    -  No longer willing to just focus on ears, Siemens Hearing Instruments
    focuses on personalities with an array of personalized products  -
    

    TORONTO, Jan. 23 /CNW/ - In an effort to better serve Canada's growing
community of baby boomers and the hard-of-hearing community, Siemens Hearing
Instruments - a division of Siemens Canada Limited and a leading manufacturer
of hearing instruments - has taken on a whole new approach. No longer content
to simply design the best hearing instruments for ears, Siemens is designing
the best hearing instruments for different people with different needs,
lifestyles and requirements.
    By listening to the feedback of Canadians and understanding that not all
hearing instruments fit everyone, Siemens has developed a wide array of new
products designed with individuals in mind, now available across the country
through a licensed audiologist or hearing care provider. With something for
everyone, there's Pure(R) for the person looking for something discreet;
Vibe(TM) is for those who want their hearing instrument to make a fashion
statement; Motion(TM) is for those who lead an active lifestyle; Life is
smaller than most hearing instruments and light, sleek and sophisticated;
Siemens Explorer(TM)500 is designed for children, and technology such as
Tek(TM) wirelessly connects hearing instruments directly to today's latest
technology, including cell phones and MP3 players.
    For more than 100 years Siemens has dedicated itself to helping people
hear better. Now they're taking it one step further by offering hearing
instruments that not only help people hear better, but live better.
