PHONAK HEARING AIDS TECHNOLOGY
Phonak recognizes how important hearing is to enjoying all aspects of life; therefore, the company seeks to create easy-to-use and technologically advanced hearing aids and assistive listening systems, and/or devices(ALS/ALD) to help people find that enjoyment again.
Phonak names the products in their portfolio according to the style of hearing aid, for example, the latest behind the ear (BTE) product is called the Bolero V, the receiver in the canal (RIC) product is called the Audeo V and the custom-fit products are called Virto V. Each style/brand is available in a range of technology levels: Essential, Standard, Advanced and Premium. This wide variety of technology options equates to a variety of pricing levels for each branded model. Note – the RIC style is another name for the receiver in the ear (RITE) style.
Phonak’s pediatric hearing aid line is called Sky Q. This line of products comes in RIC and BTE styles, as well as super power options. The pediatric hearing aids are available in the widest variety of color options. The super power hearing aid designed for adults is the Naida Q. It is available in RIC and BTE styles. This device is also available in four different levels of technology. The Sky and Naida Q products are compatible with the Roger wireless microphone system and other accessories.
A tinnitus noise generator is part of the feature set for all Phonak hearing aids styles and technology levels. This tinnitus feature is meant for use under the guidance of a professional as part of a tinnitus therapy program.
In addition to an extensive line-up of hearing aids, Phonak offers other assistive technology to work with their hearing aids to improve hearing ability in a variety of situations. They have the Roger Easy Pen, Roger Clip-on Mic and Roger Receivers, a line of wireless accessories to improve conversations in noisy situations or over a distance. They also offer the Phonak TVLink II, which works in conjunction with ComPilot II or ComPilot Air II to stream television and other audio signals to your hearing aids. Phonak EasyCall II streams mobile phone calls to both hearing aids for ease of listening. The latest assistive listening device (ALD) products are compatible with the latest hearing aid models. If you are interested in purchasing an ALD to go with a legacy product, be sure to ask your hearing care professional which accessories are compatible with your hearing aids.
