Innovative Technology Focused on Conversations
Unitron is a Canadian hearing solutions manufacturer, however, they are owned by the Sonova Group which also owns Phonak. Unitron delivers hearing aids that focus on conversations in different sound environments. They are an innovative company that has introduced radically new technology like the Flex concept and Log It All. Their focus is on allowing the user to achieve the best experience possible. On top of that, their new North hearing aids are outstanding
Unitron's latest offering is the North™ platform, it's newest ground-breaking sound processing platform that can distinguish between different types of conversation. Unitron hearing aids are split into five levels of technology, in real terms, it is four levels with a basement. The levels of technology are designated with a number, in the new North Platform, the flagship hearing aids are designated Pro, then 900, 700, 600 which is the basic aid. However, as I said, they have a basement level which is designated the 500. Within each technology level, there is RIC / RITE devices they call Moxi and BTE and ITE devices they call Stride.
The key feature in the new North platform is Unitron's new SoundNav™, it is a technology that automatically identifies and classifies seven distinct sound environments. Four of them are focused specifically on conversation. Unitron has also updated many of their existing features and introduced some brand new ones designed to help you hear speech clearly in every situation you face.
The North chip can tell what type of environment you are currently in and it will decide what settings to use depending on what it finds.
There are seven separate environmental types and the aids will adjust themselves automatically as you go along. The main focus will always be on speech sounds. These environments are;
- Conversations in quiet
- Conversations in a small group
- Conversations in a crowd
- Conversations in noise
- General noise without speech present
Clear Conversation in Every Situation
Conversations don’t just occur in quiet situations nor in simple noise. Background noise varies greatly depending on whether the listener is in small groups, at large events, in the car or on the street. The technologies in the new platform work together in harmony so that users experience the best speech understanding along with natural sound quality, in the widest variety of situations automatically.
New Logging Feature
Unitron have also introduced Log It All™, an industry first data logging feature that captures and displays a user’s experiences with their hearing instruments across seven environments regardless of the technology level of the hearing aid.
This gives us the ability to measure the performance of hearing instruments in everyday use, as well as during trial and upgrade situations. It helps us explain the benefits of different technology levels in a personal way. It also allows us to deliver fine tuning in a more focused way. Let us take a deeper look at the hearing aid types available within the ranges.

Unitron Stride, A Hearing Device To Suit Every Taste
The new Stride family of behind-the-ear (BTE) and in-the-ear (ITE) styles has style choices to satisfy every need and technology that lets you focus on conversations like never before. Stride is the name that Unitron has given to the new full range family of hearing aids. The family has a full range of traditional Behind The Ear and In The Ear hearing aid styles.
The technology in the Stride family is based on the new North platform, they haven't settled on introducing a new platform though. New advances in custom hearing aid design has allowed them to introduce even smaller custom hearing aids with more onboard features than ever before. For the first time, they have even fitted directional microphones on a CIC, something that has never been done before. Their CIC is also wireless enabled, so you can choose a very discreet option and not miss out on the benefits that wireless technology delivers.
The Stride hearing aids come in three BTE versions, and six custom ITE hearing aid types.

Moxi Hearing Aids
Along with the launch of the North platform, Unitron has announced it is introducing a new generation of its popular receiver-in-canal (RIC) Moxi™ hearing instruments. The all-new Moxi Fit™ continues the design principles used to deliver the Moxi design. It has a fluid new look, giving users the perfect combination of style and functionality with a 312 battery, push button and telecoil. Moxi Fit joins Moxi Kiss™ and Moxi Dura™, all available in five technology levels and all built on the North platform.
The new Moxi hearing instruments on the North platform are fully integrated with Unitron’s industry-leading Flex:trial™ program, which allows hearing healthcare professionals send patients home with free trial hearing instruments, and Flex:upgrade™, which facilitates in-clinic technology upgrades as hearing needs change.
The new Moxi hearing instruments on the North platform are fully integrated with Unitron’s industry-leading Flex:trial™ program, which allows us to demonstrate to patients exactly what they are interested in buying.
As we said, the Moxi RIC hearing aids comes in three distinct styles.
- Moxi Fit The "Fit" is only slightly larger than the Kiss, it includes both a push button and onboard telecoil which isn't often available on smaller RIC aids.
- Moxi Kiss The "Kiss" is the slimmest and most discrete of the RIC options from Unitron, it is an exceptionally discreet option if you are not interested in the extra features which add size to the Moxi Fit and Moxi Dura.
- Moxi Dura The "Dura" is the most powerful of the three RIC devices available, it is slightly larger to provide the amplification needed. If you are looking for a discreet Moxi solution but have a severe to profound hearing loss then this is the device for you.
