Resound Alera 4
Features include • 7 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. • 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 – Eliminates the whistling noise caused by feedback. • Advanced Noise Tracker II – This is a sophisticated system that helps to remove background noise leaving speech clearer. Unlike the more advanced Alera models, the Alera 4 can only be programmed for one level. • 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. • Adaptive Directionality – Rather than the focus of the microphone being fixed in one direction (i.e. forwards), this feature means that the hearing aid will detect which direction the speech is coming from and adjust the microphone to attain the best sound quality. The Alera 4 also features iSolate Nanotech technology, the highly waterproof coating applied to all Alera models. This can prolong the life of the hearing aid by protecting it from substances such as earwax or water. Some models in the Alera 4 range have wireless capability. Unlike many manufacturers, Resound hearing aids do not require an additional neck loop to be worn in order to receive the signal. It is beamed directly from your TV streamer to the hearing aids.
