Oticon Nera is the newest offering from the Danish manufacturer Oticon. Built on the new Inium platform, the Oticon Nera sits in the advanced level just below the premium product Oticon Alta, that was released earlier this year.
Following Oticon’s usual pattern of release the Nera has two versions, Nera Pro and Nera, and is available is a wide range of styles from the various ‘in the ear’ models through to a wide range of models that sit behind the ear.
The RITE versions make use of the new miniFit receivers first seen on the Alta and Alta Pro RITE / miniRITE models.
Whilst not quite having the leading edge performance of the top of the range Alta the Nera is no slouch. It’s feature set is more than you would expect for a hearing aid in this class and offers great value. Features include Spatial Sound Advanced, Inium Feedback Shield and YouMatic Advanced.
Spatial Sound Advanced – helps to convey more of the natural characteristics of a physical environment and the origin of sounds within it.
Inium Feedback Shield – based on the environment, the system depoloys the best combination of real time phase inversion and frequency shift to deliver great sound quality at all times.
YouMatic Advanced – controls the sound processing in Nera across multiple environments by adjusting the response, directionality, noise management, transient management and compression.
