How does the ActiveVent Receiver work?

ActiveVent is a receiver that incorporates a built-in vent in combination with a mechanical element -- a small disc that is moved between two positions: an open and a closed position. A reassuring click signals to the client that the disc has changed its position.


Open position

When the disc is in the open position, direct sound is able to pass through the receiver’s built-in vent and thus provides the comfort of an open fit, naturalness of own-voice and awareness of environmental sounds.

Closed position

In challenging listening situations with speech in loud noise, or when streaming, the disc moves to a closed position, blocking out environmental sound directly entering the ear, thus increasing focus of speech in front and streaming content. 

All this is intelligently and automatically controlled by AutoSense OS 5.0.


Inside the ActiveVent

Rediscover the wonder of sound in more situations than ever before. Listen to the sound demo yourself, best experienced with headphones.
