Innovations

To continually optimise the wearing of our hearing systems, we are constantly on the lookout for new and better solutions. Here are a few selected examples.

For our in-the-ear hearing systems

Technician in the Atelier

The ComforClean coating developed using nanotechnology is dirt-resistant so it makes cleaning extremely straightforward. This coating comes as standard.

The ComforMed coating is also a nanotechnology development. Using a patented, antibacterial, antifungal nanofinish containing silver, it promotes natural climatic conditions in the auditory canal, thus preserving the ear’s natural equilibrium. This significantly enhances wearer comfort for ITE hearing systems.

Microsafe is the world’s first microphone filter that effectively reduces wind noise right where it originates: at the ear. It also protects against soiling. Not only is hearing comfort increased, but the hearing system also has less downtime and far fewer repairs are needed.

Our HF3 wax guard and the much smaller HF4 wax guard prevents dirt from penetrating through the speaker opening into the hearing system, protecting it from possible damage. This effectively extends the overall service life of the device.

Audiomatic power on delay prevents the whistling noise that can occur when you insert the hearing systems.

For our behind-the-ear systems

We provide a special microphone protector for these systems. It’s called Audioclip. It not only makes it easier to distinguish the two sides because of its colour coding (blue or red), but also prevents soiling of the hearing system and stops disruption of your hearing caused by hair rustling. It is installed as standard in almost all BTE systems.

We also offer a range of useful extras available for almost all BTE systems: the spectacles adapter so you can wear hearing systems and spectacles at the same time without any problems, the child's earhook that sits safely and comfortably on small ears, and the audioshoe for straightforward connection of the hearing system to external sound sources such as televisions.

At our production facility

Computer-assisted production

The introduction of computer-assisted production in 2004 was a milestone in the manufacture of in-the-ear hearing systems. This new technology allows in-the-ear hearing systems to be manufactured very precisely and in one piece. Not only does this make the systems more discreet, it has also paved the way for new solutions. It has rendered possible to produce an open in-the-ear hearing system that only closes off the auditory canal to a minimal extent, making the system very comfortable to wear.
