Prepared for any hearing situation.
How features can enhance the functionality of your hearing system.
Ready for
anything.
Hearing instruments don’t just come in all shapes and sizes – they are also
equipped differently depending on individual requirements. There are
basic features that every good hearing instrument should offer. But there
are also optional features that improve hearing in individual situations and
meet your specific needs and desires, making life easier.
Siemens hearing instruments are equipped with many helpful features
that provide better hearing, improved sound comfort and cater to your
individual preferences. These features are illustrated with everyday
examples in the following pages.

The three main aspects of excellent
hearing solutions.

Start the
day right.
For many of us, the day begins with
a conversation over breakfast; maybe
we make a quick phone call before
heading out for the day. Even in these
simple listening situations, a hearing
instrument can ensure that we catch
every little nuance.
Directional microphones
A directional microphone focuses on sounds that
originate in front of you, reducing noises from other
directions, helping you to focus on your conversation
partner.
Directional microphones
Feedback management
Telecoil
Feedback management
Feedback management describes the process of suppressing
feedback whistling within milliseconds. The latest feedback
cancellation system is now more effective than ever. So you
can forget about that irritating whistling sound once and
for all.
Telecoil
The Telecoil, also called T-coil, automatically detects the
magnetic signals from devices like landline phones and
inductive transmission systems, e.g. in theaters and
cinemas, and transmits them directly to your hearing
instrument.

Carpe diem.
Each day is full of interesting conversations in the most diverse environments.
Sometimes with many different dialog partners, like in a meeting. Other
times, you cannot turn to face the person you’re talking to, such as when you
are driving. The right features ensure that you never miss a thing.
Multi-channel adaptive microphone
The multi-channel adaptive microphone can follow and fade out multiple
moving sources of background noise – making sure you’re well-equipped
for meetings or gatherings.
Features

SpeechFocus
Automatic adaptive
microphone
Remote control option
Discreetly switch settings or programs and adjust the volume by using a remote
control. The ePen™ won the renowned “iF“ and “reddot“ design awards.
SpeechFocus
With SpeechFocus, you can hear speech well in the presence of background
noise, even when it comes from behind you or from the side. This is ideal
when you’re driving or cannot look at the person you are speaking to.
Automatic adaptive microphone
In noisy situations, the microphone switches to focus on speech in front
of you, reducing the intensity of noise around you. Adaptive microphones
can follow and reduce sources of noise as they move – for example, if a
truck drives by the window during a conversation or conference – making
it much easier to listen in noise.

Making the most of midday.
The sounds we experience every day enliven and enrich our lives, but
sometimes all these impressions can be overwhelming. The clatter of dishes
at a restaurant, the rustle of paper while at the doctor’s office, the person
crinkling a bag of chips when we watch a matinee: wouldn’t it be ideal if we
could focus on only the sounds we want to hear? The right features can act
as a filter – so you can concentrate on what’s really important.
Speech and noise management
Speech and noise management supports the directional microphone
system and reduces the effort of speech understanding in noisy
situations. Furthermore, it also makes listening in noisy situations
more comfortable by dampening the general noise level.
Features
Speech and
noise management
SoundSmoothing
Directional speech
enhancement
Frequency compression
SoundSmoothing
SoundSmoothing™ reduces sudden jarring noises like the sounds
of clinking dishes, crinkling newspapers or heels on hard flooring.
Directional speech enhancement
Directional speech enhancement takes speech and noise management one
step further and offers additional sound attenuation, filtering out ambient
noise even more effectively.
Frequency compression
If your hearing loss is of a certain configuration, frequency compression
compresses and shifts high-pitched sounds that you would otherwise be
unable to hear to a lower range where residual hearing is better. This means
you can still take part in the conversation, even in noisy locations like
busy cafés.

Out and about.
Window shopping in town can be especially challenging when you’re constantly exposed to changing
situations and sounds coming from every direction. It’s good to know that you can rely on your hearing
instrument. And a short conversation on your cell phone or listening to your favorite song is easy to do –
even in the hustle and bustle.
Learning options
With this feature, a hearing instrument can “learn” how you like to
hear in different situations within just a few short weeks.
The result is an intuitive hearing instrument that automatically
adjusts itself to suit your listening preferences, eliminating the
need for you to manually change the volume after the learning
period. Siemens offers learning with various levels of sophistication
depending on the hearing instrument you choose.
Bluetooth compatibility
Bluetooth connections make an impromptu cell phone call simple
and easy to hear. Your hearing instrument can be wirelessly
connected to your cell phone or other external audio and
entertainment devices, receiving true stereo signals directly into
both hearing instruments (accessories: Tek™/miniTek™).
TruEar
The TruEar™ feature simulates the function of the outer ear,
helping you to localize sound sources from the front and back.
This can improve your understanding in bustling environments
and it refines your orientation, keeping you safe as you navigate
busy streets with lots of traffic.

e2e wireless 2.0
e2e wireless™ 2.0 synchronizes left and right hearing
instruments, enabling better directional hearing. This is
ideal for better orientation, for example, when you cross
the street while jogging.
Water-/Dustproof (IP68 certified*)
If you’re looking for a hearing instrument that can take
a beating, Aquaris™ is the waterproof, sweat- and
dust-resistant solution. It is the first truly waterproof
hearing instrument from Siemens with a fully protected
housing and is waterproof to a depth of one meter.
eWindScreen
eWindScreen™ helps you to hear better when you’re
outdoors by detecting and selectively reducing wind
noise – increasing comfort and making listening
comprehension a breeze.

Happy ending.
The right options make spending a quiet evening at home the ideal end
to a busy day – maybe while listening to music – because with the right
feature you can listen to your favorite songs to the fullest. And lying back
with a good book or magazine becomes a true luxury with a hearing
instrument that can reduce the annoying ringing of tinnitus.
Tinnitus noiser
If you are suffering from tinnitus, the optional tinnitus noiser function
can help you relax and read with full concentration by reducing the
effects of tinnitus.

SoundBrilliance™ provides crystal clear sound at high frequencies
so that you can enjoy every note of your favorite song.
Rechargeability
Siemens Pure™ and Motion™ hearing instruments are rechargeable, so
there is no need to constantly change batteries. The eCharger accessory
is easy to use and sustainable.
Extended bandwidth
When your hearing loss is mild or moderate, the extra bandwidth
offered by the latest BestSound™ Technology allows you to hear
ultra-high frequencies better. So when your favorite opera diva
gives her best, you will be able to appreciate the performance.
