New hearing technology credited for better quality of life

micon portfolio welcomed by audiology and patient community alike

Siemens Hearing Instruments has unveiled its latest innovations to the UK.

The micon portfolio, which has been welcomed by the audiology and patient community alike, includes the Insio, Ace, Pure, Siemens Life, Aquaris, Nitro and Motion instruments. All of the products have been designed with enhanced speech clarity, natural sound and wearer comfort in mind.

The portfolio provides exceptional feedback management with dual processing, which in turn means no more whistling. Improved directionality allows for clear conversations in even the most challenging listening situations. The platform works at 250 million instructions per second, 12Khz bandwidth and has up to 48 frequency channels. Situation detection automatically adapts to various listening environments and over time the technology intelligently adapts to the user’s personal hearing preferences. micon is making an immediate impact on end users and providing them with excellent sound quality and speech understanding for a better quality of life.

Jeffery F, a wearer of a Siemens Insio micon CIC instrument, said: “I have recently changed to digital hearing technology and use the latest top-of-the-range Siemens CIC Insio 7mi complete with the hands-free device controller and TV audio booster. I have found them to be so comfortable that they have become a natural part of my life without me noticing. I can hear things I thought I had lost forever, for example, birds in trees that seem miles away and the tick of clocks. I can honestly say they have made an enormous difference to my life - conversations are a joy after missing so many in the past. There are similar products on the market, but so far Siemens is a winner for me. I can strongly recommend them to anyone wanting a virtually-invisible, comfortable hearing device.”

Karen Finch, managing director at The Hearing Care Centre has recently started offering the micon portfolio to customers. She said: “The team and I have been fitting the micon family of products and we have been very pleased by the patient’s descriptive summaries of their experiences. The doubled frequency channels and signal processing result in enhanced clarity for the wearer, a more-natural sound and a faster reaction time to the surrounding environment. The technology is advanced and the benefits for patients have been excellent.”
