OtoLens is designed to be removed daily to promote better ear health and allows wearers to change the batteries on their own without needing additional tools or visits to their hearing care professionals. The instrument also contains other S Series iQ features including PureWave Feedback Eliminator, providing industry-leading feedback cancellation, and T2 Remote, which enables patients to adjust their IIC’s volume or memory with a cell or touch-tone phone.
