Models and features
Where hearing loss and lifestyle are concerned, no two people are alike – but that’s not a problem for Ponto. The advanced features and sound quality can be carefully customized to meet each user’s individual preferences and lifestyle. Depending on listening needs and budget, three models are available: Ponto, Ponto Pro and Ponto Pro Power.
While Ponto offers a number of advanced features, Ponto Pro and Ponto Pro Power offer additional features such as Automatic Multiband Adaptive Directionality, Tri-state Noise Reduction, Data Logging and Learning Volume Control.
While Ponto is suitable for the same type and degree of hearing loss as Ponto Pro, Ponto Pro Power targets more severe hearing losses.
Ponto, Ponto Pro and Ponto Pro Power features
The table below provides a clear overview of the features offered by the three types of Ponto sound processors.
|Automatic Adaptive Multiband 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.|
|This system helps to improve listening comfort by identifying whether only speech is present, only noise is present, or whether there is a mixture of both. Depending on the situation, Ponto will then reduce the noise, while protecting any important speech information.|
|By reducing irritating wind noise this system aims to make listening more pleasurable in outdoor environments.|
|If you adjust your volume control in a consistent manner in specific listening situations over a period of time, Ponto will remember it. And the next time you are in a similar situation, it will automatically copy your adjustments.|
|2-stage Feedback Management System
||This system minimizes the risk of both static and dynamic feedback, and facilitates the full use of the entire range of the volume control without feedback.|
||This feature is designed to preserve the subtle details that make voices easier to distinguish and speech easier to understand, and to prevent distortion or discomfort caused by rapid noise-related changes.|
