Unitron Announces Premium Hearing Instruments for Quantum and Moxi
Quantum Pro and Moxi Pro feature binaural spatial processing for enhanced listening in the most challenging situations
March 1st, 2012 - Kitchener, Canada – Unitron announced today new premium hearing instruments for its Quantum™ and Moxi™ product families. Built on Era™, Unitron’s latest generation platform, Quantum Pro and Moxi Pro deliver industry leading enhancements, including binaural spatial processing and SpeechZone™, to enrich clients’ hearing experience and speech understanding – even in the most challenging listening environments.
Know the direction of speech with binaural spatial processing
The power of the Era platform has made Unitron’s unique binaural spatial processing possible in Moxi Pro and Quantum Pro.

Pro zones in on speech
SpeechZone is the newest feature in Moxi Pro and Quantum Pro, automatically letting clients clearly enjoy conversations – even in the toughest listening situations. Enabled by binaural spatial processing, SpeechZone activates maximum directionality when the hearing instruments determine that speech is coming from the front in a noisy environment. Listening becomes easier as both hearing instruments automatically zero in on speech, with no need for a wearer to adjust their hearing instrument controls.
“Knowing the direction of speech is a very significant step forward in our efforts to deliver a natural sound experience with superior performance in speech intelligibility,” says Don Hayes, Director of Audiology, Unitron. “Advanced features such as binaural spatial processing and SpeechZone™ put new technologies in the hands of hearing healthcare professionals enabling them to address the number one complaint of clients: understanding speech in noise.”
