PISCATAWAY, N.J. and ERLANGEN, Germany, July 1 Siemens Hearing Instruments, Inc., the largest manufacturer of hearing instruments in the world, continues to show their commitment to personalizing solutions for those with hearing loss by launching the new Pure 300 RIC BTE hearing instrument, the newest addition to the Pure family of products.
The tiny Pure 300 is rechargeable, subtle and equipped with a range of valued features in a discreet design. Pure 300 complements the 700 and 500 models to allow wearers to choose an instrument that meets their lifestyle needs.
"Users will have the same combination of a tiny, flexible and discreet hearing instrument that is more affordable than ever," says Dr. Tom Powers, Siemens Hearing Vice President of Audiology and Compliance. "Pure 300 provides yet another option for those with up to moderately severe hearing loss."
The new Pure product includes compatibility with the Siemens Tek(TM) wireless enhancement system. Tek is a Bluetooth(R) accessory that allows users to stream sound from audio devices such as mobile phones, MP3 players and televisions.
