The Siemens Aquaris Hearing Aid Is Water-Proof

Posted Jan 12, 2013

Siemens recently announced a new hearing aid called the Aquaris.  The Aquaris has an IP68 rating for continuous submersion underwater to 3 feet.  The Aquaris is also dust- and shock-proof.  The Siemens Aquaris also supports Bluetooth so that people that wear it can listen to music on smartphones and other devices underwater.  When the Aquaris is underwater, it does not compromise on the sound either.  Aquaris has a high-definition of sound with 48 channels and a high frequency resolution.  The frequency range is 12 kHz.  You will need to consult with a physician or otolaryngologist to find out if this device is for you.
