2 Year Warranty
This hearing aid comes complete with a 2 year warranty which covers your hearing aid for malfunction, breakdown or faulty workmanship during that time.
Simply put, the number of channels determines how finely your hearing aid can be tuned to best suit your individual level of hearing loss. The more channels the hearing aid has, the more it can be finely tuned to give you the most natural and effective hearing experience.
Programmes are memory settings within the hearing aid, set up for you by your Hearing Aid Audiologist, that allow the hearing aid to operate at its optimum potential within specific listening environments. For example, if you regularly attend the theatre your Hearing Aid Audiologist could set a ‘Theatre programme’ which would have the ideal settings to help you hear the actors on the stage. Another programme might be set for you to listen to your TV whilst another might be optimized for use in noisy restaurants where you could need more amplification with a higher level of background noise reduction.
With manual programmes you have to manually switch the hearing aid to the appropriate programme yourself to get the tailored support you need for that specific environment.
Directional microphones prioritise the sounds coming from a certain direction while suppressing background noise from other directions.
Selective directionality gives you the ability to choose in which direction to focus the microphones on your hearing aid and so your hearing. It’s perfect for instances where you may not be facing a speaker such as listening to a passenger in a car or where the sound source is coming consistently from one direction. This feature can be selected manually or often with the use of a remote control.
Natural Ear Sound
This helps you to determine which direction sound is coming from.
High Frequency Recover
In the majority of cases of hearing loss, high frequency sounds are affected, so people struggle to hear sounds like birdsong, children’s voices. High frequency recover is an effective way to extend a person’s range of hearing by restoring a proportion of these high-frequency sounds so that even people with moderate to severe hearing loss can hear more of what they want to hear.
Feedback is the name given to the whistling sound that you may have heard coming from, typically, older or analogue hearing aids. Feedback occurs when sound leaves the hearing aid receiver and loops back through your hearing aid microphone, where it's amplified a second time into a whistle or squeal. The feedback suppression feature identifies this feedback and suppresses it, providing you with better quality, more comfortable hearing – and no whistling!
Wind Noise Reduction
Hearing aids with wind noise reduction automatically sense wind conditions and suppress related noise for comfort. They’re particularly useful for people who spend a lot of time outdoors, whether walking in the countryside, by the sea, or playing golf.
Enhances the experience of listening to music by bringing out the rich, full tones in the melodies creating a more satisfying and rewarding listening experience.
This small hand held control (can be in the format of a pager, watch or key fob device) allows you to alter the settings of your hearing aid, like increasing the volume or switching programmes easily and discreetly.
Enjoy seamless automatic adaptation to all sound environments; regardless of what you want to listen to, the hearing aids will adjust themselves automatically, continuously and seamlessly to provide a unique listening program specifically suited to each situation.
The hearing aid remembers and ‘logs’ your usage patterns, for example the settings and programmes you use, how long you wear your hearing aid for etc. allowing your Hearing Aid Audiologist to better adjust and personalise your settings at your follow up appointments.
If you wear two hearing aids, then just one touch on the programme selection button or volume control on one hearing aid results in instant, identical changes in the other hearing aid. This ensures that the volume and programme settings are always balanced, with minimal effort from you.
The exact features will depend on the style and size of hearing aid you choose, but your Boots hearing aid audiologist can explain this all during your free consultation.
