The latest hearing aid technology now available in Sarasota

It's always great to see new hearing aid releases on the market. Each new release brings improved technology that can benefit our patients. For example, new hearing aids may have better noise reduction, improved speech recognition, or more advanced feedback management. 

We love showing new products to our patients. Here are some of the latest hearing aids available to you in Sarasota, FL:

Oticon Real

Oticon has launched Oticon Real, a new hearing aid solution featuring RealSound Technology, which includes two innovations: Wind & Handling Stabilizer and SuddenSound Stabilizer. The new technology processes complex, unpredictable sounds with high speed and precision to ensure they are audible but not disruptive. Speech and surrounding sounds remain accessible, providing the brain access to the sound scene. 

Oticon Real reduces listening effort by 22% with the new SuddenSound Stabilizer, which balances soft and loud sudden sounds to be audible without disturbing or stealing focus. With double-patented technology, the new Stabilizer detects and cleans up the signal 500 times per second, reducing wind noise and improving speech clarity. 

Oticon Real features four styles and nine color options and is available in three performance levels.

Phonak Lumity

Lumity is a hearing aid with advanced directional microphone technology, including StereoZoom 2.0 and SpeechSensor, to improve speech detection and understanding. The platform includes Phonak SmartSpeech Technology, which focuses on improved speech understanding and reduced listening effort, particularly in challenging environments. 

Additionally, Lumity can be integrated with two optional features, ActiveVent receiver and Roger On, which can further improve speech understanding in difficult situations such as background noise and over-distance. 

The hearing aid is paired with the myPhonak app, enabling users to adjust and create customized programs. The app also allows users to track personal health data. Lumity is also equipped with Phonak's renowned made-for-all connectivity, which supports up to eight pairings and two active connections, making it easy to move between streamed audio from one device to another and to make true hands-free calls.

Phonak Lyric

Lyric is a unique hearing aid that can be worn 24/7, for months at a time, without anyone knowing. Unlike traditional hearing aids, The Lyric sits deep inside the ear canal, using the ear's natural anatomy to provide a clear, realistic sound experience. A trained professional places it inside the ear, which is 100% invisible once in place. Additionally, wearers can replace Lyric devices by themselves if they wish.

One of the most significant benefits of Lyric is that wearers can go about their daily life without disruption, including sleeping, using earphones, playing sports, and even showering. It requires no maintenance or batteries to change or charge, making it hassle-free.

Even while sleeping, Lyric also provides tinnitus relief and is designed to withstand the ear canal's environment for months.

Lyric comes with a magnetic adjustment tool called SoundLync that lets wearers control the volume, turn it on and off, and put it in sleep mode. For those with mild to moderately severe hearing loss, Lyric provides an unparalleled opportunity to experience a complete listening experience with no disruptions.

Widex MOMENT Sheer

The MOMENT Sheer platform builds on the success of Widex MOMENT, which has helped users hear, process, place, and discern sounds in complex environments. 

MOMENT Sheer features advanced software and hardware technologies that support engagement and improved well-being, including a new version of Widex's AI-based customization tool, MySound 2.0. The feature combines artificial intelligence with wearer intent to enable users to hear what they want in various environments. It includes a new customization parameter called compression, allowing wearers to select sounds they want to emphasize, depending on their surroundings.

MOMENT Sheer also includes Widex PureSound with ZeroDelay, which delivers the fastest sound processing available, eliminating artificial sound and preserving listeners' cues for spatial perception, resulting in a more natural sound experience. 

MOMENT Sheer includes two approaches to sound personalization, Made by You and Made for You. Made by You guides users to a better sound through A/B comparisons, allowing them to tailor the experience to their exact listening needs. Made for You uses AI to gather sound preferences from Widex wearers worldwide and instantly distills them into optimized sound recommendations for the wearer.
