Panasonic Healthcare Group has announced the launch of a new product – JZ Power WH-105JZ for people with poor hearing power. The device is designed for patients who face hearing problems ranging from mild to severe. This hearing instrument comes with a headphone and a microphone attached to it. It has a very simple user interface that can be easily operated by anyone. This product is out in the market since December 1.
Senior Vice President of Panasonic Corporation of North America, Yoshi Yuasa, said, "Panasonic is committed to providing the best new hearing products to enhance the consumer lifestyle. With the introduction of the JZ Power, Panasonic is ensuring our customers receive innovative technologies to create advanced hearing solutions to fit a wide variety of lifestyles."
Panasonic JZ Power WH-105JZ is almost the size of a palm and it is equipped with a small LCD screen. You can choose from three different colors – black, silver, and blue. The instrument is loaded with features like noise reduction(to help reduce the sound of surroundings) and wind noise management (to control the sound of the wind). Another feature, feedback management helps patients hear soft sounds with more audibility without any feedback (Whistling). Another important feature is Automatic Gain Control (AGC) for stabilizing high volume and making low volume sound more clear. It also facilitates Left-Right hearing balance by adjusting the volume level of both sides of the earphones.
In addition, Panasonic JZ Power WH-105JZ comes with a special feature called Scene Selector Function. This feature allows the patient to choose from four different scene modes – Standard, Indoors, Music, and Party. Panasonic JZ Power WH-105JZ comes with a rechargeable battery. You can also use the AAA alkaline batteries. Panasonic has made this hearing instrument in such a way that all the features are easily accessible and operable by physically-challenged people.
