Based on the new sophisticated Era platform,  Unitron Quantum range of hearing aids are released into the Australian Hearing Aid Market this month ( June 2011).  They have a bit resemblance to the previous product range from Unitron like Passport and Latitude. However they come with much better and sophisticated chip built into the device. Being the most recent release from the manufacturer, Unitron Quantum range is equipped with the most recent innovations in the hearing aid industry.

Unitron Quantum range comes in three levels. They are Quantum 20, Quantum 12 and Quantum 6, the number signifying the number of bands available in the instrument. Thus Quantum 20 is the Premium class option, Quantum 12 is the Business Class option and Quantum 6 is the Value Class option

Unitron Quantum range, being the most recent release into the market, come with two-fold processing capability(more than 200,00,00,00 operations processed per second). It is also equipped with sensors possessing high resolution. These are mostly used for enabling the users to adopt the listening requirements comprising very complex environments (there are around 46 sensors to accomplish this). Even the capacity is also doubled making it capable of accommodating 16,00,00,000 transistors. The memory is also two-fold. The recent advancements in the chip industry has made all this possible, which enabled all this to be accomplished with a 65 nm chip.

Unitron Quantum range is capable of delivering the most natural sounds ensuring the quality of the speech and other sounds is retained. The distortion is minimal. The devices come with the most sophisticated technologies like the Pinna Effect, Natural Sound Balance and AntiShock to deliver high quality sound while providing great listening comfort to the users.

The Unitron Quantum is fully wireless as well, offering Bluetooth connections to your mobile phone, home telephone, TV and can be fully accessed with a remote control, as an option.

And all this technology is affordable and costs no more to buy from Hearing Plus in Perth.

Thanks to a completely new design approach the BTE housings are 20-30 percent smaller than the previous generation, each model being the smallest in its gain category. Further expanding the style offering is the new Petite BTE housing – the smallest BTE of all times – available for Phonak Ambra, Solana and Cassia.

Phonak Cassia – setting new standards for an entry level hearing aid in Perth.

Phonak Solana comes with other exciting features such as UltraZoom Advanced, a sophisticated adaptive multichannel microphone system with a unique directional noise cancellation system called SNR-Boost. Intelligent loudness management with FlexVolume and other key signature features such as SoundRecover, SoundRelax and WindBlock truly change the way a mid-range hearing aid is perceived.

The new range of custom products offers a wide choice of options.

The much anticipated launch of the new Phonak Hearing Aids has been released in Perth!

The previous chipset known as “Core”, was considered by many to be one of the best devices available, but with the “Spice Generation” now launched in November 2010, it has confirmed Phonak as the best and most innovative manufacturer of hearing aids worldwide.

With the Spice Generation chipset, Phonak sets a new industry benchmark in microchip technology. Fastest processing power, highest capacity, largest memory and smallest size are among the impressive features of the Spice chipset. With the new design approach – ContourDesign – for smaller housings shaped to follow the contours of the ear, Spice builds the basis for a completely new generation of hearing instruments. In addition, they are proud to introduce Phonak TargetTM, the new fitting software created in close collaboration with hearing healthcare professionals worldwide.

The new Phonak Spice Generation chipset sets new standards when it comes to microchip technology: 16 million transistors packed in 65 nanometer chip technology, offering the fastest processing speed with over 200 million operations per second and the largest memory. The fastest and most stable wireless connections and the widest range of cable-free fitting choices guarantee maximum performance and simple usability. The unique broadband, wireless real-audio exchange enables features to make hearing possible in situations where it was impossible to hear in the past.

Siemens Hearing Aids BestSound Technology in Perth

Siemens introduced the next generation of its Motion, Life, and Pure hearing systems to Perth in June 2010. We have been fitting these Siemens Hearing Aids in Perth for four months now with great success. The Open-ear design of the Life and Pure, together with the SoundBrillance feature has become a successful option for treating tinnitus for our Perth clients.

