Sonic spotlights the company’s next generation of wireless accessories and new Real Ear Fit technology at the 2014 European Union of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA) Congress in Hanover, Germany, October 15 - 17. Sonic invites delegates attending the annual three-day trade event to discover how Sonic’s newest innovations not only “make everyday sounds better” but can also make every fitting easy, fast and accurate. Like all of the Sonic product lines on display at the Sonic Booth (Hall 6, Booth C26), the new wireless accessories and real ear verification technology are built on the Sonic 4S Foundation of sound that’s natural, speech understanding in noise, simplicity in everything we do and style that stands out.
Delegates will receive a detailed introduction to the next generation wireless accessories. SoundGate 2 delivers a 200% increase in range (up to 90 feet) and a 100% increase in battery life for up to 10 hours of streaming. SoundGate 2 includes a built-in telecoil so that users can benefit from looped systems even if their hearing instruments do not contain a telecoil.
The new TV Adapter 2 and Phone Adapter 2 are compatible with the original SoundGate and provide a 200% increase in range when used with the new SoundGate 2. A “SelectMe” feature allows SoundGate 2 to switch easily between multiple paired TV Adapters, and the TV Adapter 2 now supports TOSLink optical audio cable input. With Phone Adapter 2, users can connect seamlessly to digital office phones (VoIP systems) via an optional Sennheiser accessory. All three wireless accessories feature a new, updated design.
New Real Ear Fit enables to deliver easier, more customized fittings, automatically adjusting hearing instrument response to match prescriptive targets without the need to switch from EXPRESSfit to separate REM software.
