Challenges of comparative hearing aid fitting
Health insurance companies demand a comparative fitting. Usually at least two hearing systems are compared – sometimes even three. This requires a precise connection solution with which RIC receivers can be easily exchanged. The SMART SOCKET 2.0 from Hörluchs® was specially developed to overcome these challenges.
Secure fit for RIC receivers
Due to its special inner geometry, the SMART SOCKET 2.0 provides an excellent hold for all RIC receivers. With the improved socket, they can be positioned easily. In addition, the material adheres very well in the earmould due to the clearly defined adhesive area. The high-quality, silicone-like material makes the SMART SOCKET 2.0 exceptionally resistant. Even if the RIC receivers are changed frequently, the sleeve reliably retains its shape. The SMART SOCKET 2.0 can be easily drilled out with a standard rose drill (ø 2.9 mm).
Multiple filter options for maximum flexibility
There is one SMART SOCKET 2.0 variant each for HF4 and ProWax filters. Both filter versions can be easily installed. When you place the ProWax filter, you will hear a noticeable click. An additional step in the sleeve ensures that the HF4 filter is not pushed through when it is inserted. The new colour scheme in red and blue matches the familiar colour side assignment in the hearing aid sector.
