* This product has been discontinued by the manufacturer. At HearingDirect.com you will find an unbeatable range of affordable hearing aids to help you effectively manage hearing loss.
The Siemens Intuis is a rare commodity amongst the modern day world of electronic gadgets of whatever nature. It is a simple to use, yet good quality entry level product that the world’s foremost manufacturer has pitched firmly at the first time or occasional hearing aid user.
It is a four channel system so there is a degree of flexibility for the hearing aid audiologist to be able to match the product to your individual loss and ensure that you get the amplification that you need at the frequencies where you are suffering most.
Some hearing aid manufacturers have restricted their entry level products to a single product format and this denial of consumer choice must be geared to encourage the customer up through their product portfolio. Siemens have accommodated people’s varied wishes with a portfolio of five different formats, four of which are ITE (in the ear) models of varying size and one BTE (behind the ear). Many first time users will naturally assume that, for hearing aids, smaller is always better but that is not always the case. Take the time to understand the pros and cons of each size and shape, as the hearing aid that works best for you will be far more satisfying than blindly seeking cosmetic invisibility. Your hearing aid audiologist will be able to give sound advice in this area.
The sound processing algorithms used within the Intuis do not have the scope and flexibility of the more complex products but they do incorporate feedback management and a noise reduction system. Particularly, if you intend to use your hearing aid primarily in easy listening environments, such as around the home or in one to one conversations these algorithms may well prove to be all that you need. However, a word of caution; if you feel you need significant help in complex, noisy situations such as pubs, restaurants or a busy office you may well require something more than the entry level Intuis can offer. Before you visit your hearing aid audiologist take the time to carefully consider the places, people, and situations that cause you the most difficulty in hearing. If the hearing aid audiologist can fully appreciate your needs then they will offer the best direction for you.
In summary, the Siemens quality ensures long-term performance and they are available in a variety of models and personal designs to fit most hearing losses and tastes.
