Oticon Ruby Technology
Oticon New (2020) Ruby Range operate on the Velox chip and has full Bluetooth capabilities.
Oticon positions the Ruby range in their essential (budget) range and is an update to Oticon’s Siya Range of hearing aids.
Though positioned as essential, Oticon Ruby contains several advanced features to improve speech in noise, is fast and responsive and contains good noise reduction technology.
The Ruby contains a new SuperShield feedback management system which prevents whistling before it occurs.
The Oticon On App allows the user to control and adjust their Oticon hearing aids.
The App also allows users to connect their hearing aids to other devices using the (IFTTT) protocol. For example, a user could get a notification in their hearing aids when the doorbell rings or a text message could be sent to the carer when they turn on their hearing aids.
Oticon Ruby has made-for-iPhone (MFi) technology built in, meaning you can take calls or stream music direct from an iPhone. For Android and other Bluetooth devices, an Oticon Connect Clip is required.
Oticon Ruby has two technology levels in the Ruby 1 and Ruby 2 range. Full features and a comparison can be found by clicking the compare tab.
