Digisystem was designed and developed by Comfort Audio AB of Sweden who are now wholly owned by Swiss company Sonova and operated under their Phonak brand. It was the world's first modular assistive hearing system to transmit using both digital sound processing and digital radio transmission with their own Secure Stream Technology (SST). This innovative assistive hearing product range of wireless radio aids puts the user in control. The Digisystem is a compatible family of transmitting microphones and receivers that work with any manufacturers hearing aids, cochlear implants and hearing aid streamers that have a Telecoil / Loop Setting or a Direct Audio Input (DAI) socket.
Their digital technology captures speech and sound with a microphone transmitter, then uses digital processing to improve the clarity of speech or sound and remove annoying background noise. The sound is then transmitted digitally using Digital Modulation (DM), crystal clear, with no time lag. The transmission is encrypted so that no one can eavesdrop on anyone using the system.
There is a choice of receivers DH10 Receiver with a Neckloop, for any hearing aid or cochlear implant that has a Telecoil / Loop Setting or DT20 Receiver for hearing aids, cochlear implant processors or hearing aid Streamers that have a Direct Audio Input (DAI).
The range of transmitting microphones allows the user to select the microphone or microphones to create their own personal Comfort Digisystem that provides them with the best assistive hearing system for their individual requirement whether at school, college, university, in the workplace or just to improve what they hear in everyday life.
