AutoSense OS and AutoSense Sky OS: the next generation of technology automation

Hearing aids with AutoSense OS recognize and automatically adapt to more of your client’s listening situations than ever before. AutoSense OS accurately captures and analyzes the sound environment, then precisely blends feature elements from multiple programs in real time to provide a seamless listening experience.

AutoSense Sky OS has been specifically designed to ensure that kids and teens have an optimal listening experience in their unique listening situations. These include the classroom, on the playground, when listening to music or with their family. For example, the dedicated pediatric classifier leads to greater comfort in the presence of loud speech and yelling, as compared to the AutoSense for adult system1.
