Sonova’s Unitron brand has launched a new hearing aid platform—Blu—to offer users a device adaptable to varying daily sound environments.
The new Moxi Blu family has been redesigned for additional wearing comfort and ease of use, and includes two lithium-ion rechargeable models. Through Unitron’s Remote Plus app, clients can maximise their hearing experience with in-app reminders and contextual how-to’s designed to seamlessly familiarise clients to the new technology. A no-commitment trial period with all Moxi Blu hearing instruments is part of the deal.
The technology Blu counts on is the Sonova PRISM (Processing Real-Time Intelligent Sound Management) chip and Unitron’s new signal processing system Integra OS.
“It is hard to know what experiences we may encounter throughout the day, ”says Nicola McLaughlin, Director of Hearing Instruments Business at Unitron. “With our new Blu platform clients are provided with our most advanced sound performance and will be ready for life’s unexpected moments knowing their hearing aids will keep up with their unique lifestyle.”
Blu combined with the Remote Plus app means users can temporarily boost clarity and comfort within the automatic program. In special circumstances they can also select from up to six optional pre-set programs which they can further adjust to enhance speech, reduce noise or focus the microphones all to meet their unique lifestyle needs.
Connectivity comes through the platform’s Made-For-All technology. Compatible with Bluetooth products, Blu allows wearers to interact seamlessly with their favourite devices. With tap control, a key feature of another Sonova device, the Phonak Paradise hearing aid, Blu wearers can access virtual assistants, accept and end calls, as well as pause and play media while connected simultaneously to two Bluetooth devices, all with a double-tap to the side of the ear. In total, clients can pair up to eight devices, including both Android and Apple phones, tablets and other Bluetooth devices.
“Our world is increasingly rooted in technology-based solutions. As more of us move to a remote work model, the number of devices we are connected to throughout the day is growing,” shares Sandra Fulton, Vice President of Group Marketing at Unitron. “As our clients’ lifestyles evolve, so must Unitron’s products and Blu seamlessly allows our customers to immerse themselves in all aspects of life with full confidence in their hearing aid compatibility.”
