Oticon has unveiled the Safari Super Power hearing aid for children with severe to profound hearing loss.
Unlike conventional super power instruments that sacrifice speech resolution to obtain the necessary audibility, Safari SP is designed to provide not only audibility but also the higher signal fidelity and comfort that children with severe-to-profound hearing loss need to preserve the speech signal in its most natural and undistorted form. The benefit is an enhanced ability to function in complex listening environments with confidence and reduced fatigue at the end of the day.
Children with extreme hearing loss need access to as many sounds as possible. The negative consequences of traditional compression on important speech cues can limit a child’s ability to function in dynamic sound environments such as the classroom, sports field or playground.
The child-friendly Safari SP is engineered to not only amplify sound to achieve sufficient loudness but also to deliver the speech intelligibility children with severe-to-profound hearing loss require to interact more naturally and to participate more actively in life’s everyday adventures. Speech Guard ensures clear and consistent auditory input to keep speech sounding natural while providing optimum intelligibility.
Safari SP opens an exciting world of connectivity to young people with severe-to-profound hearing loss. Effortless wireless connection to TVs, PCs, mobile phones and mp3 players is now possible through Oticon’s Connectline Streamer remote control and the ConnectLine system that stream audio directly to the child’s hearing instruments.
Equipped to meet the ups-and-downs of active children and teens, the sturdy Safari SP features a full-body nano-coating and internal deep coating designed to repel water, sweat and dirt.
