Stfa, Switzerland, April 2007 With Una, the new entry-level hearing instrument, Phonak makes outstanding sound quality available at an affordable price. Una feels comfortable right from the start and guarantees immediate user-acceptance.
It's what users familiar with Phonak's market-leading quality have been waiting for: state-of- the-art technology at an affordable price. Una brings together a raft of exclusive Phonak features in an entry-level device. These include AudioZoom, to suppress noise in problem situations, and the latest Feedback Phase Inverter, which eliminates whistling in all four channels while maintaining great sound quality. Other features include Noise Canceler and BassBoost which are both powerful functions normally found only in higher-class instruments. These outstanding features together with its very easy handling make Una a winning entry-level combination.
Furthermore dispensers will appreciate the fact that IPFG 1.7-compatible Una comes with AudiogramDirect to guarantee simple, fast and precise fitting. It also enables them to measure consumer hearing loss through the device, a feature never seen before in an entry-level instrument. And, as Stefan Schwarz, Director Product Management at Phonak, points out: "The great thing for fitters is that they now have a solution that offers better comfort and sound features as well as more flexibility than any other entry-level instrument from the competition. We're very proud of the fact that we've developed a new instrument below the eXtra level which significantly improves the quality of life for price-sensitive customers." And that, as experience has shown, is the most effective way of achieving high levels of user benefit and satisfaction.
The Una product family comprises a full range of small, attractive custom CICs to discreet power BTE instruments, and even includes a cosmetic slim tube option that makes the hearing instrument nearly invisible. The comprehensive housing color line ranges from high-tech colors to hair and skin shades, and a number of special pediatric solutions.
