"sound SHD, the hearing systems with external receivers"

Sound SHD’s powerful new SphereHD chip uses advanced algorithms to Digitally Process Sounds (DSP) using spacial acoustics so you hear naturally in constantly changing sound environments. Speech discrimination, sound localization, and noise management innovations provide cutting-edge hearing-loss solutions.

The four performance levels of Sound SHD are all CRT/RIC hearing aids, which means the speaker is in the ear canal. This type of sound delivery system is considered to have the best sound quality.

Hansaton Sound SHD model explanation:

All Hansaton’s Sound SHD hearing aid models come with the same technology and differ in size only. Three battery/model choices:

  • Sound SHD 10 uses a size 10A battery and is the smallest at only 3/4 of an inch in length but gives up the onboard button and telecoil functionality that the other two models have.
  • Sound SHD S312 uses a 312 battery. This size is a nice balance between size and battery-life - most popular model
    • Sound SHD S13 uses a size 13 battery, it’s little bigger and has a long-life battery. This is the best choice for people with moderate to severe hearing loss

    • uTV3 - Streams TV audio to the uStream or uDirect 3.
    • uDirect3 - is a wireless remote control capable of streaming stereo sound from other wireless devices to Unitron hearing aids with the SphereHD platform. The connection between the uDirect and the SphereHD hearing aids is via a neck loop. Other devices such as MP3 players, FM receivers, can be connected directly to the uDirect.

The two most common technologies used in hearing aids are analog and digital. Digital is newer and considered to be much more flexible, capable of doing more operations, and the only technology used in modern hearing aids.
Open Fit Type RIC / CRT
Human speech ranges in frequencies roughly from 250 to 6000 Hz. Hearing aids are built so that this group of frequencies (250 to 6000 Hz) is divided into smaller groups, called bands or channels.
Multiple memory settings can be programmed into the aid to give the user the ability to cope with changing sound and noise environments with the push of a button.
Technology Level Standard
Volume Control
Volume control is generally considered to be a manual adjustment that the user can control. All hearing aids have automatic gain control designed to make soft sounds audible and loud sounds tolerable. This is done automatically within limits programmed into the device.
Available with Remote
On-Board Control Type
Controls on hearing aids usually have one or more of:
1. A momentary button used to change from one memory to the next
2. A button used to increase the level of volume
3. A rocker switch where pushing on one end does one function while the other end does another function
4. A wheel that will control volume
Memory Button
Remote Control Available
Remote controls for hearing aids are small enough to comfortably fit in a pocket. A remote control will enable more functions than can be put on a hearing aid itself.
Directional Microphones
Microphones are the electronic component that picks up sound. Microphones are very small and can be made to pick up more sound in one direction than all others. This is called a directional microphone.
Noise Reduction
Technology to separate voices from other sounds is continuously being improved. Each manufacturer has a patented process and trademarked name for noise reduction.
Sudden Noise Protection
This feature helps make hearing aids acoustically comfortable by dampening sudden loud noises, such as a dropped dish.
Wind Noise Protection
Wind noise is an important feature for those that spend time in the outdoors by reducing the roar of wind across the microphone. This feature is improving but is not effective in gusty wind conditions.
Feedback Management
Acoustic Feedback, is also known as squealing, buzzing, 'your aids are talking to you', etc.
Telecoils help with telephones that are rated hearing aid compatible.
Aid-to-Aid Communication
Communication from one hearing aid to the other is a very low strength signal designed to keep both hearing aids operating in the same mode at the same volume.
Bluetooth Capable
Being able to couple your hearing aids with a BlueTooth-enabled device, such as a cell phone, allows phone conversations to be heard through your hearing aids.
Direct Audio Input (DAI)
DAI is only on Large and Full Size hearing aids due to the need for terminals on the outside of the case. Using DAI allows other devices to connect directly to the hearing aids and input their audio signal.
Battery Size/Color
Conventional Hearing Aid Batteries cost less than a dollar per battery and are very easy to change.
Depends on Model
Warranty 3 years
Loss/Damage Warranty 1 year


These are the features for the Sound SHD 5.

  • SphereSound SHD; static, and SHD spatial analysis
  • SpeechBeam SHD-1 uses directional data from both hearing aids combined with advanced noise reduction technology to increase understanding speech from speakers in front of you in noisy environments.
  • Speech Locator Rapidly resolves the direction of speech sounds.
  • Spatial Awareness uses directional data from both hearing aids to analyze and map changing sound environments so you know where sounds come from.
AutoSurround SHD 6 is a smart sound-recognition technology that automatically detects the type of noise around you and selects the best of six sound environment programs to improve speech comprehension no matter where life takes you.
