Unitron Hearing Aids, Innovation, Quality & Reliability
Unitron Hearing Aids at Island Hearing
At Island Hearing we like to have the availability of several hearing aid manufacturers, that is why we continue to stay an independent hearing healthcare Practice. This gives us the ability to fit the hearing aid that a Patient really needs, not what is dictated to us. One of the Manufacturers we deal with is Unitron, Unitron is part of the Sonova Group, a world wide hearing device manufacturer. Unitron was originally founded by Fred Stork, Rolf Strothman and Rolf Dohmer in Newfoundland Canada. They established Unitron Industries as Canada's first hearing aid manufacturer soon after moving it to Kitchener, Ontario. By 1969 Unitron was offering it's hearing aids internationally to markets worldwide. Since then they have grown from strength to strength and have become known for some particularly innovative strategies.
Innovative hearing aid manufacturer
They have been long recognised as an innovative manufacturer who bring new ideas to the market. An example of this is the introduction of their flex trial platform a couple of years ago. This allows us to demo the exact level of hearing technology you are interested in immediately in the office. So you can remain confident in your purchase decision.
They have a really strong focus on people, employees, partners and the people with hearing loss that they serve. They consistently show their commitment to us with assistance and support on a day to day basis and that is why we like to deal with them. They consistently gather feedback from us in relation to the ongoing experiences of our customers and how their hearing aids are serving them. their hearing aids are reliable, with good quality build and deliver excellent results for our Patients. Without further adieu let's look at the aids and the platforms.

Insera Hearing Aids
Meet The New Unitron Custom Tempus Hearing Aid Range
Unitron has now introduced the custom in the ear hearing aid range on their new Tempus Chipset. Like their sister company Phonak, the Insera hearing aids will use Biometric Calibration, which takes your individual ear anatomy and hearing needs into account.
They say that they will identify over 1600 biometric data points in and on your ear, and the unique calibration settings are calculated for each Insera hearing aid. In this way, the hearing aids are able to more reliably sense where the sound is coming from, thereby giving you access to better hearing performance.
They say that the new process will deliver a 2dB signal to noise ratio improvement. Basically, it means it will make the signal (what you want to listen to) 2dB higher than the noise. While 2dB doesn't sound like much but combined with all the other strategies that Unitron use it should deliver some real improvement. The Insera will be available in six models to match your hearing needs and in all of their usual levels of technology

Stride M R Hearing Aids
A Rechargeable BTE
Unitron has rounded out their rechargeable offerings with a new rechargeable BTE, the Stride M R. It is their first ever rechargeable behind the ear hearing aid. here is what they said.
Wearers simply charge the hearing instrument overnight, for just 5 – 7 hours, and the hearing instrument is ready to perform for a full 24 hours, including 90 minutes of streaming or 16 hours of continuous streaming. Because hearing happens around the clock, Stride M R offers wearers the flexibility to swap rechargeable battery cells with traditional zinc-air batteries at any time, ensuring patients will never run out of charge.
The new rechargeable runs on Silver Zinc rechargeable batteries and a similar charger to their Moxi. It also looks like they have made sure there is an auto on feature when you take the hearing aids out of the charger. Something that many users will welcome. The system that Unitron picked is a pretty good all round rechargeable system. It offers some pretty serious running time and also the benefit of being able to shove disposable batteries in when you forget to charge.
Moxi Hearing Aids
