Panasonic Expands on Hearing Instrument Lineup

SECAUCUS, N.J., Dec. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Expanding on Panasonic's line of hearing instruments, Panasonic Healthcare Group today announced the launch of the Panasonic JZ Power WH-105JZ hearing instrument with binaural audio headset. 

A second generation of the JZ Series' WH-103JZ, the new JZ Power WH-105JZ, designed for mild to severe hearing loss, utilizes innovative technology to expand on hearing range as compared with previous generation models.  A palm-sized unit featuring an LCD screen and a stereo binaural headset (earphone with microphones) which is designed to comfortably fit into the ear canal and stay in place for long hours of wear, the new JZ Power provides ease-of-use in a simple, user-friendly design. 

Available in blue, black and silver, this digital hearing instrument features five channels and additional functions which aid in hearing capability including noise reduction, wind noise management, feedback management, L/R balance and Automatic Gain Control (AGC).  Additionally, slide power switch and volume control are easily accessible for individuals with dexterity challenges or impaired vision.  To create optimal sound in various listening settings, the Scene Selector Function allows for four fixed scene modes, standard, music, party and indoors.  The JZ Power includes a rechargeable battery that can easily be charged by placing the main unit in the charging cradle, or it can use commercial AAA alkaline batteries.

"Panasonic is committed to providing the best new hearing products to enhance the consumer lifestyle," said Yoshi Yuasa, Senior Vice President of Panasonic Corporation of North America.  "With the introduction of the JZ Power, Panasonic is ensuring our customers receive innovative technologies to create advanced hearing solutions to fit a wide variety of lifestyles."

Wright, Director of Sales, Panasonic Corporation of North America, Healthcare Group.  "With the new JZ Power Panasonic can help an even broader segment of the hearing impaired who are challenged by the difficulty of managing traditional hearing instruments."
