Unitron Discover & Discover Next Hearing Aid Range

|  July 2020 Update:  Unitron launched the Discover Next hearing aid range.  The idea behind Discover Next hearing aids is that it focuses not just on the words in conversations - but helps those with hearing loss to understand who is talking, where the voices are coming from, what tone they are using and also their emotions.  

Discover Next

With their new sound feature, it assists you in hearing better in challenging environments - even the softest-spoken person will be focused in a noisy atmosphere. This launch also comes with a new rechargeable shape for 2020 - the Moxi Move R - Unitron's smallest RIC.

Unitron Discover

 Discover, Discover

The original Unitron Discover range was launched in April 2019 and brings a variety of new features and additions to the existing hardware from the previous Tempus platform.

Unitron shares much of its technology with manufacturer Phonak as both companies are owned by Sonova. However, that is hardware only, the implementation of the technology is different between the two companies.

In this article, we will be talking about some of these unique features, along with general information about the overall range.

Unitron Discover Duo Visual

Technical features

"Made for All"

Just like with the popular Phonak Marvel range that came out in 2018, the Unitron Discover range use the "Sword 3.0" microchip which enables these hearing aids to be able to stream not only from iPhones, but also from Android and other Bluetooth devices. Music, audiobooks, phone calls can all be streamed directly to the hearing aids with no other accessory needed to assist.

Phone calls are now especially easy as the hearing aid picks up your own voice so that you don't need to put the phone up to your head. Calls can be accepted or rejected using the push button on the hearing aids and you will hear the ringtone in the hearing aids if anyone calls.

Unitron Discover

Unitron "Flex" system

This is unique to Unitron. All of their hearing aids in a particular range, from the top model down to the most basic is actually just the same from a hardware point of view, the difference is only in the software. This means two things for the end-user, firstly whilst the hearing aids are on trial, you can essentially try out the more and less expensive versions of the hearing aid to see what level of technology you actually need. This means that you don't end up spending more than you need to as you'll only end up buying the technology you actually use. In addition to this, if your needs change over time then you can upgrade to a more expensive version without buying new aids from scratch, you simply pay the price difference and the audiologist will update the software in the hearing aids to change it to the more sophisticated version. This can be done months, or even years later.

Unitron Discover

A common situation where this is used is if someone buys some hearing aids thinking that they will mainly use them at home or watching TV so they buy the basic version (for example the Discover 3) but then they find that with the new aids they are more confident in social situations, but now wish that they had bought the version which had better background noise reduction so that they could properly appreciate their increased sociability. They would simply contact the audiologist and purchase the upgrade to the better version, for example in this case possibly the Discover 7.

Soundcore

The operating system in the Unitron Discover range is the SoundNav 3.0. Despite being only an iterative update over the previous range (unsurprisingly called SoundNav 2.0), early reviews from our first customers wearing them suggest a noticeable improvement. They use a feature called SoundCore which is made up of four aspects that combine together to help in the tougher environments. The OS, SoundNav 3.0 working with Sound Conductor, Speechpro and Spatial Awareness combines information from up to seven environmental settings to personalise your sound map. Yes, this is very much marketing department speak again, but what it is actually doing is reading whatever environment you are in and combining the information it's getting from the different systems in the hearing aid to choose the most appropriate program for you so that you don't have to press buttons to do that yourself.

Interestingly this includes streaming with "MediaNav" being able to tell whether you are streaming music or speech and optimising the sound quality for that source of sound.

Charging Station

Rechargeable option

Previously in their Tempus range, Unitron had the Z-Power Silver-Zinc rechargeable system. This wasn't so popular as the charging units sometimes had issues. They have now changed to a more reliable Lithium-ion rechargeable battery for the "Discover Moxi Jump R" model. It's a simple to use system, the hearing aid turns on when you remove it from the charger, and an average user will get around 16 hours of wear time.

Discover Jump R

Comparing the Discover Shapes 

Discover 9 / 7 / 5 / 3 Moxi Jump R

Unitron's first lithium-ion rechargeable hearing aid, the Moxi Jump R is a receiver in canal aid that is straightforward to charge. There is no battery door and the aid clips straight into the charger.

Discover Fit1

Discover 9 / 7 / 5 / 3 Moxi Fit

Slimmer than the rechargeable model, the Moxi Fit uses a standard 312 battery. 

Vista

Be aware (or beware) of the "Vista"

You might have been quoted for a "Vista" hearing aid and been told that these are special hearing aids are available for only a select number of audiologists. This is true, Unitron, an otherwise decent manufacturer of hearing aids has engaged in what is known as a "white labeling" of their hearing aids.

This is to enable businesses who wish to charge significantly more for a hearing aid to do so without their customers being able to do a price comparison online.

We obviously disagree with this practice, hence this notification.

Vista hearing aids are identical in everything but name to their Unitron counterparts. If you have been quoted for a Vista hearing aid, give us a call and we will help you decipher which model it really is.

TV Connector

What about in-ear models?

The Unitron Discover range have no in-ear options, only the two receiver in canal models already mentioned. 

However, the technology in the Discover hearing aids is based on the same as is in the Unitron Tempus range, so if you are looking for a custom made in-ear model then it's the Tempus you should be looking at.
