Processing Technology and Features
Sonic’s 4S philosophy: “Sound that is natural, Speech understanding in noise, Simplicity in everything we do, and Style that stands out” are features of hearing aids produced by Sonic.
Sonic launched their brand with digital signal processing (DSP) technology in place. Building upon this established technology, Sonic developed the Natura computer chip, which helped hearing aid wearers to distinguish between conversations and background noise by using nine-channel digital processing.
A major advantage of Sonic hearing aids is in the fitting process by allowing the hearing care provider to program in half-octave increments, making it possible for Sonic hearing aid wearers to enjoy a higher level of sound clarity that meets their user-specific hearing loss challenges.
Additional Key Features:
- Choice of all hearing aid styles, including Mini BTE
- Learning Capability
- Preset Sound Profiles
