For close to half a century, Unitron has designed and manufactured hearing aids. Their headquarters were based in Canada, but when Sonova purchased the company, the research facility remained in Canada while the production moved to Switzerland. As both Unitron and Phonak belong to the Sonova Group, Unitron is known in the hearing industry as the baby brother to Phonak, but still fiercely independent and offer significantly different devices. The Australian factory is based in Baulkham Hills, Sydney
Unitron caters for lower-priced value devices which always provide lots of features.
Unitron’s motto is Hearing Matters, and this pervades all their development of hearing devices.
Unitron Discover Next
Unitron has recently launched ‘Discover Next’, a new platform that promises an enhanced listening experience for hearing aid clients. Discover Next has been developed by Unitron to give hearing aids the ability to pick up on emotion in sounds and speech. The sound technology is said to be able to identify and convey more than just sounds and words. This new technology has helped our clients hear the subtle nuances of speech by enabling a better understanding of not only who is talking, but better understand the meaning of speech. Discover Next identifies where the voices are coming from, what intonation they’re using, and what their underlying emotions are. The technology works whether the client is in a noisy environment or conversing with soft-spoken people.
Discover Next is powered by Unitron’s SoundCore™ technology which provides clear speech, reduced noise, and overall sound quality that’s comfortably balanced in any environment. The right and left ear each receive a slightly different frequency tone, yet the brain perceives these as a single tone. To combat this, SoundCore™ uses binaural cues (cues from both ears) to know where speech is coming from and enhances it beyond what traditional hearing devices are designed to do.
Discover Next is available in Unitron’s new stylish hearing aids and accessories, including lithium-ion rechargeable options.

Their devices are not only hands-free, meaning patients don’t even have to touch their phone, callers are automatically transferred through the mobile but they also have rechargeable models available.
