Key features in Ponto sound processors
Automatic Multiband Adaptive Directionality*
In noisy restaurants or other crowded areas, the directionality system is designed to make people opposite you easier to hear. Whenever you move from one environment to another, Ponto automatically switches to the best setting, to help you focus more easily.
- party 8%
- half-full restaurant 20%
- watching television 72%
Tri-state Noise Reduction*
This system improves listening comfort by identifying whether only speech, only noise, or a combination of the two are present in a situation. The sound processor reduces background noise, while protecting speech clarity.
Wind Noise Reduction
This feature automatically reduces outdoor wind noise so users no longer have to adjust their sound processor to make listening more comfortable in outdoor environments.
2-stage Feedback Management System
All Ponto sound processors have a system that minimises the risk of both static and dynamic feedback. First the individual feedback limit is measured during fitting, then the Dynamic Feedback Cancellation (DFC) feature limits feedback during everyday life. Ponto Plus has an even more advanced DFC system, Inium feedback shield, with more tools for effective feedback management.
This feature is designed to make speech easier to understand by preserving the subtle details that make voices easier to distinguish, and by preventing distortion or discomfort caused by rapid noise-related changes.
Learning Volume Control*
If you adjust your volume control in a consistent manner in specific listening situations over a period of time, the sound processor will remember it. And the next time you are in a similar situation, it will automatically copy your adjustments.
*Available in Ponto Pro and Ponto Plus sound processors.
