SoundDNA Platform

The revolutionary technology behind What Life Sounds Like

The Sonic SoundDNA platform combines an array of automatic, adaptive, and flexible hearing aid technologies for a clear, natural sound experience.

SmartCompress

Configurable adaptive compression system for intelligent amplification in noise. Speech Variable Processing (SVP) is the unique digital signal processing strategy that gives Sonic hearing aids their signature sound. SVP works with SmartCompress to provide natural and detailed amplification for your patients.

  • More listening comfort in noise
  • Improved ease of listening in noise
  • Natural sound quality

Adaptive Feedback Canceller Pro

A 2-in-1 system for better feedback control. A feedback monitor, an adaptive filter, and phase cancellation ensure that signals coming from the output of the receiver are subtracted from the microphone’s input to cancel feedback from the static feedback path. A fast-acting supplementary system manages feedback associated with sudden, unpredictable changes from the dynamic feedback path.

  • Feedback cancelled in both stable and changing conditions
  • Improved audibility of soft speech sounds
  • More open fittings for a natural, own-voice sound

SoundDNA Binaural Noise Management

Binaural Noise Management

Uses wireless technology to offset unpredictable noises that affect one side more than the other. Binaural Noise Management compares noise levels at each ear and reduces the loudest noise for a more balanced sound. Available in Captivate 100 and 80 technology levels. All Captivate technology levels include other noise reduction technologies, like these:

  • Impulse Noise Reduction lessens the discomfort of sudden, loud sounds
  • Wind Noise Reduction adjusts to outside activities
  • Soft Noise Reduction reduces low-level noise
SoundDNA Extended Dynamic Range

Extended Dynamic Range

To clarify loud speech, Captivate 100 offers Extended Dynamic Range (EDR) technology that expands the dynamic range of sound up to 113 dB SPL. As sounds grow in intensity, EDR provides clarity — especially helpful in movie theaters, performances, auditoriums, and other places where sudden dramatic sounds really make the moment.

SoundDNA IFTTT

IFTTT

Captivate devices can connect to other smart devices on The Internet of Things, using the If This Then That (IFTTT) network. Users can get audible signals for an email received or an alert when someone’s at the front door. When its power is low, the hearing aids can send a text message to remind your patient to change the battery. New uses for IFTTT are appearing every day, with smart devices like these:

  • Entertainment systems
  • Electricity and thermostat controllers
  • Car stereos or remote starters
  • Smartphone apps
  • Home security systems and kitchen devices

* Requires SoundLink 2 App.

SoundDNA IP Rating

IP68 Rating

This rating for all Captivate devices assures your patients that their hearing aids are protected from dust, sweat, and water, and easier to maintain, improving the overall patient experience.

SoundDNA Smart Music

SmartMusic

SmartMusic adds greater enjoyment to the live music experience by extending the dynamic range of sound to a fixed-level of 113 dB SPL. With this program, listeners and performers alike are immersed in dynamic, clear music at its best.
