Pediatric, specialty and tinnitus products made by Unitron
Unitron does not offer products exclusively geared towards infants, toddlers and teens. However, their BTE products are equipped with some features that can be helpful for the pediatric population such as direct audio input (DAI), essential for classroom learning.
Unitron offers a unique feature called Flex that allows an interactive try-before-you-buy customized experience perfect for first-time hearing aid wearers. The Flex program also offers easy technology upgrades and the ability for wearers to provide real-time feedback about their hearing aid experience directly to their hearing healthcare professional using a smartphone app. Flex can help providers better accommodate your preferences.
All technology levels and all product families offered by Unitron contain a tinnitus masking feature that can, with the guidance of your hearing care professional, help you overcome tinnitus and make it less noticeable while you are wearing your hearing aids.
