What is Unique About the Evolv AI Wireless CIC?
We're extremely excited to introduce is the world's smallest 2.4 gigahertz wireless CIC. This is something that we've been asked about now for a couple of years truthfully, when are we going to come out with a wireless CIC that fits like a CIC. And the answer is now. With Evolv AI, you have this incredibly cosmetic appealing wireless CIC device with all the advances of the effortless hearing components but with the wireless functionality that patients really are, for the most part, demanding in almost every hearing aid today.
We have a revolutionary antenna design. I'm sure pretty much every person that's listening here today has had a patient that they fit with the CIC, and the patient refers to the removal handle as the antenna, and you've told them, ''Well, no, it's not an antenna. It's just the way to get the hearing aid out of your ear.'' Well, now with our Evolv AI wireless CIC, that is actually the antenna. You want to have robust connectivity, and it's difficult to do that with a device that's deep in the ear and get all of the wireless components built into that shell. We're doing that with the revolutionary antenna built into the retrieval line.
