The Nera2 Pro was launched in spring 2015 and has superseded the previous generation of Nera2 Pro hearing aids.
Oticon Nera2 Pro
The Nera2 Pro is the advanced level hearing aid in Oticon's range using their new Inium Sense processing platform. These wireless hearing aids have many features and programs to help you to hear better in a variety of different situations. These include;
16 channels controlled by 8 bands
The more bands a hearing aid has, the clearer the sound will be as each band is used to process sounds in the different frequency channels. It also means that your hearing aid can be programmed precisely to your level of hearing.
This program helps to reduce the amount of non speech background noise you hear, making it easier to hear conversation in busy places.
Wind Noise Reduction
For better speech clarity when you are outside, this program reduces the effect of wind noise on your hearing.
Inium Feedback Shield
This program removes the sound of feedback before it becomes a problem, without distorting the other sounds around you.
This technology from Oticon manages the synchronisation processes and wireless communication between your hearing aids. IT ensures that both hearing aids are always on the same programs and settings through binaural synchronisation. If you change the volume or setting on one hearing aid, the other will change automatically.
Binaural processing ensures that sound processing and compression happen together, giving you greater spatial awareness and helping you work out sound direction.
The telephone program streams the sound of a phone call to both hearing aids at the same time so that you can hear the caller clearly, with fewer distractions in the room.
FreeFocus Advanced gives you four direction settings for your microphones. This means that you can hear speech with greater clarity even if you cannot face the person who is speaking. It also helps to reduce the effect of background noise.
This program gives you three listening profiles which can be tailored to your needs for different situations.
Soft Speech Booster
In quiet environments, people naturally speak more quietly, this can make it even more difficult to hear the softer speech sounds at the higher frequencies. This program enhances these speech sounds and amplifies them to make speech understanding easier. This program can adapt to your environment so that a sudden increase in noise doesn’t become uncomfortable.
Tinnitus Sound Support
This program helps to relieve the symptoms of tinnitus by playing soothing sounds. Using the Sound App from the Apple store along with the ConnectLine Streamer Pro, you can also choose which tinnitus settings you prefer. There are also two relaxation programs to help with the stress of living with tinnitus.
These hearing aids are able to remember your favourite settings and apply them, so you don’t need to fiddle with your settings too often.
Helping you to get used to your new hearing aids, this program gradually increases the volume over time, so that your hearing is always at a comfortable level for you.
These hearing aids are available in a range of colour options and fittings making it easy to choose the best one to suit you. Fittings include:
Invisible In Canal (IIC), Completely In Canal (CIC), In The Canal (ITC), In The Ear (ITE) Design Receiver In The Ear (DesignRITE), mini Receiver In The Earl (miniRITE), Receiver In The Ear (RITE), mini Behind The Ear (miniBTE) and Behind The Ear (BTE)
The ITC, ITE, RITE and BTE fittings have a telecoil, and the RITE, miniBTE and BTE have a volume control.
These hearing aids are fully compatible with Oticon’s ConnectLine range of accessories.
