Audicus Alto Behind the ear product

Meet The Alto

Audicus is proud to add a new hearing aid to a product line already boasting devices with incredible user friendliness, attractive designs, and crystal-clear sound. The latest Audicus hearing aid, the Alto, is a behind-the-ear (BTE) device with a receiver-in-canal (RIC). Latin for “high,” the name Alto serves to reflect this product’s high caliber of design and sound processing technology. Read on to find out more:

Hearing Aid Improvements

We developed the Alto with the knowledge that the hearing aid market has evolved at an exciting pace these past few years. With the rise of wearables and the subsequent introduction of ‘hearables,’ there is certainly a wider range of assistive hearing products than ever before. Our new Alto is a shining example of some of the greatest sound filtration in modern hearing aid technology. The Alto behind-the-ear hearing aid uses an advanced speech detection algorithm. This new-to-market technology helps to distinguish between conversation noise and background noise, providing the user with astonishing mimicry to true hearing.

Friendly for the User, Easy on the Eyes

The Alto is the successor to our popular Canto RIC device. We were careful to improve upon a few areas, combining the most beloved aspects of the Canto with increased user friendliness and ease to produce the Alto.

The Canto’s auto-adapt feature– the ability to adjust to auditory environmental stimuli– has been refined and applied to the Alto’s sound capabilities. The Alto is our easiest-to-use RIC ever, with just one program, a contrast to the Canto’s four. While this decrease in number of programs may initially seem inflexible, it actually allows for a greater range of processing capability. The Alto’s singular program is so dynamic that its auto-adapt functionality truly only requires this one program. Additionally, this means that the Alto has just one button, rather than two.

Users can still control for volume with the single button on the Alto; volume will cycle through from low to high so that users can add in a touch of personal preference as well.

A new feature that we’re thrilled to offer on the Alto is the tinnitus-masking element. Tinnitus, a ringing in the ears, can be aggravated by hearing loss. The two conditions combined can be debilitating and frustrating. Luckily, the Alto has tinnitus-masking technology that can remedy this condition while treating hearing loss simultaneously.

As always, Audicus places a great deal of value on appearance. The Alto is no different. Sleek as ever, smaller than a quarter, and virtually hidden from the naked eye, the Alto’s modern look reflects its ahead of the curve technology.

Don’t Forget- Bluetooth!

The Alto is equipped with optional Bluetooth capability. By far the most refined Bluetooth system we have ever offered, the Alto with Bluetooth has a wider range of connectivity to hear consistently clearer sound. Using your Bluetooth-capable smartphones, TVs, or tablets with hearing aids has never been so simple– or so stylish.
