Inside Velocity

Velocity solutions are meant to meet individual lifestyle, budget, and hearing needs. No matter the model, Velocity has the right technologies in the right solution.

To Sound Natural, Mimic Nature

Velocity takes advantage of Sonic Sound — a technology platform that mimics your ear. Just like your cochlea, Sonic Sound detects sound at different frequencies and levels, then adjusts the sound for your unique hearing loss.

The system works by applying different amounts of amplification based on the loudness of the sound coming into the hearing aid. For soft background sounds that could be annoying, very little if any amplification is applied. At sound levels where speech is typically present, maximum amplification is applied. For sounds that are very loud, amplification is reduced to prevent these sounds from becoming uncomfortable.

 

To Improve Performance, Reduce Unwanted Background Noise

Velocity also incorporates noise reduction systems to make listening more pleasant. After all, you don’t want everything around you to be louder — just the sounds and speech that are most important.

The noise reduction solutions in Velocity are specifically designed to improve speech understanding in noise. These systems constantly monitor sounds to separate steady-state background noise from modulated speech. If the system detects that there is more noise than speech, the noise reduction system engages.

 

To Improve Understanding in Noise, Direct the Sound

Velocity offers several directional technologies to improve hearing in noisy situations. For example, the patented DIRECTIONALfocus system creates a focus area in front of the listener — like a listening “beam.” Sounds within the beam are amplified more; Velocity varies how much sounds are reduced when they move outside of the beam. Some Velocity products have automatic and adaptive directional options that provide hands-free operation in a wide variety of listening environments.

 

Automatic Options

Velocity is ready for most listening situations thanks to its Universal listening environment. This feature automatically adjusts the settings of your instrument based on the sounds around you. It instantaneously analyzes factors like ambient noise, the location of noise, and the overall signal-to-speech ratio. You won’t notice it’s making adjustments, but you’ll certainly appreciate the hands-free improvements it brings.

 

Voice Alerts

Many hearing instruments give a series of beeps to indicate what listening program you’re using. Some Velocity models go a step further with Voice Alerts. By using simple words and eliminating guesswork, Voice Alerts tell you what program you’re using and when the battery is low.
