Hear life from both sides

tandem-category-chart

Many individuals living with no useable hearing in one ear mistakenly believe that nothing can be done to improve their situation.

There is a solution — Tandem™

Tandem™ is a new CROS/BiCROS hearing instrument designed to overcome the difficulties associated with hearing in only one ear. The system picks up sounds on your poor ear side and transfers them to your better ear. Should you have hearing loss in your better ear, Tandem will also help you hear more of what is occurring on your better side.

The choice is yours

Tandem offers you the choice of two technology levels—Tandem 16 and Tandem 4—each providing a unique mix of impressive features designed to increase your confidence and freedom.

Limitations to hearing in only one ear

Experience embarrassment due to missed conversations
Risk offending people by not answering when your name is called
Lack awareness of warning signals originating from poor ear side
Avoid social functions because they are overwhelming
Feel stress over where to sit at an event to ensure that you can hear what key people are saying
Turn head frequently to put better ear toward sound sources of interest

Benefits of hearing from both sides with Tandem™

Enhanced ability to participate more fully in conversations
Greater awareness of your name being called with the opportunity to respond
Improved perception of warning signals originating from your poor ear side
Increased confidence when attending social functions

Freedom to go where you’d like with the knowledge that you will not miss out
Hear sounds originating on your poor ear side without turning your head

What’s the difference between CROS and BiCROS?

CROS - the transmitter hearing instrument (HI) microphone located on your poor ear picks up sound from that side of your head and sends it to the receiver HI on your better ear to hear.

BiCROS - the transmitter hearing instrument (HI) microphone located on your poor ear picks up sound from that side of your head and sends it to the receiver HI located on your better ear. Since the better ear has some hearing loss, a second microphone on the receiver HI picks up sound at the better ear and amplifies all sounds to help you hear more effectively.
