March 2017 update - All RIC and BTE models have now been superseded by the newer "Tempus" range.

November 2015 update - All in the ear models are now available. These are called the "Stride" models.

The Unitron North 700 is the mid-tier hearing aid. It uses the new "North" processor. It is ideally for people who have a moderately active lifestyle and need to hear well when out and about in shops, cafe's and other social situations with medium levels of interfering noise.

Moxi north range

  • Moxi Fit  The Moxi "Fit" is a great looking aid, it is barely noticable that it is slightly bigger than the Moxi Kiss. This is because it includes a push button for program changes or controlling the volume and also a telecoil.
  • Moxi Kiss  The "Kiss" is the discrete and tiny of the three Moxi's. The winner of two 2015 design awards it is perfect if you do not want the extra features which add size to the Moxi Dura and Moxi Fit.
  • Moxi Dura  Considering that the "Dura" is mainly for those with a severe to profound hearing loss and therefore is required to provide a lot higher amplification, it isn't much bigger than the Moxi Fit.
 
Main Features

Soundnav
The Unitron North chip identifies where you are and is pre-programmed with five separate environmental variants (out of the seven below) The aim is always to keep the main focus on speech that is in front of you and the aids will change between the different environmental settings to achieve this. These environments are;
  • Conversations in quiet
  • Conversations in a small group
  • Conversations in a crowd
  • Conversations in noise
  • General noise without speech present
  • Quiet
  • Music
Multiband adaptive directionality
This feature has a similar effect to the more advanced "Speechzone" feature of the higher end aids. It can't home in on speech in the same way but it instead looks for background noise and suppresses it in order to help you hear speech more clearly.
 
Pinna effect
The Pinna is your outer ear. The natural "Pinna effect" is what your ear does naturally, acting like a funnel to collect sounds. This hearing aid replicates this effect despite being sat on the back of your pinna.
 
Antishock
Short sudden sounds such as dropping a plate can be very loud with some hearing aids. Antishock makes the hearing aid react straight away to stop these sounds before you hear them.
 
Binaural Phone
To help with voice clarity on the telephone, this feature streams the phone signal to both hearing aids for a stereo sound effect when listening on the phone.
 
Water Resistant
IP57 standards of water and dust resistance. Absolutely not waterproof, no scuba diving in them.
 
Other features
The North 700 includes other features such as Easy-t, Feedback manager, Tinnitus masker,  Windcontrol, Log it all, Flex system, Natural sound balance, Duo-link, datalogging. Detailed descriptions of these would make for a pretty long article so if you want any of them explaining then we're happy for you to call or email us to ask.
 
There are five technology levels. The options are the North ProNorth 800North 700North 600 and North 500
