Signia / Siemens Binax 3
The Siemens Binax 3 is the entry level technology option in the Binax range. It is a 24 channel aid and it has less features than the Binax 5 or Binax 7 but uses the same base processing chip. All models are suitable all hearing loss apart from profound. Main features Binaxfocus BinaxFocus focuses your hearing more tightly towards relevant speach sounds when you are in a noisy environment such as a restaurant. Binaxsound BinaxSound shares the incoming sounds between both hearing aids to provide HD (High Definition) sound quality. 24 Channels The Binax 3 contains 24 channels which is more any other entry level hearing aid there is, and in fact more than most other hearing aids altogether. The Binax’s way of using channels is different to other manufacturers however so this particular hearing aid shouldn’t be compared to others on channels alone. e2e Wireless You get a binaural hearing effect by having the two hearing aids communicate wirelessly which means that your hearing aids work more naturally like your actual ears to process sounds together as one unit. e2e wireless is what powers the above features, binaxsound and binaxfocus. Other features eWindscreen This program attenuates the crackling sound you can get in your hearing aids when wind hits them. Sound Smoothing Sudden loud sounds are reduced before you hear them. The hearing aid reacts quickly so that sounds such as slamming doors are less jarring. Tinnitus Noiser The hearing aid can help to distract you from the sounds of your tinnitus by playing a range of sounds when you are in a quiet environment, which is often where you are more likely to notice your tinnitus. Feedback Cancellation The squealing sound of feedback that can happen when something gets too close to your aids is removed before you hear it. This is done without any distortion of sound quality.
