PROS: The Unitron Max is designed especially for individuals with severe to profound hearing loss. The focus of the Max is to allow for speech clarity using 3 key technologies. Frequency transposition technology shifts sounds away from areas where hearing is most damaged to a region where the hearing is more useful. Smart focus allows the Unitron Max to use all of its features to work together and communicate so that you will get the best possible speech understanding. Finally the Unitron Max uses traditional hearing prescriptions methods to give you dependable sound, and its powerful chip gives you all the amplification you need. The Unitron Max is also wireless compatible, which means that the aids can communicate with your mobile phone, TV and home phone through a streaming device. This will help you to hear on the phone clearly as the voice will go into both ears at the same time. The Unitron Max does a great job at helping full time hearing aid users get the best speech understanding possible with a device that is prepared for hard work.
CONS: Due to the amplification and power required in the Unitron Max, only Behind-The-Ear styles are available.
