Did you know that the way your brain processes sound is as unique as your personality or your fingerprint? Hearing is comprised not just of receiving sounds, but how we interpret them within our brains. What we actually hear is shaped by our life experiences, our lifestyle, and our personal physical and psychological make-up.
The individuality of each person’s hearing profile is important to those coping with hearing loss. It’s one of the reasons that many hearing aids are so unsatisfying. A “one-sound-fits-all” design actually fits no one.
Basic hearing instruments have a few adjustments that can tailor amplification based on an audiogram. But they can only go so far. Speech may sound “tinny” or mechanical at times with these devices and you may have trouble distinguishing speech from background noise or locating the source of sound in a room.
To overcome these limitations, Oticon has just introduced its new Alta hearing instrument, which features intriguing breakthrough technology. Imagine Alta as a micro-brain that works in harmony with your own brain to differentiate sounds, so you can hear more — anywhere, anytime.
Alta’s micro-brain is more powerful and more adjustable than anything Oticon has ever engineered. Its advanced wireless signal processing system supports features that guard speech, help you focus your hearing, orient you in a room, and help your brain to support your hearing. With Alta, your personal hearing preferences are actually used by the sound-processing chip that’s at the heart of every Alta hearing solution. Since Alta is customized exclusively for your specific needs, preferences and hearing abilities, you’ll be able to differentiate sounds and hear more.
Alta is customized to your hearing preferences, but it is also customized to match your personal style. Choose from many options that suit your look, along with your unique hearing abilities. Like other Oticon hearing devices, Alta is available in colors that match your skin and hair tones, or bold hues that can make a fashion statement. Alta even gets personal with a range of other technologies you use in your daily life. ConnectLine™ lets your Alta devices function as a wireless headset for a wide range of Bluetooth™ enabled devices, such as your TV, telephone, computer, MP3 player and cell phone. Oticon’s convenient Streamer Pro is a simple, portable device that puts ConnectLine’s intuitive controls at your fingertips. So you can fully enjoy a world of entertainment, information and ideas with Alta.
