Spring Open Day

On Thursday 26th April we'll be holding our Spring Open Day at our Scarborough branch to demonstrate the latest hearing technology being offered by Signia (formally Siemens). They recently launched a new range of receiver in canal (RIC) and behind the ear (BTE) hearing aids, the Nx. The unique feature of the Nx is the Own Voice Processing (OVP) technology. The hearing aids are able to detect the wearer’s individual voice and process it differently to other voices and sounds. OVP is a world’s first and helps to improve spontaneous acceptance of own voice in 80% of dissatisfied hearing aid wearers.
Signia Nx range


If you’ve ever tried hearing aids but been put off wearing them because of the sound of your own voice, then the Nx is definitely for you! Nx also offers unrivalled spatial awareness, clear sound without distortion and advanced feedback cancellation. The hearing aids connect directly with smartphones, tablets and Signia’s range of wireless accessories for TV etc. Nx works with Signia’s TouchControl and MyHearing apps to help give a complete hearing experience.


 
Pure Nx Charge&Go
At the open day we will be offering free demonstrations of Nx so you can hear the difference for yourself. Visiting expert Gareth Heal will be on hand to show you all the features Nx can offer and answer any questions you might have. We will have special offers & discounts only available on the day, as well as free tea, coffee and biscuits. To book your appointment at the open day just ring us on 01723 369505 or email info@charlwoodhearing.co.uk.

Oticon Opn Open Day 6/4/17




On Thursday 6th April we will be holding an open day in our Scarborough branch to showcase the latest hearing aid technology on offer from Oticon. Opn represents an exciting change in direction for hearing aid technology when dealing with social situations where there is background noise. You can read more about the Opn below. If you are interested in finding out more about it, you can book an appointment with us on 6th April and receive a free hearing test, demonstrations of the Oticon Opn hearing aids, and take advantage of special offers available on the day. These include: 
  • Free 30 day Opn trials
  • 20% off the cost of Opn1 hearing aids
  • 10% off the cost of Opn2 and Opn3 hearing aids
  • Free 5 year warranties
  • Free 1 year supply of batteries
  • Chance to win a TV adaptor worth £195

We will also have Oticon expert Jennifer Adams on hand to demonstrate the Opn technology and answer any questions you might have. We will also have free refreshments. To book just call us on 0800 633 5939. 



Oticon Opn™ is powered by the new Velox™ platform. The tiny but powerful chip provides the ultra-fast and precise sound analysis and processing needed to support the brain’s ability to make sense of sound. Market-leading frequency resolution with 64 channels ensures that sounds are processed clearly and accurately to help you differentiate speech from noise. Velox scans the environment more than 100 times per second, handling more than 1,200 million operations per second. That’s fast enough to follow rapidly changing conversations with multiple speakers in noisy environments so you can locate, follow and switch focus to the sounds you want to hear.

With TwinLink™, for the first time, two dedicated communication systems operate in one hearing aid. One system lets your hearing aids talk to each other for accurate spatial awareness so you can identify where sounds are coming from. A second system communicates wirelessly with external devices such as iPhone®, smartphones, TV, computers and more.
The benefits of both systems are all yours - better hearing and hassle-free connectivity with low battery consumption.


OpenSound Navigator™ expertly manages multiple speech and noise sources so you can focus on a conversation while staying attentive to people and things around you and switch focus to what you want to hear. Traditional hearing technology enhances one speaker in the front and closes down all other sounds. OpenSound Navigator scans your environment 100 times per second to analyse and balance every sound individually, making them accessible but not disturbing so you enjoy a fuller, more natural soundscape.


Speech Guard™ LX preserves clear, transparent sound quality and speech details to improve your ability to understanding speech in noise. Follow conversations – from soft to loud – with less effort, even when multiple speakers are competing for your attention.

Call 0800 633 5939 for more information or to book a place on our Opn open day.
