miSound
This technology is so transparent that the wearer can forget that they are hearing through a
hearing instrument. The micon fit fitting formula, enhanced feedback cancellation, and bandwidth
extension offer the most natural comfortable sound experience.
Introducing the new Nitro micon™ family: A line of super power BTE
and ITE hearing instruments that offers reliable amplification for severe
to profound hearing loss. Equipped with micon™, the new platform
behind BestSound™ Technology, the Nitro micon offers a broad
range of hearing solutions that provide more amplification for
greater speech understanding to those who need itt most.
In addition, nearly all models offer the unique combination
bination
of up to 82dB gain with wireless connectivity. By
combining super power with the latest, most
sophisticated technology, Nitro micon provides the
options, functions and power that wearers who are
e
dependent on their hearing instruments need
to stay connected to their world.

miFocus
This 48-channel TwinMic System™ makes hearing effortless again. Directional microphones, improved
localized noise suppression, higher frequency resolution, and optional frequency compression for
appropriate hearing losses offer more speech intelligibility, even in the most difficult environments.
miGuide
This powerful engine offers the wearer customized sound with automatic situation detection, an
intelligent algorithm that learns user sound preferences, and automatic gain adjustment, which
increases the gain over time to compensate for the effects of auditory deprivation. With CONNEXX® 7,
frequency shaping for the detected situations can be manually adjusted.

Optional T-coil
This feature may significantly improve speech intelligibility for people whose
hearing loss inhibits the interpretation of high frequency information. By shifting
these frequencies into their audible range, you can offer wearers a solution with
the individual sound they need.

e2e wireless® 2.0
This technology synchronizes two hearing
instruments into one holistic, binaural hearing
system, giving wearers improved spatial
perception, connectivity and ease of use.
Optivent
Nitro micon custom features Optivent:
A ventilation strategy that provides optimum
sound quality and speech understanding while
ensuring the smallest possible instrument size.
The customized shape of the vent, combined
with micon’s feedback canceller, improves
resistance to feedback and enables strong
amplification for severe hearing loss with less
occlusion effect.

Tinnitus therapy feature
The noise signal of Nitro micon’s tinnitus therapy feature can
be configured in up to 20 bands and can also be mixed with the
microphone signal. Nitro has four pre-programmed therapy signals:
white noise, pink noise, speech noise and high tone noise, providing
customized relief in any situation.

Feedback canceller
micon™ feedback cancellation offers better
feedback suppression than ever before – a
most useful feature for wearers who need the
amplification of a Nitro instrument.
Thanks to the parallel processing of two phase
cancellers and continuous critical gain
measurements in the background, wearers
experience feedback-free use and high
quality sound.
Tek®, miniTek® and miniTek Remote App
Tek and miniTek work seamlessly with Nitro micon, wirelessly connecting the
hearing instruments to many different devices. Sound from Bluetooth phones,
MP3 players, televisions and other audio sources is streamed directly to the hearing
instruments. Android4 smartphones can be used to conveniently operate the miniTek
via the miniTek Remote App, available in the Google Play4 Store.

Nitro micon features for severe hearing loss
micon fit
For BTE models, micon fit has been especially adapted to meet the
needs of super power customers. Together with micon optional
frequency compression, micon fit offers best speech understanding,
loudness discrimination and localization, so you can get the most
out of the wearer’s residual dynamic range without neglecting the
customer’s hearing habits. For custom models with 70dB, micon fit
provides an amplification and compression scheme that has been
optimized for the needs of patients with severe hearing loss.
