Hansaton, Hamburg, Germany, has announced the launch of its most powerful SHD technology-based hearing system yet, designed for people with significant to profound hearing loss. The beat SHD RS13 and beat SHD RS675 are available in two battery sizes, and—as part of the company’s HearIntelligence™ hearing system portfolio—are designed to help users discover more natural hearing. The devices are designed to provide users with advanced hearing loss with precise speech, localization, and optimization functions, spatial acoustics, and a comfortable hearing experience. The beat SHD RS675 is also powerful enough to benefit users whose hearing impairment borders on deafness as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO4), says the company.
The newest version (3.7.0) of Hansaton’s fitting software, scout, offers hearing care professionals the option of beginning the beat SHD fitting process with one of three “power” presets— Classic, Active, or Modern—depending on the individual’s personal preferences and degree of hearing loss. According to the company, the presets use hearing-type clustering to make the fitting process quicker and easier for clinicians, while helping hearing system users achieve a comfortable hearing experience even faster.
The beat SHD product family is available in Performance Levels 3, 5, 7, and 9, depending on the hearing system wearer’s preferences and needs.
Both beat SHD hearing systems have a plasma coating and are certified according to the stringent IP68 standard. The power hearing systems’ modern designer housings feature an easy-to-open battery compartment and an easy-to-find button, and they are available in six attractive color combinations.
Founded in 1957, Hansaton has been part of the Sonova Group since 2015. Together with hearing system professionals and partners, the company develops custom-tailored solutions to help people enjoy optimal hearing experiences. Hansaton hearing systems are now available in more than 70 countries worldwide.
