Audiology Overview All Interton hearing aids have a strong focus on user comfort, flexibility and design. This audiology overview gives you a short introduction to the various features we provide in our state of the art hearing aids. You can find more information in the fitting software Appraise 2.4 and online at www.interton.com

NEW Integrated Directionality Integrated Directionality is Interton’s latest state of the art feature available exclusively in Step 6 for improving a listener’s ability to hear everything around them. It provides a natural and comfortable auditory experience while allowing the user to listen to what they find most interesting, even in challenging acoustic environments. By utilizing Interton’s 2.4 GHz technology with earto-ear communication, both hearing instruments work together wirelessly to determine the ideal setting for the environment. The result is an improvement in clarity of sounds while at the same time maintaining awareness of surroundings.

Acclimatization Manager Acclimatization Manager gradually increases gain over time to eventually achieve prescribed levels. This allows a new user to adapt to amplification comfortably and seamlessly. It can also be beneficial in cases where a new user is unable to return to the dispenser for follow-up for an extended period of time.

6


Adaptive Wind Noise Reduction With Adaptive Wind Noise Reduction, users won't miss out on important conversations, even in windy conditions. Whether they’re hiking, cycling, golfing, sailing or skiing, they can enjoy life in any outdoor environment without compromising sound quality or speech understanding.

Comfort Phone Comfort Phone enables users to focus on what’s important during a phone conversation, even in a noisy situation. When a phone is placed close to a hearing aid on one ear, the volume for the hearing aid on the other ear is automatically decreased. Background noise is reduced yet still audible, maintaining awareness of surroundings.

Ear-to-Ear communication Interton’s Ear-to-Ear communication makes enjoying life much easier with innovative synchronization of volume control and push button adjustments. By simply changing the setting on one hearing aid, the other hearing aid automatically adjusts to the same setting, effortlessly keeping them in balance.

Environmental Gain Tuner Environmental Gain Tuner optimizes gain settings for better listening experiences in up to seven different environments. As the user moves from one acoustic environment to another, the gain offset for that specific environment is automatically applied. It’s the perfect feature for active people who encounter a wide variety of listening situations.

Feedback Manager Plus, with Music Mode Feedback Manager Plus removes feedback and whistling when an object such as a phone is near the ear, or when users hug a loved one. Additionally, Music mode differentiates the desired sounds of music from unwanted feedback, ensuring that music comes through with amazing clarity and without distortion or artifacts.

7


Frequency Shifting Interton’s Frequency Shifting feature takes valuable information that might not be heard by those with limited high frequency hearing and shifts it to a lower frequency range. By providing audibility for these sounds, the user is able to receive important speech information they might have otherwise missed.

Personal Noise Reduction The Environmental Gain Tuner and Personal Noise Reduction together optimize gain and noise reduction settings for a better listening experience in up to seven different acoustic environments. When the hearing aid recognizes one of these environments, it automatically applies the appropriate gain and noise reduction for that specific environment. This ensures that users always experience maximum comfort and audibility in every environment they encounter.

Nano Coating - increased lifetime, fewer repairs All Interton hearing aids are treated with Nano Coating, which forms a protective layer on both the outer shell of the hearing aid and all the electronics inside. Nano Coating protects the hearing aids from moisture and dust, prevents corrosion, and greatly improves reliability resulting in fewer repairs and more satisfied customers.

8


Sure Fit Receivers and Domes The Sure Fit Receiver Series features improvements in acoustic performance including increased output and fitting ranges. Four new receivers and three new domes are cosmetically appealing and small in size for optimal physical comfort and fit. Please note that all Interton hearing aids being Centro 6, 4, 2 and Step 6 introduced in 2015 and beyond use the new Sure Fit receivers.
