A New Own Voice Processing System for Optimizing Communication
Erik Harry Høydal, MSc
The new Signia Nx hearing aids contain Own Voice Processing (OVP™) technology designed to identify when the wearer is speaking. In this way, OVP can employ dual processing for either speech or own-voice conditions. The system simply adjusts gain when the wearer is speaking, but maintains the prescribed amplification when he or she isn’t speaking, avoiding compromises to amplification, audibility, and noise reduction algorithms.
