Natural directionality: Better hearing of speech along with environmental sounds
Noise-induced Hearing Loss – Hearing loss caused by exposure to very loud sounds, either very loud impulse sound(s) or repeated exposure to sounds over 90-decibel level over an extended period of time that damage the sensitive structures of the inner ear. Learn more about noise-induced hearing loss.
Narrow band filter – A filter which allows a specific restricted frequency range to pass through while attenuating adjacent frequencies on each side of the filter.
Noise management – A digital process which automatically alters the response of the hearing aid in a noisy situation in order to unsure the listener’s comfort.
Non-programmable multi-channel – Technology which electronically separates the incoming sound into bands and adjusts the sound intensity in each band independently. The benefit is a hearing aid that more finely tailors the frequency response and compression characteristics to each user’s unique hearing needs. These hearing aids are adjusted manually by a potentiometer.
