Question

What products are available on the Siemens binax platform?

Answer

There are four Receiver in Canal (RIC) instruments available at the 7bx and 5bx performance levels: Pure binax, Carat binax, Carat A binax and Ace binax. 

Pure uses a 312 battery, and a similar proven and well-accepted housing design as the Pure micon. It is comparable to size 10 RICs on the market from other companies. It is rechargeable, fully featured, and includes a T-coil, and full wireless connectivity. 

The Carat binax and the Carat A binax use size 13 batteries, but the housing is very comparable to the 312 housing. There is very little difference in the sizes, but the 13 battery enables more battery capacity and the option of a stronger receiver that provides up to 75 dB of gain. The Carat binax is rechargeable and has wireless connectivity.  In contrast, the Carat A is nonrechargeable but has the option for a battery door with direct audio input.  It is exciting to offer a RIC device with direct audio input (DAI) capability.  This is perfect for those people that prefer a really discrete DAI option.  It also has wireless connectivity. 

Ace binax uses a size 10 battery.  It is very small and discrete, and the touchControl app provides remote control capabilities.  It is really attractive, and very appealing both in the hand and on the ear. 

Thanks for your interest in binax.  For more information, please visit www.usa.siemens.com/hearing or the Siemens Expo Page on AudiologyOnline.
