Either way the sound is positioned to send directly into your ear canal for the highest and fidelity and response.One of the best features of the device is the ability to limit or eliminate feedback.

Unitron incorporates advanced features to identify and suppress common feedback before it even happens. The results are truly amazing.The unit is very flexible in its ability to run one automatic program and two manual programs.

The instruction manual and users guide spells this out very clearly.Regular maintenance, such as changing the battery is also very quick and easy. You can also find detailed instructions in the user guide. It has detailed pictures as well as step by step instructions to help you along. This product also quickly adjusts to changes in sound volume. So if a sudden noise is experienced, the volume on your Moda II changes very quickly. Its a convenient feature which is designed to avoid excessive sound when you least expect or want it.When windy conditions prevail, the Moda II has the ability to handle that situation. When it senses windy conditions it adjusts for the wind noise so you can still hear what you need to hear. The Unitron website includes detailed description of the features and benefits from this product.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is there a good website to get ratings for the different brands of very expensive hearing aids?
    At between 1300 and 4500 dollars for hearing aids I can find no place where the various brands are compared. Consumer reports has not done a comparison
    for mlgable
    I am aware of what you are saying about different types of hearing loss. But there are many different brands with a great variety of pricing. As with any product I am sure that some brands are a much better value than others. This is not for me but an elderly parent.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes there are different brands. However each brand usually also has a 00 model, 00 model, 00 model etc. With hearing aids there really isn’t much difference among brands. Each audiologist is going to have their “favorite” manufacturer based on how much experience they have with their products. It is always best to go with something the audiologist is familiar with because they have more knowledge of what works and what doesn’t work with those products. My advice is to see an audiologist not a hearing instrument specialist. Audiologists have at least a master’s if not a doctorate degree. Audiologists use hearing aids from major manufacturers. My favorites are Widex, Phonak, Resound, and Starkey. Other major manufacturers are Oticon, Siemens, Unitron, and Rexton. Stay away from places that use their own brands and not a major manufacturer listed above.

  3. QUESTION:
    Is there a hearing aid with radio or a mp3 player?
    BY that i mean that you can listen to radio with your hearing aid, or save music on it and listen to it later.

    • ANSWER:
      Currently there are no hearing aids that have a radio or mp3 built into them; however many of the most advanced digital hearing aids are now Bluetooth compatible. The hearing aids have the ability to stream any Bluetooh compatible device directly to the hearing aids wirelessly. What does this mean? It means your cell phone, mp3 player, etc (if Bluetooth compatible) will stream directly to your hearing aids and will be amplified exactly the way you need it based on your hearing loss and your hearing aid settings – how cool!

      Digital hearing aids (http://www.healthyhearing.com/questions/40715-digital-hearing-aids) have really improved functionality and connectivity for hearing aid wearers.

      Healthy Hearing, an online consumer resource for hearing aids, has many articles on Bluetooth compatible hearing aids by Oticon, Starkey, Sonic, Unitron, etc. Links to a few are provided for your reading:

  4. QUESTION:
    Which is a better company for digital hearing aids?
    I have been using single channel CIC Siemens since the past 6 years (no complains), now I need a better machine. Options are among 8/12/16 channels CIC or RIC among Siemens and Unitron. Which will be a better company? Is Unitron a trustworthy brand? It is slightly cheaper than Siemens.

    • ANSWER:
      Why not speak to different audiologists and explore all options (manufacturers). Personally I’ve only got experience of Oticon and Siemens, and both were full size BTEs.

      Cheapest is always the best. What you want is value for money, and that value can only be measured by what hearing aids get you the best hearing from the hearing you have left.

  5. QUESTION:
    Is there a hearing aid available in the form of headphones?
    I mean with a remote microphone some where,I am vain and don’t like the look of lumps of plastic sticking out of my ears and with headphones I’ll look cool like I’m listening to music lol.

    • ANSWER:
      You should look into the open-fit hearing aids that are currently on the market. They are tiny and transmit sound into the ear canal with a thin plastic tube that you can barely see. Personally I think they are more “cool” looking that a pair of earbuds hanging from your ears. People will think you are listening to music and not talk to you.

      Hearing loss and hearing aids are nothing to be ashamed of or be vain over. Not treating your hearing loss and not being able to hear are actually something to be ashamed of.
