Naída B provides fitting flexibility with Adaptive Phonak Digital Contrast, a new slow compression option which increases the envelope cues for speech. It also utilises dedicated features such as Binaural VoiceStream Technology™ for improved speech understanding and SoundRecover2 for more audibility of high frequency sounds. With the enhanced Roger and directional listening effort in the near field is significantly reduced.
Adaptive Phonak Digital Contrast
With the new Adaptive Phonak Digital Contrast fitting formula we introduce a slow compression option. Through longer attack and release times, the spectral contrast, as well as the speech signal modulations are better preserved. This increases the envelope cues for speech compared to Adaptive Phonak Digital, so it is now possible to get closer to the original speech signal and make these lost details in speech more pronounced again. Audiological research shows that this leads to improved vowel recognition for some adults with severe to profound hearing loss.6
As hearing loss increases, SoundRecover2 improves speech audibility and utilizes an adaptive frequency lowering algorithm. Sound quality of mid and low frequencies are maintained while high-frequency sounds are made audible. This creates an optimal listening experience for more users.
Binaural VoiceStream Technology™
Binaural VoiceStream Technology is the ability of Phonak hearing aids to stream the full audio bandwidth in real-time and bi-directionally for improved speech understanding and reduced listening effort in challenging listening situations. This unique technology enables programs and features such as StereoZoom, Speech in Wind, Speech in 360°, and DuoPhone.
Robust and reliable
Thanks to glass fiber reinforced housing material, Naída B is very robust which gives the client optimal confidence. In addition, the housings are water and dust resistant with an IP68 rating. This indicates that the hearing aid survived continuous immersion in 1 meter of water for 60 minutes and 8 hours in a dust chamber.
Roger and directional
With the Roger and directional setting, adults have access to the proven benefits of directional hearing aid microphones throughout their day when using Roger. The enhanced setting will activate the directional microphone even at lower noise levels, giving adults access to their peers at softer conversational levels. In Phonak Target, the program `Roger + Mic’ offers a choice of three microphone modes: omnidirectional, Real Ear Sound and an automatically activated fixed directional.
RogerReady makes adding a Roger receiver to a hearing aid simple and easy. Without the need for additional programming, devices with direct audio input and a Roger ear-level receiver automatically detect the signal from a Roger microphone and activate the `Roger + Mic’ program.
