The impact of speech

When clients can hear and understand conversations around them, it can illuminate their world. That’s why our innovative hearing solutions are designed for people of all ages and all degrees of hearing loss to connect socially as well as thrive mentally and emotionally. 

With Phonak Lumity hearing devices, the new portfolio focuses on giving them improved speech understanding1 with its unique Phonak SmartSpeech Technology. They can enjoy conversations in challenging listening situations1. Precisely controlled by AutoSense OS™ 5.0, SmartSpeech technology is currently available in all Lumity RICs, including Audéo L-RT, L-RT and Audéo Life™ Lumity. 

Speech detection from all around

With SpeechSensor, clients are enabled to hear from back and the sides. This automatic feature detects the main speech source and adjusts its microphone modes to ensure the client has more access to t speech from side and back. 

Scientific literature has found that having more access to sound not only provides clarity but reduces listening effort.3,4,5

Improved focus in noise

Lumity hearing aid wearers benefit from focusing a narrow microphone beam to the person speaking to them from the front, thanks to StereoZoom 2.0.

When their Lumity hearing aids are paired with myPhonak , clients can use the app to take control of how much focus to the front they would like in challenging environments.

Reduced listing effort

Our proprietary fitting formula, Adaptive Phonak Digital (APD) 2.0 is designed to balance audibility, loudness and sound quality. It does this by applying a dedicated processing algorithm and pre-calculation for a comfortable, spontaneous first-fit acceptance. APD 2.0 leads to reduced listening effort in noise for those with mild to severe hearing loss.* 

Independant research has found that reducing listening effort may free up cognitive resources for purposes other than listening.2

AutoSense OS™ 5.0

Founded on artificial intelligence and machine learning, AutoSense OS 5.0 orchestrates features for a personalized experience in many sound environments. AutoSense OS 5.0 provides a variety of end-user communication needs and lifestyles.

Speech Enhancer

Hearing technology to enhance peaks of speech signal in quiet situations

An adaptive feature that is designed to enhance the peaks of speech signal in quiet situations. Lumity wearers will experience reduced listening effort in quiet1

Independant research has found that reducing listening effort may free up cognitive resources for purposes other than listening.2

 

Dynamic Noise Cancellation

Hearing technology that works in combination with a directional beamformer

Lumity wearers can benefit from reduced listening effort in noise1 thanks to Dynamic Noise Cancellation. This spatial noise cancellation system works in combination with a directional beamformer.

 

Motion Sensor Hearing

Hearing technology that detects if hearing aid user is moving or stationary

Detects if the Lumity user is stationary or moving, plus how noisy the surroundings are. And together with AutoSense OS, steer the microphone mode for more environmental awareness.

 

Automatically adjusts to the sound environment

ActiveVent™ Receiver – the world’s first intelligent hearing aid receiver – is a hearing aid speaker that combines both comfort and hearing performance. It attaches to Lumity hearing aids and blocks out noise in loud environments while providing clients with a comfortable and natural listening experience in quiet, giving 10% better speech understanding in loud noise.**1

ActiveVent is intelligently controlled by AutoSense OS 5.0 and automatically adjusts Lumity hearing aids to suit many environments.
