Two product families, four signature features
Quantum and Moxi product families each leverage four signature features. These are:
- Automatic performance with SmartFocus™ - Long recognized for a superior automatic approach, Unitron advances this technology by enabling the custom blending of the hearing instruments’ response based on high-resolution sensing and precise classification of the complex sound environment. The Automatic Program is further enhanced by SmartFocus, technology at work in the background that combines adaptive features for optimal speech intelligibility or comfort depending on the situation, to provide a truly effortless way to enjoy all of life’s sounds.
