Part of the Superpower range from Oticon
In November 2015 Oticon introduced the Dynamo SP6 that sits firmly in the mid to lower end of the superpower hearing aid range. The Dynamo SP6 is designed for those who live a relatively quiet life and have a severe to profound hearing loss. (If you find yourself in noisy listening environments often, then the Dynamo SP8 is more likely to suite your needs). It does however retain some of the most essential technical programs to help you glean the most from your listening environment.
What does the Oticon Dynamo SP6 offer?
With the use of a size 13 battery, the Dynamo SP6 is slightly smaller than the average superpower aid on the market, although still substantial as far as BTE’s are concerned. Volume control is easy to adjust with an analogue spinning wheel that has four settings, not unlike the NHS version. The main attraction is the substantial power levels on offer.
- 16 Channels and Six Frequency Bands - ensures your hearing aid can be altered to reflect your hearing requirements.
- Superpower Amplification - means it can provide 143 dB sound pressure level and an impressive 82 dB full on gain.
- Basic Noise Reduction Program - reduces background interference and enhances speech using programs such as:
- FreeFocus Premium Directionality
- Speech Rescue - essential for those with high frequency hearing loss, sound is reduced to a lower, more accessible level, making soft speech easier to grasp.
- Feedback Shield - eradicates unwanted whistling sounds.
- Wireless Capability - ensures you can connect to bimodal fittings associated with cochlear implants and with Connectline telephones.
As the essential model within the range, the Dynamo SP6 is ideal for those who lead a relatively quiet life and don’t wish to waste their money on technology they don’t need. If you live a more active lifestyle and often find yourself in a noisy environment, then you may prefer to consider the Dynamo SP8. The Dynamo SP4 is the most basic model, ideal for those who seek absolute simplicity at an affordable price.
