Update - New information

This hearing aid has now been superseded. The aids available in Resound's newest range are the LiNX2 9, the LiNX2 7 and the LiNX2 5. If you are working to a budget and are looking for a more basic hearing aid you may want to look at the Enya 4Enya 3 or Enya 2


 

The Alera TS is a hearing aid that not only offers a solution to your everyday hearing needs but has an extra feature that helps those who suffer from tinnitus.  The TSG (Tinnitus Sound Generator) produces sounds that draw your attention away from the noise of your tinnitus, making it more manageable. The top level of technology in this range is the TS 5.

Models available

  • Alera TS 5 60/61 RIE (Receiver in Ear)
  • Alera TS 5 62 RIE (Receiver in Ear)
  • Alera TS 5 Mini BTE (Behind the Ear)
  • Alera TS 5 Transitional BTE (Behind the Ear) This model has the ability to switch between a standard and power hearing aid.
  • Alera TS 5 RM (Remote Microphone) custom-fit

 

Features include

 

 

  • 9 Channels – Each channel processes a range of frequencies so the more channels you have, the more specifically it can be programmed to suit your hearing needs.
  • Two Programmes – This would allow you to programme the hearing aid for two different environments e.g. Restaurant/Normal speech.
  • Surround Sound Processor - This processes the different frequencies to preserve the sound quality. It also has a built in wind noise control system.
  • DFS (Digital Feedback Suppression – Eliminates the whistling noise caused by feedback.
  • Advanced Noise Tracker II - This is a sophisticated system that helps to remove background noise leaving speech clearer. It can be programmed for two different levels on the Alera TS 5.
  • Onboard Analyzer II – This feature allows your audiologist to analyse the data from your hearing aid by logging the activity that takes place. The audiologist can then feed the data into a computer and review it.
  • Softswitching – This feature detects levels of sound and speech then slowly adapts the microphones to ensure a continuous comfortable listening environment.
  • Adaptive Directionality – Rather than the focus of the microphone being fixed in one direction (i.e. forwards), this feature means that the hearing aid will detect which direction the speech is coming from and adjust the microphone to attain the best sound quality.

 

Like the other Alera models, the Alera TS 5 features their innovative iSolate Nanotech technology. Using nanotechnology, they apply a highly waterproof coating to the hearing aid. This can prolong the life of the hearing aid by protecting it from substances such as earwax or water. 

 

Again, like the other Alera models, the Alera TS 5 has wireless capability. Unlike many manufacturers, Resound hearing aids do not require an additional neck loop to be worn in order to receive the signal. It is beamed directly from your TV streamer to the hearing aids.

 

Accessories include:

 

  • ReSound Unite TV
  • ReSound Unite Mini Microphone
  • ReSound Unite Remote Control
  • ReSound Unite Phone Clip

 

 

In conclusion, despite being the third level of technology down, the Alera TS 5 still has a good range of features. It still has wireless capability, feedback suppression and noise reduction but at only 9 channels, it has 8 less than both the Alera TS 9 and TS 7. It still has the same ability to help with tinnitus noise management. It is just as cosmetic as the rest of the Alera range and is available in a range of colours.
