Features

We focus on functional technology that works - and works well
Interton has been owned by one of the world’s largest hearing aid manufacturers, the GN Group, since 2005 - and our technology is based on GN's. We use GN's proven core technology in a way that matches our own way of doing things. The result is Essential Hearing: functional hearing aids that are easy-to-use in everyday situations.

Below you can read about our proven features and see videos about the features. 



SOUND PROCESSING
Gain Handles
The handles allow the acoustician to adjust frequencies in the Fitting Software.
Comfort Programs
The maximum amount of programs available for different settings, such as Comfort Program, Telephone Program and Music Program. 
Logarithmic WDRC
WDRC ensures that soft sounds are audible and keeps loud sounds comfortable. 

NOISE REDUCTION
Noise Reduction
Reduces background noise. 
Microphone  Noise Reduction 
Reduces soft noise, primarily internal noise in directional settings (the noise that is most noticeable in quiet environments). 
Wind Noise Reduction
Reduces the noisy effects of wind turbulence around the microphone for less tiring listening in outdoor environments.
Personal Noise Reduction 
Automatically changes the amount of noise reduction applied based on an estimate of the signal-to-noise ratio. It reduces noise by a smaller degree in quiet situations and adds a more aggressive setting for noisy situation. 

SPEECH UNDERSTANDING
Integrated Directionality
Provides a natural and comfortable auditory experience while allowing the user to listen to what they find most interesting, even in challenging acoustic environments. By utilizing Interton’s 2.4 GHz technology with ear to- ear communication, both hearing instruments work together wirelessly to determine the ideal setting for the environment. The result is an improvement in clarity of sounds while at the same time maintaining awareness of surroundings.

Fixed Directionality
Improves speech understanding in noisy environments when the noise comes from a constant direction. 
Speech-focused Directionality
Provides full-time benefit through directionality in situations where the signal-to-noise ratio can be improved. It does this by reducing the overall level of the primary noise source from behind. If the noise source moves, the system will track this in real time to keep the noise source at a reduced level. 
Automatic Beam Width
Helps the user stay focused on speech in noisy ambient surroundings. 
Auto-steered Directionality
Improves the signal-to-noise ratio in noisy situations by recognizing speech cues, and also provides comfort with omni-directionality in noise only or quiet situations. 
SoundScape Technology
SoundScape effectively mimics the natural sound collection of the human ear, through a unique processing of the low and high frequencies. 

FEEDBACK MANAGEMENT
Feedback Manager Plus
Effectively controls feedback while preserving gain, even when people or objects come close to the device.
Adaptive Feedback Cancellation
Offers robust static and dynamic feedback cancellation by phase inversion, with no reduction in amplification. 

SPECIALS
Data Logging
Displays hearing aid usage and environmental data. After the instruments are programmed in the Fitting Software and switched on, they start to collect data and learn after five minutes of use. At a follow-up visit, you can open Data logging and see the statistics. 
Environmental Gain Tuner
Defines situation-dependent gain changes for optimization of the listening experience in different environments. As soon as the device recognizes one of the acoustic environments, the gain offset for that environment applies automatically. 
Acclimatization Manager
The acclimatization manager allows the device to slowly and automatically increase gain over a long period of time to help the customer to get used to amplification in a comfortable way. 

PROTECTION
Nano Coating
This is a polymer layer, one thousand times thinner than a human hair, that forms a protective coating on every part of the hearing device. 

BASICS
Signal tones
Indicates when you switch between programs or have a low battery. 
Volume control
To adjust volume manually whenever you need to.
Push button
Push button enables you to manually switch between programs when you encounter different environments. 
Telecoil 
In public places such as churches, theatres and airports, a telecoil solution transmits the sound signal directly to the hearing aid. 
Stand-by mode
Sends the hearing aid into a low-power ‘snooze’ mode, which helps maximize battery life. 
Open/thin tube fitting
The open fitting allows for even more airflow and a more natural sound perception. 
Power-on-delay
Delays amplification for a few seconds, to increase user comfort upon device insertion.
Learning volume control
Learns the client’s volume preferences in various sound environments, and then automatically adjusts the volume to the preferred levels in each environment. 
Bass Boost
Equalize the low frequency gain roll-off that is caused when the fixed directionality function is activated.
DAI (BTEs)
A Direct Audio Input (DAI) can be used in conjunction with the device. This enables you to use FM systems and other applications (eg. in schools).
