As a hearing practice, we're always on the hunt for the latest and greatest advancements in hearing aid technology. Today we're thrilled to introduce two new products that have just hit the market: the Oticon Real and the Starkey Genesis.
Let's look at these two new product lines in more detail.
For those who wear hearing aids, everyday background sounds can pose challenges to understanding others. Traditional hearing aid technology can't always handle these sounds, and the individual must often spend effort focusing when engaging in social situations.
Introducing RealSound Technology™
Oticon Real offers a new approach to distracting sounds with RealSound Technology, which effectively manages these distracting sounds. This technology features two innovations - Wind & Handling Stabilizer and SuddenSound Stabilizer - to process complex, unpredictable sounds quickly and accurately. This ensures that the user hears these sounds without them being intrusive while speech and other surrounding sounds remain clear.
The return of the Deep Neural Network (DNN)
Oticon Real offers a hearing aid designed to work harmoniously with your brain, drawing on its own learning experiences. This device utilizes Oticon's unique Deep Neural Network (DNN) technology, enabling it to recognize various types of sounds, their intricacies, and their ideal auditory qualities. As a result, it can rapidly adapt to changing environments, ensuring you perform at your best in any situation.
Oticon Real provides improved access to speech and outstanding speech clarity, allowing you to participate in conversations with greater awareness, focus, and control. It's even proven to enhance speech clarity in windy conditions.
Real-life testing demonstrates that Oticon Real significantly reduces listening effort, even in noisy situations.
Loaded with Extras
The Oticon Companion app provides an all-in-one solution that allows users to easily control and personalize their hearing aids, locate them if misplaced, manage connected devices, and even receive remote counseling from their hearing care professionals.
For seamless communication, users can make hands-free phone and video calls with their iPhone and iPad, using their hearing aids as wireless headsets. High-quality streaming is available directly from iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and select Android devices. Additionally, with Oticon's TV Adapter, users can stream sound now from their TVs, and by using the ConnectClip, they can wirelessly stream someone's voice to their hearing aids.
The award-winning SmartCharger provides the freedom to recharge hearing aids on the go, thanks to its built-in power bank. It fully charges hearing aids in three hours, ensuring they last throughout the day. A quick 30-minute charge provides an additional six hours of power. The sleek case also keeps hearing aids dry and safe when not in use.
Oticon also offers a stylish desktop charger for everyday convenience. Users can place their hearing aids in the charger at night and wake up to a fully charged device ready for the day. Finally, Oticon Real hearing aids boast discreet and elegant designs, available in rechargeable and disposable battery options and nine colors.
