The 3Bx Insio ITC is a mid-size custom device containing Siemens’ entry level technology. Depending on the size, the device will feature directional microphone capability and a telecoil to improve conversation in background noise and listening on the phone. The basic functionality of the automatic program and the noise reduction technology mean that the device is best suited to less challenging listening environments however, additional programs can be added and accessible via the on-board controls or the Touch Control App. The Siemens 3Bx Insio ITC is a good choice for those who do not require technology to assist their hearing in background noise
- AUTOMATIC PROGRAM (UNIVERSAL) Categorises the listening environment into one of six settings (Speech in Quiet, Speech in Noise, Noise, Music, Car, and Quiet). The aids then adjust the features and amplification settings to provide the best configuration for that listening situation. The 3Bx does not allow for the audiologist to adjust any of these settings independently of the others.
- DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONES (ADAPTIVE HIGH RESOLUTION DIRECTIONAL MICS) Automatically switches to a directional microphone strategy in background noise. Narrow directionality automatically focuses on the speaker immediately in front of the wearer to help wearers understand speech in noisy places like restaurants.
- NOISE REDUCTION (SPEECH AND NOISE MANAGEMENT) Emphasises speech and reduces background noise. The 3Bx offers three levels of personalisation.
- IMPULSE NOISE REDUCTION (SOUNDSMOOTHING) Improves listening comfort by suppressing sudden loud sounds.
- WIND REDUCTION (EWINDSCREEN) Reduces wind noise to improve listening comfort
- PHONE PROGRAM (AUTOPHONE) Phone program automatically activates when the hearing aid detects a phone.
- FREQUENCY COMPRESSION 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.
- TINNITUS RELIEF (TINNITUS NOISER) Emits a soft noise that is designed to distract attention away from an individual’s tinnitus.
