- Available in multiple product formats
- Three different technology levels
- 48 channel system
- Higher frequency response
- BestSound technology from Siemens
Siemens Micon was launched at the end of 2012 and at that time represented Siemens leading technology chip platform. The Micon is offered at three different technology levels the top-rankes 7mi, the mid 5mi and the entry level 3mi. Within each level are a number of different product formats providing a broad selection of hearing aids to appeal to a wide range of those suffering form hearing loss.
So what’s new about the Micon? The three bullets that Siemens place at the top of the Micon list are:
• The chip has 6,000 times more processing power than was used to put the first man on the moon
• It is a 48 channel system with high frequency resolution
• The frequency range has been extended to 12,000 Hz
There is a degree of marketing behind these statements and I am not sure of the relevance between’s NASA’s historic processing and today’s modern day hearing aids but it makes for a good headline. There is no doubt that the Siemens Micon is a very impressive new system from the world’s leading hearing aid manufacturer. The audiologists behind it have strived to achieve a balance between loudness and speech clarity, which is nothing new but they have tried to do so from a point of view the actual perception of the user rather than a pure laboratory analysis. If this is the case and real people will benefit from this new system then we can only applaud their efforts.
There are many decision to make and much to ponder over. What product format would suit you best? The Micon has up to six primary formats. What technology level to you really need? It is clear that the Micon has abundant processing capacity but what features do you need and how will that be of listening benefit to you? Is the top ranked 7mi the ultimate solution or will you get all you need from the better value 5mi?
Our advice is to thoroughly investigate this in conjunction with a hearing aid audiologist. Take the time so they fully understand your needs and specify the right product for you. If you follow this route we are confident that the Siemens Micon can be a life changing product and will deliver sound satisfaction.
