Hearing aid manufacturer, Rexton, announces the launch of the newest additions to their BiCore portfolio: BiCore B-Li M Rugged, BiCore BTE M, BiCore BTE P, and BiCore BTE HP—all behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids.
According to Rexton product manager, Katie Stocker, the new BiCore B-Li M Rugged is intended for full-time patient use, matching the company’s audio quality with durability enhancements, and a smaller, more discrete size.
“The best hearing aids are ones patients can forget they’re wearing, and the BiCore B-Li M Rugged does just that while featuring dependable audio and a robust Lifeproof design that can withstand the drops, splashes and scratches of everyday life,” commented Stocker. “By reducing the device’s size and increasing its resiliency to the elements, BiCore B-Li M Rugged enables a more carefree patient experience free of interruptions, with long-lasting battery life of up to 39 hours, advanced binaural sound processing and simple audio streaming with iOS and Android devices, ensuring reliable performance in every situation.”
According to the company, the BiCore B-Li M Rugged offers enhanced resistance to water, soap, drops, scratches and even sweat.
“Our new BiCore B-Li M Rugged empowers hearing care professionals (HCPs) to offer patients enhanced device reliability and performance that can significantly impact daily activities, all while reducing the likelihood of damage and subsequent repair or replacement costs,” added Mike O’Neil, President of Rexton. “It’s a win-win that enables improved patient outcomes and reduces the need for HCPs to invest time and money managing device-related issues. With BiCore B-Li M Rugged, HCPs can focus on helping patients attain greater freedom and peace of mind through consistently improved hearing experiences, no matter what the day brings.”
According to the company, the other newly released hearing aid products—BiCore BTE M, BiCore BTE P and BiCore BTE HP—are battery-operated hearing aids that feature direct audio streaming with iOS and Android devices (Performance Levels 30 and 20), IP68 protection against dust, sand, dirt, submersion in over a meter of water, and an integrated telecoil.
All four hearing aids are reportedly built on Rexton’s BiCore platform, an advanced binaural platform that company leaders say optimizes synchronization between left and right hearing aids to provide clarity and natural sound experiences. The BiCore platform also includes Rexton’s patented Speech Preservation Technology that removes unwanted noise and emphasizes speech for clearer conversations in all environments.
“The BiCore platform is ideal for patients who consistently experience drastic changes in noise levels, such as on construction sites, first responder situations and busy school environments,” O’Neil said. “The platform and all the models built on it are specifically engineered to adapt quickly to significant soundscape changes, delivering a solution that patients can count on to help them live and work as effectively, efficiently, and dependably as possible.”
