also includes direct streaming for iOS and Android, Tinnitus Sound Support and a rechargeable battery option.
The Phonak Paradise was created to deliver crisp natural sound and improved noise cancellation for difficult listening environments. The new PRISM processing chip has twice as much memory as the previous model (Marvel) and vastly expands its bluetooth connection capabilities. This has significant impacts on the hearing aid user - like being able to connect to up to 8 bluetooth devices and having improved noise cancellation for those tough listening environments. Features of the Paradise hearing aids include remote programming, dynamic noise cancellation and reachargeability. There is even a waterproof model (Audeo Life) for those who put their hearing aids in more physically demanding environments or for those looking for a hearing aid that can withstand strenuous activities.
The newest hearing aid from Resound, the Resound One, introduced a new style of hearing aid, the Microphone & Receiver-In-Ear (or M&RIE) design. This new type of hearing aid places an additional receiver in the ear canal, leveraging your unique ear anatomy to collect sounds the way nature intended it to. The additional microphone results in better overall sound quality, particularly in difficult environments like restaurants or in the presence of wind noise. Resound One hearing aids also come with iOS and Android streaming, rechargeable battery options and a number of features on Resound’s Smart 3D smartphone app.
Starkey Livio AI brings the power of artificial intelligence to hearing aid technology, giving hearing aid wearers never-before-possible performance in the most challenging listening environments. The Livio AI technology allows users to hear speech comfortably even in busy settings and boosts the speech sounds to help make it easier to hear people - this is especially helpful when others are wearing face masks. Starkey Livio also has remote programming (telehealth), bluetooth connectivity, rechargeable options and tinnitus features.
Signia's new Styletto AX combines award-winning design and rechargeability with excellent sound quality, so you can always hear what matters to you. In the upgraded AX, the design is even smaller and more discreet than its predecessor. The Signia Styletto was the world’s first SLIM-RIC hearing aid and this new innovation combined fashion with high-tech hearing. One unique feature in these devices is Own Voice Processing (OVP), which helps new hearing aid wearers by delivering a more natural sound of the users voice. In addition to the sleek design, these devices also come with trendy colors, wireless rechargeability, Signia’s AI assistant and Signia Telecare (for remote hearing aid programming).
The new Moxi Blu hearing aids feature Unitron’s highly advanced signal processing system, Integra OS. With easier personalization via the Remote Plus app, smartphone connectivity, and a sleek and modern design, these hearing aids are ready for anything the day holds. Powered by Sonova’s PRISM (Processing Real-time Intelligent Sound Management), these hearing devices have twice the memory, more processing power and more connectivity possibilities. Some Unitron Moxi Blu features include rechargeability, telecoil, bluetooth and hands-free control.
The newest hearing aids from Widex, Moment, use their new ZeroDelay technology to deliver a more pure, natural sound to the user. For most hearing aids, sound processed reaches the eardrum milliseconds later than sounds that hit the eardrum directly. And these two out of sync signals mix, often creating artificial sounds (or distortion) called artefacts. The ultrafast processing of the ZeroDelay system in Moment hearing aids makes a meaningful difference to users by eliminating these artificial sounds. In addition, Moment hearing aids offer a water-resistant coating, real-time machine learning and the smallest rechargeable receiver-in-canal style on the market.
