Digital Hearing Aids Technologies - Enhancing Speech Discrimination

  • Omni Directional
    • Picks up sounds from all directions equally
  • Conventional Directional & fix directional (AudioZoom)
    • Suppress sounds coming from the rear
  • Adaptive Directional (digital Adaptive AudioZoom)
    • Tracks/follows the loudest noise source and suppresses sound from its direction
  • Multiple adaptive AudioZoom
    • Suppresses noise from multiple directions at the same time
    • Can be 2,4 or 20 (digitalSurroundZoom) directions
  • EchoBlock
    • Echo reduces speech understanding
    • Echo is common in all hard walled & unfurnished rooms (e.g. airport, train station, mosque, church,...)
    • EchoBlock eliminates Echo and improves speech understanding
  • Wind Noise Reduction
    • Uncovered microphones openings create turbulences which saturate the microphones
    • The fine structure of the Wind & Weather protection avoids these turbulences and keeps wind noise out of the system
    • Remaining noise is eliminated using special digital algorithms
  • FM
    • Personal FM radio system
      • Consists of one transmitter & one or two receivers per listener
    • Used in combination with hearing instruments & cochlea implants or as stand-alone
    • Improves significantly speech understanding & communication in difficult listening situations
      • Distance, noise, reverberation
    • Therapy support for CAPD, ADHD & LD
      • Shortens therapy duration & improves outcome
