Volume and Program control
Simplicity is an important part of the Jaspa 3 experience. We believe a back-up is not a real back-up if there are lots of extra jobs required on the part of the wearer to use the device.
The Jaspa 3 is equipped with a simple toggle switch control on the device itself, which allows the user to easily decrease or increase the volume to suit their listening needs. The same toggle is used to change the program to suit various listening environments. Follow the instructions for use.
Jaspa 3 Programs
General listening in quiet settings. Program 1 is your start up setting and is best used for listening to one-on-one conversations at home, or listening to speech in relatively quiet environments.
Listening in noise. Program 2 will reduce background noise to enhance your clarity of speech in noisier settings such as cafes, restaurants, or large social gatherings.
High pitch cut. For those with a bass or low to mid frequency hearing loss, Program 3 increases the amplification for low and mid frequencies and reduces the volume of high frequency sounds. It can also be used to reduce high frequency environmental sounds such as noise from the kitchen, (plates and cutlery), and shrill or high frequency sounds such as running water and bird calls.
High frequency boost. For those with more significant levels of hearing loss, and specifically those with extensive high frequency hearing loss, program 4 increases the amplification of high frequency sounds. This program enhances and clarifies soft speech, children’s voices, and TV dialogue.

Don’t you need my hearing test?
It’s a great question. The Jaspa 3 is designed as a back-up digital hearing aid to suit a broad range of hearing loss and is not designed for customised programming. The amplification and power in the Jaspa 3 is suitable for those with mild to severe hearing loss, and access to the programs within the Jaspa 3 means it is also suitable for various configurations of hearing loss. To understand how the Jaspa 3 programs may assist you, use our interactive tool on the home page.
If you have never had a hearing test done before, we recommend you have a comprehensive hearing assessment done by a trained professional, such as an audiologist, to not only see if you are suitable or could benefit from a hearing aid, but also to assess whether there are any medical issues related to your hearing which need to be investigated further prior to utilising a hearing aid.
