Oticon has unveiled a new hearing aid designed for first time hearing aid users that’s effectively invisible when inserted into the ear.
The Intigai, a custom built device, is being introduced at the American Academy of Audiology AudiologyNOW! conference in Boston.
From the announcement:
New Intigai fits comfortably and invisibly deep in the ear canal and offers advanced audiological features that enable wearers to hear better, with less effort, even in the most demanding listening situations. The secure, custom-made fit means that the tiny hearing instrument stays protected and secure during physical activity and allows easy use of phones and headsets.
Super tiny, ultra sleek, high-performance Intigai is designed to improve first-time users’ ability to hear and understand conversation and other everyday sounds with less listening effort, even in difficult listening situations such as restaurants, conference rooms or sporting events. Advanced audiological features, including Oticon’s proprietary SpeechGuard technology, work in harmony with the brain to recognize speech cues and make it easier to separate conversation from background noise. Placement close to the eardrum enables the fully automatic hearing instrument to use the natural acoustics of the ear to deliver a pleasing, transparent sound quality.
