Rexton Reach Hearing Aids VS Rexton BiCore

Comparing Rexton Reach hearing aids with Rexton BiCore

What's the difference between the two?

 

Compare Reach and BiCore

Looking back at the launch highlights of BiCore, Rexton's top technical advancement at this point was the introduction of two separate processors.  By separating, we mean processing speech and background noise individually.  This allowed wearers to get the best performance when listening to speech in noise,  as their listening environment shifts.

At the time, this was a huge benefit to wearers (and also not offered by other manufacturers) - separately processing both speech and noise to create a larger contrast between the two.  Now with the launch of Reach, Rexton has developed this even further with their Multi-Voice Focus technology and four focus beams.

 

Why is this additional layer an important advancement?

Multi-Voice Focus adds an additional layer (SoundPro 3.0) by being able to analyse and steer multiple beams at the same time.  This picks up conversation with multiple speakers, even amongst quick dynamic shifts in noisy environments.  You might be wondering why this is so special. 

When multiple people are talking within a conversation, naturally voices drop in and out and travel around.  If you take a look at what traditional hearing aids do when faced with noisy environments, they either narrow directionality which means you miss out on anyone speaking outside of this narrow beam.  Or have broad directionality which means you're picking up every sound and noise in that wide beam. 

Either way, there are a lot of compromises being made, little focus on conversation and you end up not being able to catch every word.

 

The below shows the Multi-Voice Focus in effect

Comparing SoundPro 2.0 in Rexton BiCore with SoundPro 3.0 in Rexton Reach

The biggest difference is between the SoundPro upgrade since BiCore.  SoundPro 2.0 in BiCore dynamically adapted to the listening environment by utilising factors such as motion sensors, and speech direction.  In a nutshell, this meant that it continually fine-tuned sound settings to mirror your environment seamlessly in real-time.

Reach's SoundPro 3.0 automatically steers all sound processing such as the location of active talkers, their proximity, the number of people talking as well as "turn-taking and timing". Initially, it might sound like this added layer doesn't mean much, but practically, it will make a huge difference to how these hearing aids handle speech when compared to BiCore.

 

Below shows the differences in sound analysis between Reach SoundPro 3, other hearing aids, and BiCore

Worth the upgrade?

Although this hearing aid manufacturer has been around since the 50s, they don't get the limelight like other big brands such as Phonak for example.  Rather surprising, since this brand is part of the WS Audiology A/S group that manufactures both Signia and Widex hearing aids.   

In fact, when looking at Rexton's offerings, you might have noticed some similarities in Signia's technology and design.  The difference between Signia and Rexton?  Rexton is more budget-friendly and their products mirror Signia's advanced level of technology.

However, if we look at Rexton's BiCore range and compare to Signia's IX, although a great product for the price, you might be more inclined to reach for the premium Signia device if more support in background noise was a priority and price tag wasn't an issue.  Now, with Rexton Reach and that additional layer, this aid is worth considering.

Rexton, as a whole, design some of the toughest hearing devices on the market.  They are arguably the most rigorously tested too, which means they can withstand the harshest environments.  Such as resistance to impact, chemicals, sweat, heat, vibration, and UV.  They are also ATEX certified which means they are safe to use in hazardous working environments.

This could be anything from chemical manufacturing to oil rigs.  This is why it's no surprise that most of our customers who work in these challenging conditions choose Rexton devices for their hearing solution.  Not just because of their robustness, durability, and reliability but also the safety and confidence they provide.

 Rexton Reach versus Rexton BiCoreReach versus Rexton BiCore

To summarise

When we compare different models within the same brand, we look at what has changed, what has stayed the same and what are the benefits of upgrading to the latest range.  With Reach, all other aspects have pretty much remained since BiCore which, in this case, isn't a bad thing. 

Their rechargeable technology, Bluetooth connectivity, and app are some of the best out there and they are also future-proof - with a quick firmware update you'll be ready for the new Bluetooth LE Audio.

If you're looking to upgrade your existing Rexton hearing aids, we think the way these aids handle hearing through noise will be the most enticing.  Or you might even be tempted to try Rexton after wearing Signia given they offer most of the same features at an affordable price.

Either way, it's worth reflecting on what your current hearing aids are good at, what they could do better, and whether your hearing loss needs or common listening environments have changed.  Are you more social, more active and do you find yourself in noisy environments needing to hear better in noise?

Speak to your local audiologist who can go through all these specifics and changes and whether Rexton Reach is the right solution or upgrade for you.

Reach versus BiCore hearing aids

Hearing aid technology advances constantly and it's important to know when it's time to replace the ones you already have.  For example, you might find that your current hearing aids aren't supporting your hearing like they used to. 

This might be because your hearing loss has changed and you now need more features and programmes that aren't accessible to you. 

Our audiologists can help you understand your new hearing loss needs and specifications and the hearing solutions that can get your hearing back on track.
