The telephone mode makes both of your hearing aids work together for better clarity when using the phone. The non-telephone aid will turn down to minimise distractions and the aid that you use the phone with will turn up to help you hear the conversation. If you make any changes to the memory settings or volume, both hearing aids will synchronise and change at the same time

- Acuity Directionality - The directional microphones help you to focus on speech in busy environments with lots of background noise.
- Speech ID - This program recognises which direction speech is coming from and focuses the microphones on that area.
- Binaural Spatial Mapping - This program assesses your environment and makes adjustments to the directional microphones to help hearing clarity. It can also reduce the effect of loud sounds by softening them, without distorting other sounds, for hearing comfort.
