Siemens Hearing Instruments, Inc. has just announced the upcoming launch of the company’s new Aquaris system, which the company claims is the first waterproof, dustproof, and shock-resistant hearing aid. The Aquaris uses Siemens’ BestSound algorithms which have proven effective at improving sound quality in previous hearing aids, and conforms to the internationally recognized IP57 standard for dust and water resistance.
From the press release:
With a housing constructed from one solid piece, watertight microphone membrane and a waterproof battery compartment, Aquaris can be submerged in up to three feet of water. It features an ergonomic shape and non-slip, textured surface that holds the Aquaris behind the ear to help prevent slipping. In addition, it has an optional Sport Clip to secure the instrument during intense movement and high-impact activities and a water-resistant Aquapac to protect audio devices.
Aquaris is equipped with Siemens clinically proven BestSound™ Technology with FeedbackStopper™ and SpeechFocus™ for true sound comfort, clarity and excellent speech understanding, and the industry’s most stable feedback management system.
