Unitron: Company Overview
Unitron is a Canadian hearing aid manufacturer founded in 1964 in what is considered Canada’s Silicon Valley. Unitron is committed to making life better through innovation. Along with the National Centre for Audiology at Western University, Unitron tests hearing instruments on real people and receive feedback from audiologists and product experts. Unitron shapes their hearing instruments based on feedback and comments from these tests before they are released to the market. As a global leader, Unitron supports community efforts such as the Global Foundation for Children with Hearing Loss and Hear the World Foundation.
North is Unitron’s newest processing platform, and provides Unitron hearing aid wearers with clearer sound signals and sound quality. SoundNav is programmed with precise classifications of sound environments, especially for speech recognition. There are four channels dedicated for clearer conversation: conversation in quiet, in a small group, in a crowd, and in noise. With a 101 decibel dynamic range, Unitron hearing aid wearers experience a full range of sounds without distortion. In addition to SoundNav, Speech Zone 2 and Sound Conductor features work in conjunction to give Unitron hearing aid wearers a natural sound experience.
Introducing the new
Moxi Now is Unitron’s newest family of hearing aids, the world’s smallest receiver-in-canal model. Powered by the North Platform, the Moxi Now is the size of 2 blueberries stacked on top of each other.
Moxi Now offers comfort, streamlined aesthetics, intuitive functionality, and many of Unitron’s trademark features that elucidate speech. Speech Zone 2 adjusts microphones to focus on speech coming from any direction, and is especially useful in noisy situations. Additionally, the Binaural Spatial Processing feature activates microphones to work together to determine the direction of speech.
SoundNav, one of Unitron’s trademark features, is an automatic program that identifies and smoothly transitions sounds for wearers across different listening environments, with a special focus on conversation (see above). Moxi Now’s Sound Conductor program balances sounds to provide wearers with a comfortable and natural listening experience.
Moxi Now’s special features include adaptive directional programs to suppress and track multiple background noise sources, while frequency compression takes high-frequency sounds that may be difficult for those with hearing loss and translates them to lower frequencies for comfortable listening. The AntiShock feature softens loud sounds, such as a door slamming, that may otherwise cause discomfort with amplification.
Moxi Now is available in three technology levels – Pro, 800, and 700. In all technology levels, Moxi Now offers natural sound balance, data logging, feedback elimination, wind control, and wireless connectivity to phones and other devices.
For those who experience tinnitus, Moxi Now is equipped with tinnitus masking technology, which provides comfort and also helps with the listening experience. With an array of colors, long battery life, and a sturdy, resistant coating, Moxi Now is designed for people with active lifestyles.
