Unitron was originally a Canadian hearing instrument company, who was bought by Sonova, the same company who owns Phonak hearing aids, several years ago. Their research and development is still based in Canada, but their production facility is on the same grounds as Phonak in Switzerland.
Unitron has always been a leader in producing great value hearing aids. They generally seem to select the best technologies on the market and package them into a lower cost, well-performing hearing aid. In the last few years, they have innovated with their own technologies such as SoundNav and SpeechFocus, which proven to significantly improve a hearing aid user's hearing in noise. They share the same super-fast chipset with Phonak, so their hearing aids are truly high Quality. Their latest Discover Next Range of instruments contains the most recent chipset technology driving some really innovative software for better hearing in all situations. Their range now includes rechargeable models and direct to any Mobile phone connectivity. The DX Stride 3 is one of the best featured fully subsidised hearing aids for pensioners in Australia.
