Hearing Aids, Unitron North 800 Hearing Devices

Unitron North Features

Unitron are one of our favourite hearing aid manufacturers and are a stalwart of the hearing aids we provide in Glasgow. We talked last time about the Pro technology level of the North platform, this time we would like to focus on the 800 level. 

Unitron North 800

The Unitron North 800 is the second to top technology level using the new North processor. It is still a high end hearing aid and it is well suited to people who need to hear in challenging environments.

This hearing aid technology level is available in three different RIC styles and the full range of traditional BTE and ITE styles which we will talk about later. 

Main Features

Soundnav With 6 Different Environments

The chip in the North 800 identifies six separate environmental types and adjusts itself automatically as you move between them, always keeping the main focus on speech. These environments are;

  • Conversations in quiet
  • Conversations in a crowd
  • Conversations in noise
  • General noise without speech present
  • Quiet
  • Music

Speechzone with Binaural spatial processing

When you are in a social environment with background noise present, the hearing aids work together and figure out what where the speech is coming from and they then automatically focus your hearing in that direction. This feature really delivers in those noisy environments. 

Pinna effect

The Pinna is the outside part of your ear and it helps you to hear better. Unitron use the Pinna effect technology to recreate the natural effects of sounds being collected by the shape of your ear to present you with the most natural sound possible.

Sound Conductor

Sound Conductor is a speech clarifying feature that aims to make speech sounds always as clear as possible but without compromising on sound quality so that they are kept as natural as possible. It automatically makes adjustments for understanding speech during conversations, providing comfort and awareness in quiet and noisy environments all while maintaining natural sound quality

Multiband adaptive directional microphone

Improves speech understanding in noise by focusing on sounds in front of you and tracking and suppressing multiple background noise sources.


The hearing aid acts immediately if it detects a loud or jarring sound to reduce it to a comfortable level.

Binaural Phone

When you answer the phone, the hearing aid streams the sound to both ears without the use of an extra accessory so you can hear the conversation in stereo.

Water Resistant

Water and dust resistant to IP57 standards or better. Absolutely not waterproof,

Other features

The North 800 has a lot of other features which would stretch this article to be a bit on the long side so we have summarised here with a list. Log it all, Flex system, Natural sound balance, Duo-link, datalogging, Easy-t, Feedback manager, Tinnitus masker, Windcontrol. If you need further details then feel free to email or call us.

Hearing Aid Styles

Unitron Stride & Moxi Dura/Fit/Kiss Hearing Aids

Along with the launch of the North platform, Unitron also introduced a new geneneration of its popular receiver-in-canal (RIC) Moxi™ hearing instruments. The all-new Moxi Fit™ has a fluid new look, giving users the perfect combination of style and functionality.

As we said, the Moxi RIC hearing aids comes in three distinct styles.

  • Moxi Fit The "Fit" is only slightly larger than the Kiss, it includes both a push button and onboard telecoil which isn't often available on smaller RIC aids. 
  • Moxi Kiss The "Kiss" is the slimmest and most discrete of the RIC options from UNitron, it is an exceptionally discreet option if you are not interested in the extra features which add size to the Moxi Fit and Moxi Dura.
  • Moxi Dura The "Dura" is the most powerful of the three RIC devices available,  it is slightly larger to provide the amplification needed. If you are looking for a discreet Moxi solution but have a severe to profound hearing loss then this is the device for you.

The Stride hearing aids come in two BTE versions, and six custom ITE hearing aid types. 

  • Stride P The new wireless 13 battery BTE pairs stylish design with dual controls
  • Stride Dura moisture resistance and durability, without sacrificing style
  • Stride Full shell The largest of the custom devices with dual microphones
  • Stride Canal/Half Shell Half Canal hearing device with dual microphones
  • Stride Mini Canal Directional  Discreet custom device with dual microphones
  • Stride Mini Canal Discreet device but with only one microphone
  • Stride CIC  Discreet wireless hearing aid device
  • Stride IIC The smallest hearing aid device available, truly invisible but with no wireless hardware.
