Amaze hearing aids run on Beltone’s latest processor platform that integrates premium sound processing, wireless connectivity, and rechargeability. Designed for people with mild-to-severe hearing loss, Amaze provides the same sound quality and technology as the ReSound LiNX Quattro, a popular hearing aid developed by Beltone and ReSound’s parent company, GN Hearing. The primary difference between the LiNX Quattro and Beltone Amaze is that the Beltone product comes with lifetime support from 1500 Beltone Hearing Care Centers, nationwide.
The Amaze family is available in a variety of form factors, and offers all the features one might expect: Speech in noise recognition, directional microphones, wind noise reduction, background noise reduction, automatic volume control, feedback cancellation, and wireless synchronization. In addition, Amaze offers a number of cutting-edge bells and whistles:
Android streaming via ASHA
Hands-free calling via the Beltone PhoneLink 2
Smartphone app control
Remote programming support
The Amaze family comes in seven colors to match patients’ skin and hair tones. The custom hearing aids use standard-sized disposable hearing aid batteries. And the RIC Amaze hearing aids have integrated lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. A charging station accessory supplies an overnight charge to provide all-day power.
Beltone was among the first to offer Made-for-iPhone connectivity, and Amaze hearing aids deliver wireless streaming of audio to hearing aids from Android smartphones as well. Beltone’s parent, GN Hearing, collaborated with Google, and Cochlear Ltd. to introduce the first direct Android streaming to hearing aids and hearing implants using Bluetooth Low Energy wireless technology.
With nearly 80% of the world’s mobile users relying on Android phones and devices, delivering on the promise of the new Android Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA) protocol provides wireless smartphone hearing aid connectivity to a broader potential customer base than ever before.
Amaze hearing aids also work with Beltone’s 2.4 GHz Direct Line wireless accessories, including remote microphones, audio streaming devices for phones and TV’s, and handheld remote controllers.
Amaze hearing aids also work with Beltone’s smartphone apps. The HearMax app provides remote control capabilities, management of smartphone and 2.4 GHz streaming accessories, and remote support from your audiologist. The HearPlus app provides simple remote control of the hearing aids. And the Smart Remote app can be used with the Direct Line wireless accessories to manage audio streaming from the TV, phone and music players.
