For more than forty years I’ve told patients that no one has ever seen me for a new hearing aid because it is cool. Now this may be changing.
Celebrate – Its Technology
Even small talk is a big thing
Speech has always been a priority at Sonic, and Celebrate makes no exception.
Speech Variable Processing preserves the soft nuances in spoken words for better understanding.
Speech Priority Noise Reduction works to separate speech from surrounding noise while the new Speech Priority
Volume Control “turns up” the volume of the speech frequencies patients want to hear.
And new Reverb Reduction helps control the lingering “ring” that sounds can take on in large spaces like assembly halls or places of worship.
Make the most of every environment
Celebrate includes features for every other type of venue, too. Environment Classification automatically analyzes incoming sounds binaurally and adjusts the features and amplification to address that situation.
Going away? The Airplane Environment specifically addresses the challenges of a noisy airplane cabin so patients can enjoy the company of a companion (or communicate with a flight attendant).You can even configure a Custom Environment with just the right features and amplification for a patient’s unique listening situation.
No complaints about the noise
The features in Celebrate practically tell distractions to “keep it down” so patients can concentrate on what they want to hear. Sophisticated directional systems hone in on the source of a sound and help reduce unwanted noise while Impulse Noise Reduction suppresses unanticipated sounds like clinking silverware or jangling keys.
Soft Noise Reduction minimizes background distractions like a whirring fan or humming refrigerator, and Wind Noise Reduction makes time outdoors more enjoyable.
Since few noises are more distracting than feedback, patients will appreciate the Adaptive Feedback Canceller which removes offending signals and attacks feedback before it starts.
A high-note feature
Here’s some extra attention for listeners with limited high-frequency cochlear function. Frequency Transfer compresses high-frequency input and “shifts” it to frequencies with better hearing to improve overall audibility of speech cues.
Celebrate Everyday Connectivity
Add accessories to the wireless compatible Celebrate hearing instruments and enjoy the connectivity conveniences that make today’s modern living fund and hassle free.
Wireless Connectivity with SoundGate
A hearing instrument isn’t the only important instrument in your life. Mobile phones, MP3 players, PCs, and television are likely part of your everyday routine. SoundGate helps you hear them all—right through your hearing aids.
Your hearing instruments already help you hear sounds coming from different sources. But imagine if your favorite music wasn’t playing from 10 feet away — it’s streaming directly into your hearing aids. That’s the concept behind the SoundGate device. It’s like having personal speakers for your ears.
The wireless hub for your hearing instruments®
The heart of our wireless system, SoundGate is the digital “go-between” connecting external devices with your hearing instruments. It’s a small, portable accessory that turns your hearing aids into personal “speakers” for the TV, your phone, or in assistive listening environments.
Built for Bluetooth®
For example, SoundGate allows you to connect with any device that’s already Bluetooth® enabled – like your mobile phone or a digital audio player. Just click a button on SoundGate to transmit the audio through your hearing aids. You keep the SoundGate device in your pocket or wear it around your neck so its microphone can pick up your voice for hands-free phone calls.
The convenience of remote control
It’s possible to change programs and volume levels with a discrete click of a button instead of reaching for the controls on your hearing aids themselves.
Connect to Other External Devices
SoundGate works as an interface between Bluetooth®-enabled devices like mobile phones or many digital music players. But you can connect to other audio sources that aren’t Bluetooth®-compatible using SoundGate and optional accessories. Learn about the TV Adapter and Phone Adapter that work in conjunction with SoundGate.
