The ITC is a discrete custom device available in the Virto V50 series. It builds on the features of the V30 series by offering an improved automatic program (adjusting between three sound destinations), better noise reduction and directionality. It also includes DuoPhone (technology that streams phone calls to the non-phone ear) to improve telephone conversation ability. The smaller MC model contains the same features as the ITC, but in a smaller package, so this tends to be a more popular choice for hearing aid wearers seeking a device at this level. The Virto V50-312 ITC should perform well for those who have mild-to-moderate difficulties hearing in the presence of background noise.
The Virto V50 312 ITC is based on the latest 24 Bit chipset, which results in exceptional Sound Quality, minimal distortion in loud environments and best in class music fidelity.
AUTOMATIC PROGRAM (AUTOSENSE OS): Automatically identifies the listening environment and blends feature elements from two (calm situation, and speech in noise) programs to select the best hearing aid settings for that situation.
DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONES (ULTRAZOOM STANDARD) Focuses the hearing aid microphones in front of you while reducing noise from the sides and behind.
BINAURAL PHONE PROGRAM (DUO PHONE) Streams a phone conversation to the non-phone ear to help improve understanding on the phone.
FREQUENCY COMPRESSION (SOUND RECOVER): Compresses sounds from areas where hearing is most damaged, to an area with better hearing. Designed to improve audibility for those with poor high-frequency hearing.
BINAURAL COORDINATION (QUICKSYNC): Co-ordinates the hearing aids so that adjustments made to one device are automatically made on the other device.
TINNITUS RELIEF (TINNITUS BALANCE): Emits a soft noise that is designed to distract attention away from an individual’s tinnitus.
