All the styles above of the Oticon Nera 2 Pro contain the same technological features but are just wrapped up in different packages to suit your lifestyle, hearing loss and personal preference. The Nera 2 Pro is Oticon's advanced, mid level hearing aid providing excellent hearing from the Inium Sense platform. The Inium Sense delivers 30% more processing power, increasing understanding of soft speech by as much as 20%.
The Nera 2 Pro and the Nera 2 are 16 frequency channel hearing aids with bandwidth up to 8kHz. This is reduced from 10kHz in the Alta 2 and Alta 2 Pro. More channels means better sound quality reproduction and more scope for manipulation. Higher bandwidth creates a more natural sound with more high frequency amplification so it's fantastic for listening to music or birdsong. However, 16 channels and 8kHz bandwidth is great value for a mid range product.
The Nera 2 Pro's stand out features are Advanced Spatial Sound and Binaural Processing. Binaural Processing is when the hearing aids are wirelessly connected to each other and are able to share information about the sound environment. They can then effectively alter features such as noise reduction (Noise Management) and intensity (Spatial Sound) independently in both ears to give the best all round result. It is important to note that only the Alta 2 Pro and the Nera 2 Pro have the Spatial Sound feature but the Nera 2 Pro lacks the Spatial Noise Management feature found in the Alta 2 Pro. It's this that makes the Spatial Sound feature so more effective (Premium) than in the Oticon Nera Pro (Advanced).
The Nera 2 Pro has 3 automatic personal profiles for individual personalisation and the Soft Speech Booster is an excellent new feature that is in both the Alta and Nera ranges. Soft voices are particularly difficult to follow but the Inium Sense processor allows more gain on soft speech enriching those more intimate and private conversations without compromising on sound quality.
Tinnitus SoundSupport is built in to all the Pro models and it is the first hearing aid to offer ocean sounds in addition to a large number of other options. Customisation is simple, as are the controls and you're audiologist will help set everything up via our thorough tinnitus assessment.
