SmartFocus™ extends control for your clients
Adjusting towards Clarity focuses on sound originating
from in front of the listener. If the signal is identified
as speech, this setting automatically provides additional
band-specific enhancement.
• Attending a lecture • Watching television
• Conversation with a friend at a busy restaurant
Adjusting towards Comfort reduces the annoyance and
loudness of sounds around the listener. Those signals
identified as background noise are further diminished
in a band-specific manner to improve listening comfort,
while still maintaining awareness.
• Riding the train
• Walking along a busy street
• Waiting for the show to start in a crowded theater
SmartFocus is easily accessed,
either through a scroll wheel
on the Smart Control, or via a
discreet control located directly
on the hearing instrument.
Passport redefines intelligence
™
SmartFocus™ uses adjustable microphone strategy
SmartFocus offers an agile microphone strategy that works in tandem with speech enhancement, noise
reduction and overall gain, allowing clients to address their listening focus in any situation. Whether wanting
to hear sounds from all directions, or just those in front of them, clients can focus in on their area of interest
by adjusting their hearing instrument settings towards comfort or clarity. Doing so moves the microphone
response smoothly along a continuum, from omni to fixed directional to partially adaptive directional to
fully adaptive directional. The result is superior comprehension, comfort, and clearer communication.

Lifelong learning
Passport remembers your clients’ preferences for smartFocus and volume control settings in various
situations. By teaching itself these preferences, Passport will intelligently apply changes in the automatic
program when clients encounter similar listening environments.
Learning is further accelerated and personalized through the learnNow button on the Smart Control.
Clients can press learnNow to instantly capture their specific adjustments to the automatic program providing:
increased client satisfaction, fewer adjustments and shorter follow-up sessions.
TM
Smart Control
Smart Control permits clients
to discreetly and conveniently
adjust various functions of their
hearing instruments. Hand-held
control of smartFocus, volume
and program selection lets
your clients choose smaller
form factors without sacrificing
functionality. Left and right
hearing instruments can
be adjusted individually
or simultaneously.

DuoLink: Convenient
and discreet control
Now you can offer your clients hearing
instruments intelligent enough to
communicate with one another, no extra
accessories required. When clients make
program or volume adjustments on one
hearing instrument, Passport binaurally
synchronizes those changes. This feature
maximizes simplicity and discretion, while
ensuring the listening experience remains
balanced across both ears. DuoLink also
eliminates the need for control redundancy,
allowing for smaller and more cosmetically
appealing hearing instruments.
Answering the call
for simpler phone use
DuoLink can be set up to work with easy-t,
automatically triggering program changes
in both hearing instruments. Combining
easy-t and duoLink is a convenient way
to meet the unique phone needs of each
client, such as:
• Increasing speech volume in the phone ear
• Muting the non-phone ear entirely

uDirect™ connects clients
to improved communication
uDirect is a neck-worn device that acts as a reliable interface between
Passport and Bluetooth® enabled devices, wired audio input signals,
or FM transmitted signals. One of two wireless streaming programs,
uPhone or uAudio, is automatically activated when uDirect receives
the appropriate signal, resulting in a range of end user benefits:
• Clearer reception – delivering desired signals directly to the
hearing instruments reduces the distraction of other sounds
• Clearer transmission – when using a Bluetooth enabled cell phone,
the wearer’s voice is clearly transmitted thanks to a built-in
directional microphone
• Binaural listening – delivering signals directly to both ears
eliminates environmental distractions and improves comprehension
• Hands-free operation – cell phones and other wireless-enabled
devices can be enjoyed without manual intervention
• True, rich stereo sound quality – audio from external devices
such as MP3 players are streamed in stereo
The Bluetooth trademarks are owned by Bluetooth SIG, Inc.
Wireless programming
iCube is a straightforward programming device for wireless-enabled
Passport hearing instruments. The client wears the iCube around their
neck allowing you to perform wireless programming that is efficient,
flexible, and particularly useful for clients who are more challenging
to fit using traditional cables.
uAudio: FM transmitted signal
Purpose-driven features
deliver confidence
A suite of advanced algorithms
AutoPro4 – Integrates four distinct listening
destinations into one seamless automatic
program: Quiet, Group/Party Noise, Traffic/Intense
Noise and Music. By automatically transitioning
between independently programmable settings
designed for each of these environments, your
clients experience amazing sound quality, optimal
audibility, and noticeable listening comfort.
TM
Now autoPro4 provides even more flexibility
to address listening preferences, given the
independent adjustability of smartFocus
in each listening destination.
Speech Enhancement LD – Provides additional
gain in those bands where speech is dominant
over noise in order to enhance ease of listening
and clarity of speech signals. Level dependent
technology provides further enhanced audibility
for softer speech sounds, while maintaining
comfort for louder speech inputs.
Noise Reduction – Enhances listening comfort
by identifying bands where noise is dominant
over speech and reducing gain in those bands.
Feedback Management System – Offers the
most advanced feedback management system,
providing more usable gain for your clients.
AntiShock – Transient signals, such as a door
slamming or dishes clattering in a sink, can cause
significant discomfort to hearing instrument
wearers. AntiShock instantly detects and controls
such sounds, while maintaining natural sound
quality and recognizability.
Enhancements in Passport provide you with
the ability to adjust the strength settings
for different environments.
• Less chance of embarrassing whistling
• Less need for fit-related remakes
• Diminished need for programming adjustments
Multiple Microphone Options – Several microphone
options are offered. An adjustable microphone
strategy is employed when smartFocus is engaged.
Alternatively you can select omnidirectional,
fixed directional, or multiband adaptive directional
to match client needs.

Passport’s intelliVent technology
takes the guess work out of vent
selection by automatically
specifying design characteristics
that consider your client’s unique
ear canal dimensions and hearing
loss. This process provides
successful fittings by considering
multiple factors when designing
each client’s vent dimensions: the
likelihood of feedback, the benefit
of direct sound, gain requirements,
and the potential for occlusion.
Digital shell making eliminates
variations and ensures no
wasted space
• Automatic design specification
simplifies the vent selection
process with all your clients
• New vent configurations
provide flexibility to address
the venting and amplification
needs of your clients
• U:fit fitting software works
with intelliVent to automatically
optimize gain/frequency
response for the acoustics
of the vent.
