Unitron is a Canadian hearing aid manufacturer headquartered in the Waterloo region, near Toronto. It's one of only a few major hearing aid manufacturers based outside of Europe. While not quite as large as the "big six" juggernauts that dominate hearing aid sales worldwide, Unitron has made a name for itself by focusing on customer needs and ease of use. Established in 1964, the company now sells hearing instruments and accessories in more than 70 countries. By the year 2000, Unitron had grown to become the seventh largest hearing aid manufacturer in the world, when it was acquired by Sonova, a global leader in hearing technology and maker of Phonak hearing aids. What this means today is that Unitron benefits from technological advancements shared with its parent company, while continuing to pursue unique innovation of its own and a customer-focused culture.
The true hallmark of Unitron hearing aids is value for money. Unitron seems to understand that giving hearing aid wearers what matters the most makes purchasing and wearing hearing aids a more satisfying experience. It’s not that Unitron hearing aids don’t include as many features as other brands, because they do. Unitron just prioritizes features a little differently than some others. For instance, you can pay a lot for the highest level of noise reduction, but no technology helps more to make speech easier to understand in background noise than a remote microphone. Difficulty hearing in background noise is the number one complaint of listeners with hearing loss, yet Unitron is the only manufacturer to include wireless remote microphones, Bluetooth streamers, and other accessories at no extra charge with the purchase of hearing aids.
Something else that matters to many hearing aid wearers is great design - not just for the sake of good looks, but for comfort and ease of use. Unitron's Tempus Moxi Now is the world's smallest wireless RIC-style hearing aid, and the design of the entire line of Moxi hearing aids is truly second to none. They're tiny, cute, and pleasantly contoured, with a smooth finish and no extraneous switches or buttons sticking out. The design is so good that they won the iF product design award in 2014 and the prestigious Red Dot Award for product design four years in a row, from 2014 to 2017. These awards reflect not only the appealing aesthetics of the hearing aids, but also their functionality, durability, and comfortable ergonomics.
Hearing aids built on the Tempus platform offer Unitron's latest technology. As with other hearing aid brands, features vary based on the performance level you select. In Tempus hearing aids, such as the Tempus Moxi Fit, Unitron offers five performance levels: T500, T600, T700, T800, and TPro, where T500 is the least advanced option and TPro is the most advanced. The full feature set with a wide range of automatic listening programs really begins at the T700 level. The T500 level is a basic option with mostly manual control, and is best suited for quiet listening conditions. It does have adaptive directionality, however, and is still a good budget option.
Tempus Moxi Fit
The Tempus Moxi Fit is an award-winning RIC-style hearing aid with a size-312 battery, push button control, and a telecoil. It is also available with a rechargeable battery as the Moxi Fit R. Compared to its predecessor, Tempus Moxi Fit is 50% more accurate and 36?ster at locating speech. You will get the most from this update at the T700 level and above, which include a wider range of automatic features. Examples include: Spatial Awareness processing to make it easier to recognize the location of sounds around you, up to seven classes of listening environments, and SpeechPro speech enhancements for a more natural sound quality. Other features found across the performance levels include wind noise reduction, adaptive direction microphones, and feedback cancellation.
Tempus Moxi Fit are compatible with Unitron's wireless accessories, for streaming audio from your TV, phone, and other sources. Better yet, they are included at no additional charge! Choose from two remote controls, the uStream or uDirect 3 Bluetooth audio streamers, uMic wireless microphone, and uTV 3 TV streamer. For basic hearing aid adjustments, you can also use the uControl app for Apple iOSTM and Android mobile devices.
