  • Provides superior sound quality for streamed media*2
  • Intelligently controlled by AutoSense OS 5.0

Performance and comfort together like never before

Lumity features the revolutionary new ActiveVent Receiver -- a hearing aid speaker that combines comfort and hearing performance like never before. ActiveVent attaches to your Audéo Lumity rechargeable hearing aids. It blocks out noise in loud environments to optimize hearing in noisy places while providing you with a comfortable and natural listening experience in quiet.

How does ActiveVent work?


ActiveVent incorporates a built-in vent in combination with a small disc that is moved between two positions:  open and closed. A reassuring click signals that the disc has changed position.

When the disc is in the open position, environmental sound is able to pass through and thus provide listening comfort, naturalness of own-voice and awareness of environmental sounds.1


In challenging listening situations, or when streaming media, the disc moves to the closed position, blocking out environmental sound directly entering the ear, thus increasing focus on speech in front or streaming content. All this is intelligently and automatically controlled by AutoSense OS 5.0.
