Different Performance Levels

Premium

Premium RICs come with a higher number of programs and available features than advanced models. Complex algorithms assist the user in navigating their daily sound environments. With more programs, the devices are able to remember your preferred settings for each of the locations you travel to (i.e. home, work, gym, restaurant, supermarket) to automatically adjust to your liking. This makes premium RICs effective for more active users.


Advanced

Advanced RIC models are the ideal combination of performance and value. These devices typically offer slightly fewer programs and features than the Premium options but still have a lot to offer. The models have multiple "channels" which allow for a greater range of frequencies that sound can be processed in. Qualities like speech-enhancement help to filter conversation from unwanted background noise, making them perfect for social situations.
