Panasonic is releasing a new palm sized hearing instrument for mild to severe hearing loss. Looking like a common mp3 player, the JZ Power WH-105JZ has an LCD screen and a microphone built into the headphones. It features noise reduction, wind noise management, feedback management, L/R balance and Automatic Gain Control (AGC).
There’s also something called Scene Selector Function which provides quick changes depending on the audio environment the user is in including standard, music, party and indoors. It’s powered by an internal rechargeable battery which can be extended by popping in standard AAA’s.
