  • Advances in sound processing technology

    Sound processing in Ponto devices is under constant development to provide you with the most recent technology and improved performance. In Ponto 5 Mini, OpenSound Navigator™ allows you to enjoy a full, balanced soundscape across all listening environments. By allowing more sounds to the brain, you have the option to shift your attention, to switch conversations and to follow what's going on. Additionally, OpenSound Optimizer™ technology provides a unique way of detecting and preventing audible feedback from occurring. 

    The new Ponto 5 Mini is designed to optimise your hearing experience, let you enjoy new features, and deliver more wireless capabilities that help you stay connected to the world around you. It even allows you to attend online appointments with your audiologist and have sound processor adjustments carried out remotely. 

  • Changes in your hearing or lifestyle

    Hearing loss and your ability to process sound can change over time, as can your listening needs. If you have experienced changes in your hearing it might be a good time to speak to your audiologist about whether an upgrade is the right solution. Your audiologist can assess your current listening needs, allow you to try the latest sound processors, and may recommend an upgrade to new technologies that are better able to suit your needs.

  • Sound Processor reaching end of life

    While the Ponto sound processors are designed for durability and reliability, damage or loss can occur over time which may mean you need to replace your processor. However, you do not need to wait until your sound processor stops working. Pre-emptively upgrading will keep you one step ahead, and if you have had your sound processor for several years it’s probably time to upgrade.

Talk to your audiologist about Ponto upgrade

Try out the Ponto 5 Mini

Upgrading your Ponto starts by talking to your audiologist who can help you navigate the upgrade process. Your audiologist can also explain the benefits of an upgrade and let you see, feel and try out different sound processor models on the abutment you already have. Choosing to upgrade requires no additional surgery or downtime.

Learn why Camilla loved upgrading to a new Ponto

Camilla was born with bilateral microtia and atresia and wore a traditional hearing aid for almost 30 years until she learned about bone anchored solutions. After trying different brands of bone anchored devices, Camilla decided that a Ponto was just the right solution for her. Fast-forwarding to today, she was later upgraded to a next-generation Ponto. Watch the video to hear Camilla share her upgrade experience.

Now I’m able to hear everything that’s around me.
