Hansaton launches rechargeable BTE hearing system with lithium-ion batteries


With the introduction of the AQ jam SHD with lithium-ion batteries, the Hamburg-based hearing system manufacturer HANSATON is adding a behind-the-ear model (BTE) to its portfolio of rechargeable hearing systems with SHD technology.

Like the AQ sound SHD, a rechargeable RIC hearing system released in Spring 2017, Hansaton’s AQ jam SHD BTE model has a lithium-ion battery designed to guarantee hearing system users 24 hours of battery runtime* and optimum sound quality.

As Daniel Maas, Business Director Hansaton Sales Germany, puts it: “Over the past twenty-plus years, our company has compiled a wealth of expertise and experience in the area of rechargeable battery technology. We are so convinced of the merits of our AQ SHD series models that we are offering our German customers a five-year warranty on their lithium-ion batteries—as an extra promise of quality, so to speak. And now, for the first time,” he adds, “the AQ SHD series is also available in Performance Level 3, or Economy Class. So, depending on what our hearing system customers want and need, they have their choice of systems in Performance Levels 3, 5, 7, or 9.”

As with other rechargeable battery-powered external receiver systems, the BTE model is a durable, plasma-coated system that meets the high standards of IP68 certification. Both models in the rechargeable AQ SHD series are available in eight color combinations and have charging accessories available. The white Comfort Charger base station protects and dries the hearing systems while charging them at the same time. Users who find themselves with no plugs available can equip their Comfort Charger stations with a mobile Comfort Power Pack charging solution that provides enough power for an additional seven charging cycles. The compact Light Charger is also available as a workplace solution.

*Expected running time of 24 hours when fully charged, including 80 minutes of wireless streaming.
