Resound Alera 7 Non Wireless
he Alera 7 is the second level of technology currently available from ReSound. Like the Alera 9 it has a wide range of models from very small custom in the ear models to the behind the ear ranges. Features include • 17 Channels – Each channel processes a range of frequencies so the more channels you have, the more specifically it can be programmed to suit your hearing needs. • Three Programmes – This allows you to programme the hearing aid for different situations or environments e.g. Concerts, restaurants, and normal conversation. • Surround Sound Processor – This processes the different frequencies to preserve the sound quality. It also has a built in wind noise control system. • DFS (Digital Feedback Suppression – This removes the whistling noise that can sometimes occur. • Advanced Noise Tracker II – This is a sophisticated system that helps to remove background noise leaving speech clearer. It can be programmed for three different levels on the Alera 7. • Onboard Analyzer II – This feature allows your audiologist to analyse the data from your hearing aid by logging the activity that takes place. The audiologist can then feed the data into a computer and review it. • Softswitching – This feature detects levels of sound and speech then slowly adapts the microphones to ensure a continuous comfortable listening environment. • MultiScope Adaptive Directionality – This refers to the microphone settings. Using this feature, your audiologist can programme the microphones to respond to different sounds and change the focus of the microphones accordingly. Like the Alera 9, the Alera 7 comes with iSolate Nanotech technology. This new process involves using nanotechnology to apply a highly waterproof coating to the hearing aid. This can prolong the life of the hearing aid by protecting it from substances such as earwax or water.
