The Stride line of Unitron’s hearing aids are their Behind-The-Ear (BTE) models. You may be asking, “Well aren’t RIC hearing aids behind the ear already?” While both RIC and BTE hearing aids are technically behind-the-ear, the BTE has more components behind the ear. Recall that RIC hearing aids have a speaker which sits in the ear canal. BTE hearing aids on the other hand, have the microphone, receiver (speaker), and sound processor all behind the ear, with just a thin tube running around the ear and into the ear canal.
Like the Moxi, the Stride line comes in 5 tiers (T500, T600, T700, T800, T Pro) and several variations as well. As you move up in the tiers, you’ll find each hearing aid has more features than the last, but all of them have several basic features. Known as SoundCore, Unitron’s group of four intelligent features work together to understand your patient’s listening environment, making fluid adjustments so they can actively participate in every conversation, wherever they go. SoundCore’s features include:
Other features included with every model of Stride hearing aids are Sound Stabilization, Experience Innovation, Convenience, and Fitting.
The Stride model comes in several variations depending on the consumers needs. The Stride M is the most popular model, and the new Stride M R features a rechargeable battery. The Stride P and Stride P Dura provide additional features, such as prolonged battery life.
