With the launch of sound SHD stream, the Hamburg, Germany-based hearing system provider HANSATON is presenting its latest receiver-in-canal hearing system (RIC) in the sound SHD product family, which has binaural features for what Hansaton calls “a natural hearing experience,” connecting directly to Bluetooth® capable* telephones and smartphones with 2.4 GHz wireless technology.

The RIC hearing system can be connected to the television and any Bluetooth® capable telephone*, according to HANSATON. Telephone and video calls by smartphone, tablet, or computer can also be answered with a click of the program button, which is designed to be “easy to locate” given its shape. Hands-free phone calls—in the car or while cooking—are possible for all operating systems, in short “Made For All” (MFA), for various manufacturers of Bluetooth® capable* telephones. Just as with all of HANSATON’s HearIntelligence™ hearing systems, the sound SHD stream is designed to support binaural hearing intelligence with language, localization, and optimization functions.

* With Bluetooth® 4.2 and most older Bluetooth telephones
