Starkey Laboratories Inc, Eden Prairie, Minn, has expanded its Destiny line to include the new Destiny mini with BluWave signal processing, a behind-the-ear hearing aid with the best-in-class features in a discreet, comfortable package.
The mini provides fitting flexibility, and with its instant-fit capability available in open and occluded earbuds, the mini can be fit with thin or standard tubing.
The Destiny line offers features such as:
- Active feedback intercept (AFI), which provides up to 25 dB of added stable gain, delivering more audible speech to wearers.
- Directional speech detector (DSD), an automatic system optimized by BluWave Signal Processing. With free-field and KEMAR DIs available, and the lowest operational noise floor, patients are comfortable and speech is audible in almost any situation.
- Acoustic signature characterizes incoming sounds by sorting the frequency, timing, and intensity of the sound sources and applies optimal frequency and compression parameters.
- Automatic telephone response (ATR) automatically adjusts the hearing aid for telephone use.
