Oticon announces latest hearing aid, Nera
Oticon’s powerful and efficient Inium wireless signal processor is driving a range of advanced audiological features in Oticon Nera, the newest hearing solution family from Oticon. A unique combination of advanced technologies enables Nera to deliver excellent performance, reduced effort and more personalized fittings not previously available in a mid-priced hearing solution.
The Inium chip at the core of Nera provides exceptional performance, small size and ultra-low power consumption in a hearing device that can be shaped to individual patients’ hearing needs and sound preferences. Nera gives users the ability to communicate more freely and better maintain an active lifestyle throughout each day.
“With Nera, for the first time, we bring the Inium platform and its outstanding performance and personalization capabilities to the mid-level category,” said Oticon President Peer Lauritsen. “Nera goes beyond any mid-level hearing solution we have ever produced, raising the bar for speech understanding, sound quality and listening effort. And Nera’s extensive fitting personalization capabilities enable hearing care professionals to empower and satisfy more patients than ever before.”
Advanced Capabilities to Support Active Lifestyles
Hearing care professionals can now offer more patients exceptional clarity and sound comfort in a solution personalized to individual hearing and lifestyle needs.
- Spatial Sound Advanced in Nera Pro combines broad bandwidths, flat frequency responses, real-time binaural processing, and open fittings to convey a higher dimension of spatial awareness and create a more realistic soundscape for users.
- Inium feedback shield protects users against unwanted feedback and artifacts to ensure signal fidelity, optimal audibility, sound quality and comfort, even in difficult listening situations.
- Free Focus Advanced provides four modes of directionality, including the new Optimized Omni mode that mimics the natural front focus of the pinna, giving users the freedom to focus on the sounds that are most important to them.
More Options to Empower and Satisfy
Hearing care professionals can address each patient’s unique perception and enjoyment of sound with YouMatic Advanced, embedded in the updated and improved Genie 2013.2. Oticon’s Personalization Process creates a richer, more engaging and productive experience for patients and builds a foundation for achieving a higher level of patient satisfaction.
Nera’s wireless connectivity empowers users to take full advantage of the newly updated Oticon ConnectLine system, offering multiple opportunities for integrated wireless connectivity. Users can connect easily and wirelessly to landline and cell phones, most digital office phones, TVs, music, video chatting and streaming, teleloop, FM system and more.
With a full range of style options, including the flexible Inium custom manufacturing process, Nera meets more patients’ personal needs for comfort and performance. Nera RITE and miniRITE solutions use a new generation of receivers and domes called miniFit that set new standards in performance, physical fit and reliability. All Nera RITE- and BTE-style solutions are IP57 classified to prevent water, dust and debris from getting inside.
