About Powered by Lucid Hearing Aids
Powered by Lucid smart technology is the most sophisticated and advanced hearing sound processing available. Hearing aids Powered by Lucid use automatic adjustment algorithms developed for use in cochlear implants to optimize the listening experience of the ever-changing acoustical environment for each listener’s individual needs. Our premium 96-channel hearing aid provides the most natural and comfortable experience and greatest clarity of sound.
Powered by Lucid hearing aids use channels, or filters, that cover a range of frequencies that are analyzed, processed and reproduced by the hearing aid. Single channel hearing aids amplify all sounds equally while hearing aids with more channels process the various frequencies based on what we know is important. This allows you to hear more of what you want, and less of what you don’t. The more channels, the more precise the division of incoming sounds and the more customized your listening experience is to your specific lifestyle and needs.
We offer aids ranging from 16 to 96 channels. Your Lucid Certified Hearing Specialist will be happy to let you try several, so you can experience the difference Lucid’s smart technology makes for your listening experience and your life.
If you’d like to be able to hear better when socializing or going to the theatre, our 64 and 96 channel Powered by Lucid hearing aids have special features to filter out many background noises, leaving you to focus on what is most important.
Don’t just think about your current needs. Powered by Lucid hearing aids are capable of increasing power as your hearing changes. The ability to adjust to your changing needs means your investment lasts longer, often five years.
You need to feel comfortable wearing your hearing aid. Modern Powered by Lucid hearing devices are very discreet and the technology is so advanced there is no need to feel self-conscious.
Lucid Certified Hearing Specialists will be able to help you with some practical advice on what hearing aids are available to you and give recommendations on particular models so you can be confident you’re making the right choice.
Smart Noice Suppression Technology
Sudden Impulse Noise Suppression
This feature is all about comfort. Sudden loud sounds, or impulses, are often so short in duration that amplification systems can’t respond quickly enough to control their loudness. Our Sudden Impulse Noise Suppression engages quickly, detects and suppresses sudden loud sounds such as door slams and clattering dishes while maintaining a natural sound.
Low-Level Noise Suppression
Provides for improved comfort in quiet environments. Noises such as air conditioning, refrigerator motors or internal microphone noise are all reduced by this system. This helps to keep quiet situations quiet.
Environmental Noise Suppression
Environmental noise suppression detects non-speech like noises and reduces their level. This powerful feature makes it easier for the user to focus in noisy environments, especially when they’re trying to perform multiple tasks. For example, driving in a car or noisy restaurants.
Wind Noise Reduction
Detects wind noise and suppresses it, particularly in the lower frequencies where it tends to be loudest. The result is less distraction and noise in outdoor listening situations.
Intelligent Feedback Control
Dynamic Feedback Canceller
Employs a patented technique that adapts continuously to changing circumstances while maintaining excellent sound quality. Unwanted feedback is suppressed and stopped without sacrificing sound quality or gain. It adapts to changing situations such as sitting next to a window in a car.
Fast Acting Feedback Suppression
Reacts quickly to dramatic changes in situations which may cause unwanted feedback such as putting on a hat, a hug, or any situation in which a physical object may come in close proximity to the hearing aid.
Power On Delay (2 sec)
This allows the user time to get the hearing aid situated in the ear, avoiding any unwanted feedback while inserting the device.
A proprietary fitting protocol that combines individual hearing test results, unique ear canal acoustics, and loudness preference to provide truly customized user settings. Hearing aids are adjusted right the first time by including the user in the process, reducing adjustment time while providing the user with the optimal fitting experience.
Learning Volume Control
After the initial fitting, the user will acclimate to their new hearing aids and adjust the volume levels to match their preference. The hearing aids monitor these volume changes over time and learn what the user’s preferred setting is. Over time the user will find that the hearing aids always start at their preferred levels, though they can still adjust it up and down as required in specific situations.
Enhanced Tone Prompts
A series of chimes replaces the simple singular tone prompts.
When you are using a hearing aid for the first time it can be hard to remember everything. Voice prompts take the guesswork out of knowing what program the hearing aid is in. For example: “Everyday Setting”, “Telephone Setting” or “Noise Setting”. Other voice prompts can tell you when your battery is getting low and needs replacing. Over time, the user may prefer to have simple tones in place of these voice prompts. A quick visit to our hearing center and you can switch off the voice prompts and revert back to simple tones.
Aridion™ Nano Technology
Aridion™ Nano Technology coats every aspect of the hearing aid at a nanoscopic level and protects much more thoroughly than alternative approaches. The result is truly durable and the invisible liquid repellent coating (inside and out) substantially improves durability and improves overall user satisfaction. Our revolutionary Nano-coating does not affect working components, maintaining the look, feel and functionality of the hearing device.
Advanced Power Management
Employs the most advanced Digital Signal Processor platform to provide greater processing power and increased battery life.
35% Improvement in Battery Life
Huge improvement in energy efficiency saving the user time and money.
Low Battery indicating signal
Alerts user to change batteries prior to complete battery drain.
