Chicago, Ill— Panasonic Healthcare Group announced at the AAA show in Boston that the Panasonic JZ Power WH-105JZ and all R1-W Series, WH-R17C, WH-R15C, and WH-R13C, digital hearing instruments have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal. As a result, Panasonic’s entire lineup of hearing instruments are now recognized by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute with a Good Housekeeping Seal.

“After being reviewed by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute’s Health, Beauty & Environmental Sciences Department, we’re thrilled to welcome the newest Panasonic hearing aid products to our Good Housekeeping Seal family,” said Patricia Haegele, senior vice president/publisher of Good Housekeeping Magazine.

The JZ Power WH-105JZ is designed for mild to severe hearing loss and utilizes proprietary technology to expand hearing range as compared with previous generation models. The palm-sized unit features an LCD screen, a stereo binaural headset that is made to fit comfortably into the patient’s ear canal and stay in place for long hours of wear, and a simple, user-friendly design.

The open fit Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) R1-W Series are also designed for people with mild to severe hearing loss andare available in three models: WH-R17C, WH-R15C, and WH-R13C. Offering a compact size and curved shape, the R1-W Series is designed to fit comfortably and discreetly behind a user’s ear. The Hearing Hub feature allows users to wirelessly connect the hearing instrument to Bluetooth®-compatible mobile phones, landlines, and Audio Transmitter, enabling sound to automatically transmit into the digital hearing device, as well as other features.

Delain D. Wright, director of sales, Panasonic Healthcare Group, commented in the press release, “As we expand our presence in the hearing market, the Good Housekeeping Seal recognition will help give both hearing care professionals and end users confidence in the decision to improve their lives through better hearing using Panasonic hearing products.”
