The Unitron North Pro is the top level of technology using the new "North" processor. As the flagship hearing aid from Unitron it is ideally suited to people who need to hear as well as possible in the most challenging environments.
The hearing aid comes in three distinct styles and has recently won awards for design excellence.
The North chip can tell what type of environment you are currently in and it will decide what settings to use depending on what it finds. There are seven separate environmental types and the aids will adjust themselves automatically as you go along. The main focus will always be on speech sounds. These environments are;
- Conversations in quiet
- Conversations in a small group
- Conversations in a crowd
- Conversations in noise
- General noise without speech present
Speechzone 2 with Binaural spatial processing
When you are in a social environment with background noise present, the hearing aids work together and figure out what where the speech is coming from and they then automatically focus your hearing in that direction.
Multiband adaptive directionality
This tracks and suppresses unwanted background noises from varying directions.
The Pinna is the outside part of your ear. The hearing aid sits slightly behind it. You would expect this to mean you would hear more from the back but using their cunning technology they recreate the natural effects of sounds being collected by the shape of your ear to counteract this.
Sound Conductor is a speech clarifying feature that aims to make speech sounds always as clear as possible but without compromising on sound quality so that they are kept as natural as possible.
The hearing aid acts immediately if it detects a loud or jarring sound to reduce it to a comfortable level.
When you answer the phone, the hearing aid streams the sound to both ears without the use of an extra accessory so you can hear the conversation in stereo.
Water and dust resistant to IP57 standards or better. Absolutely not waterproof, no scuba diving in them.