These products now come with BestSound Technology, which once again noticeably improves hearing comfort. Key features include the three-dimensional speech recognition technology SpeechFocus, intelligent SoundLearning 2.0 and FeedbackStopper, which eliminates feedback just as it is starting. Additional colors and a new charger with an automatic drying function round out these products’ wide range of design and functional innovations.

Siemens Pure hearing instruments are not only exceptionally small, but thanks to the new BestSound Technology they also adjust automatically to various listening situations to provide optimal sound quality and focus speech, no matter which direction it originates.

Siemens first began industrial production of hearing instruments one hundred years ago and has set the standard for technological innovation ever since. Siemens has once again demonstrated its role as an innovation leader with the next generation of its Motion, Life and Pure hearing systems. They are equipped with cutting-edge BestSound Technology, which essentially combines three functions to provide wearers with much greater hearing comfort.

SpeechFocus improves upon existing directional microphone technology to provide three-dimensional hearing. While earlier directional microphones can only focus on speech which comes from in front of the wearer, the direction where speech originates is no longer a limitation. For example, SpeechFocus makes it possible for hearing instrument wearers to better follow a conversation with someone walking beside them or to understand the grandchildren when they call out from the back seat of the car.

SoundLearning 2.0
brings the idea of intelligent hearing instrument to a whole new level. For the first time, the hearing systems learn and adapt instrument settings for sound and volume – and it does so for different listening situations. As a result, the hearing instruments switch automatically – and depending on the situation the wearer is in – to the appropriate mode for conversation, music, or noise.

Furthermore, the FeedbackStopper also has been improved. It works even more quickly now, and eliminates annoying feedback before the wearer can even hear it. It also distinguishes between feedback and tonal sounds in the environment, thanks to the Acoustic Fingerprint Technology patented by Siemens. So, a signal from a microwave oven is not distorted, but similar sounding feedback is reliably eliminated.

Thanks to the new BestSound Technology, wearing Motion, Life, and Pure hearing systems has never been more comfortable or clearer in background noise.

Hearing Clinics “Failing Consumers”

People with hearing loss are not being offered an adequate level of service from shops selling assessments and hearing aids, an undercover investigation has found.

The RNID, the UK’s largest hearing loss charity, linked up with consumer watchdog “Which?” to send undercover researchers to 28 branches of the five biggest high street companies and independent dispensers.

It described the experiences of the undercover shoppers as “shocking” and it is calling for a review of regulations covering private hearing aid sellers.

More than four in 10 hearing assessment experiences were rated “poor” by audiology and trading standards experts, the study revealed.

Researchers posing as customers visited Specsavers, the Hearing Company, Hidden Hearing, Amplifon, Boots in-store David Ormerod centres, regional chains and independent dispensers to test clinical assessments, communication, product recommendation and selling.

They found that not one company was good enough to recommend, almost half of hearing tests were not carried out in a soundproof booth, and half the dispensers failed to ask basic health questions to determine whether the hearing loss was caused by a treatable medical problem.

RNID chief executive Jackie Ballard said: “We are very concerned that people with hearing loss are not always receiving the level of service they’d expect.”

Phonak launches its newest Bluetooth accessory – The TVlink.

Phonak makes some of the best hearing aids in the world, and equally complimented with world-class accessories such as the iCom. However, in the recent past, Phonak used third-party Bluetooth transmitters such as the Voiss, for delivering TV audio signals to the iCom. But not anymore!

The TV-link addresses all the shortcomings of previous Bluetooth transmiters:

  • Wirelessly connects CORE products to a huge variety of external devices
  • Phonak StereoSound audio transmission to the hearing instruments
  • Receives input in 3 different ways: Bluetooth wireless (speech and stereo music), wired stereo audiojack and FM via europlug
  • Ergonomic design with one simple button
  • True hands-free operation with directional microphone pickup
  • Multi-point technology allows the use of two phones in parallel
  • Rechargeable battery
  • Small, attractive and unobtrusive
  • Fully automatic switching of hearing programs, which can be individually fine tuned with fitting software
