Extend Fitting Assistant

New! Fitting Assistant

Guide the conversation with your patient to facilitate a successful fitting. Organized by topic (Loudness, Own voice, Speech, Sound quality, Noise) and complaint, you can identify a problem together, and EXPRESSfit® Pro will offer an appropriate solution.

 
Adaptive Feedback Canceller Pro icon

Adaptive Feedback Canceller Pro

A 2-in-1 system for better feedback control. A feedback monitor, an adaptive filter, and phase cancellation ensure that signals coming from the output of the receiver are subtracted from the microphone’s input to cancel feedback from the static feedback path. A fast-acting supplementary system manages feedback associated with sudden, unpredictable changes from the dynamic feedback path.

  • Feedback cancelled in both stable and changing conditions
  • Improved audibility of soft speech sounds
  • More open fittings for a natural, own-voice sound

Frequency Transfer icon

Frequency Transfer

Helps people who have difficulty receiving high-frequency signals from their hearing aids by transferring them to a lower frequency region with better residual hearing. With up to 10 destination ranges, 7 intensity settings, high-frequency attenuation, and manual activation in fitting software, you can choose the right options for your patient

Extended Dynamic Range icon

Extended Dynamic Range

To clarify loud sounds, many Sonic devices offer Extended Dynamic Range (EDR) technology that expands the dynamic range of sound up to 113 dB SPL. As sounds grow in intensity, EDR provides clarity — especially helpful in movie theaters, performances, auditoriums, and other places where sudden dramatic sounds really make the moment.

 
Tinnitus icon

Tinnitus SoundSupport

This technology reduces a patient’s perception of tinnitus by providing amplification and generating sound relief options at the same time.

  • Customizable with sounds that vary in level and frequency content
  • Patients can control the relief sound volume manually
  • Choose from a varied selection of nature sounds or broadband sounds
 
Binaural Noise Management icon

Binaural Noise Management

Uses wireless technology to offset unpredictable noises that affect one side more than the other. Binaural Noise Management compares noise levels at each ear and reduces the loudest noise for a more balanced sound. Available in a range of devices and technology levels. Other noise reduction technologies include:

  • Impulse Noise Reduction lessens the discomfort of sudden, loud sounds
  • Wind Noise Reduction adjusts to outside activities
  • Soft Noise Reduction reduces low-level noise

  • Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) provides fast ear-to-ear communication
 
IFTTT icon

IFTTT

Sonic devices can connect to other smart devices on The Internet of Things, using the If This Then That (IFTTT) network. Users can get audible signals for an email received or an alert when someone’s at the front door. When its power is low, the hearing aids can send a text message to remind your patient to change the battery. New uses for IFTTT are appearing every day, with smart devices like these:

  • Entertainment systems
  • Electricity and thermostat controllers
  • Car stereos or remote starters
  • Smartphone apps
  • Home security systems and kitchen devices
