As DSP technology continues to progress, hearing aid manufacturers are able to improve processing speed and algorithm performance. Recently, Unitron’s Smartfocus™ algorithm, which has been clinically proven in several independent studies to outperform similar algorithms in noise, has been enhanced with the advent of several new features unique to the Quantum and Moxi families of Unitron products. For example, Unitron’s automatic switching program has been updated. No longer using a “winner take all” approach, the Quantum and Moxi algorithms can actually morph between listening destinations and exist in a state that is partially between one listening environment and another. Clinical trials have shown a strong user preference for this updated automatic switching algorithm. Other technological advances to the Quantum and Moxi product lines include Pinna Effect, which contributes to improved front-to-back localization, and Natural Sound Balance, a feature that enhances the performance of open canal fittings.
