Unitron is owned by a Swiss company called Sonova who also own the hearing aid manufacturer Phonak. Perhaps more interestingly, Sonova also owns the majority shareholding of Boots Hearingcare in the UK. If you've been recommended Phonak or Unitron hearing aids by Boots Hearingcare then it's hardly surprising. Unitron is the lower-cost alternative to Phonak in the same way that Volkswagen is to Audi who are part of the same company.
If you're struggling to understand the make and model names of Phonak hearing aids then here's a simple guide to help:
The higher the number, the higher the technology level and the higher the price.
Unitron is a worldwide company that works closely with health professionals and academics to provide the best hearing experience for its customers. Established in 1964 and one of several hearing aid manufacturers within the Sonova Group umbrella company, the Canadian hearing aids devices can be found in over 70 countries around the globe. Based in Canada's' Silicon Valley' in the Kitchener-Waterloo region of Ontario, Canada, the firm is rightly proud of its devices that combine a natural sound experience with an excellent understanding of speech in noise.
From the very beginning, Unitron has concentrated research and development on features that benefit its users the most. In the 1980s, Unitron becomes a leader in Behind-the-ear (Behind The Ear) devices for individuals who suffered from severe to profound hearing loss.
Unitron is still a market leader in the field of the digital hearing aids and has received several product design prizes, including one for the smallest ever wireless receiver-in-canal hearing aid, the Moxi Now. This won a Red Dot design in 2017.
The digital era has been marked by Unitron constantly evolving the landscape of listening solutions with programmable hearing aids and hearing aid fitting software. Unitron continues to enhance its technology to improve the fit of hearing aids for its patients.
Unitron’s latest devices are powered by the Discover platform, which is based on three technologies to improve speech in noisy situations: SoundNav, Sound Conductor and SpeechZone.
Their new SoundNav automatic program is smart enough to recognise conversations in various types of background noise so that their hearing instruments can manage each of them in a different way.
Sound Conductor was developed under the premise that understanding speech was the main reason why people choose to wear a hearing aid. When a conversation and a certain kind of background noise is identified by SoundNav, the Sound Conductor handles changes the settings to help clarifies speech, making it easier to engage in discussions.
When the conversation takes place under very tough background noise scenarios, that's when the Premium SpeechZone function kicks in. It identifies speech from 360 degrees around the patient so that they can more easily hear speech from any direction.
SoundNav, Sound Conductor and SpeechZone operate together to allow patients to automatically experience excellent speech comprehension in discussions across a wider spectrum of background sounds while still preserving a natural sound quality. According to Unitron, the Tempus platform is 50% more accurate, and 36% faster than Unitron's previous processing platform, Unitron North.
If your hearing needs alter during the life of your hearing aid, you can upgrade to more sophisticated technology without having to buy a brand new device. With many Unitron hearing aids, you can upgrade your device software for a small fee and enjoy a higher level of technology.
