Trusted, Premium Hearing Devices From Phonak

Phonak are considered to be one of the premium hearing aid manufacturers, and they consistently work to improve their technology. In our experience, customers are very rarely not impressed with the benefit that their solutions provide. Phonak is one of the primary hearing device manufacturers we use because we know that we can trust their quality and reliability. They deliver outstanding solutions for people with all types of hearing loss. They measure their success by the positive impact that their technologies have on people’s ability to communicate in noisy environments.

In late 2016 they launched their latest generation of hearing aid technology with the ‘Belong’ platform. This is their innovative new sound processing chip technology which replaced their previous ‘Venture’ chip. The initial introduction was their Audeo Belong Receiver In Canal hearing aid range. In 2017 they released the rest of the Belong range and they have also launched two new rechargeable hearing aids and a Titanium custom hearing aid. Phonak is one of the primary hearing aid brands we provide at our hearing aid centre in Worcester and our hearing aid centre in Stratford.

Meet The Brand New Marvel range from Phonak

Phonak Marvel hearing aids

Phonak introduced the Marvel in late 2018 to great acclaim. Initially, they introduced a range of Receiver In Canal Made For Any Phone hearing aids. However, in August 2019, they announced the launch of a range of BTE hearing aids on the Marvel platform. Marvel has truly been one of the most successful hearing aid ranges they have ever introduced. They seem to have captured the imagination of consumers perhaps like no other device. Marvel is offered in the usual four levels of technology, the Marvel 90, 70, 50 and 30.

Phonak Marvel Hearing Aid Prices

Phonak hearing aid prices range between £1100 to £2150 depending on technology level. Our outstanding care and service package remains the same no matter what technology is purchased.

Made For Any Phone

While most of the hearing aid brands went for Made For iPhone hearing aids, Phonak decided that they would go a different way with their mobile phone connectivity. They chose one that would give them a direct connection to any mobile phone. Phonak has introduced hearing aids that are able to connect to any Bluetooth enabled device, not just phones.

True Hands-Free Calling

The Marvel delivers true hands-free calling in stereo. You will hear your phone calls in both ears giving you a better chance at understanding what is being said. Hands-free means you don’t need to touch your phone. Your phone can be up to thirty feet away. You simply hit the button on your hearing aid to answer the call and speak away.

A New System, No Limits

The Marvel allows users to experience stereo streaming audio from any Bluetooth enabled device, that includes most mobile phones available, computers, even some modern TVs. Marvel users can have that audio streaming with the full benefits of Phonak’s ear to ear features (Binaural Voice Streaming Technology BVST for short). That all means an outstanding new hearing aid platform with no limitations.

Fully Featured Hearing Aids

As I said, these hearing aids aren’t de-featured in any way. They include all of the latest Phonak features including their much-celebrated ear to ear features. They also have a brand new sound management system called Autosense 3.0 which recognises and automatically adapts to precisely match more listening situations than ever before. Autosense 3.0 also classifies streamed signals and will adapt how it works to better help you to hear the way you should.

Multi-functional and Feature Rich Hearing Aids

These hearing devices are hugely multi-functional and feature-rich. The Marvel contains probably every single one of the current headline features in the hearing aid world, and they have even thrown in some new ones, here’s the quick list:

  • Stereo Bluetooth streaming: Stereo streaming from any Bluetooth enabled device, that means iPhone, iPad, laptops, computers, Macs, Android phones, Windows phones, hell any Bluetooth-enabled phone.
  • Real Hands-free calling in stereo: Like the Audeo B-direct, the Marvel offers true hands-free calling from Bluetooth-enabled phones and VOIP services like Skype, except, to both hearing aids.
  • TV Streaming: Marvel can stream directly from Bluetooth-enabled TVs, and can also stream from the Phonak TV Connector accessory.
  • Rechargeability: They say both Marvel rechargeables will deliver a full day of hearing aid use from a single charge.
  • Remote adjustments: Marvel hearing aids can be adjusted remotely by your hearing expert.
  • New App Eco-System: Brand new apps to make life easier and engage the consumer in the process.
  • RogerDirect: This is really fascinating, for the first time, users will be able to stream from Roger devices directly to their hearing aids.
  • Full Phonak Feature Set: The Marvel will offer full and up to date inter-ear features.

More Than Just Audio Connection

The Bluetooth connection is being used for more than just audio streaming. That same connection for data exchange between the mobile phone and the hearing aids. This ability offers much more benefits for consumers and professionals alike. The data exchange is the core of the new ability to remotely fine-tune the hearing aids in real-time and for the user to give real-time day to day feedback with the new Hearing Diary.

Phonak Remote Support

Remote Fine Tuning

The new Phonak remote fine-tuning system is excellent, a video calling system gives the same feeling of face to face interaction, just in a different way. While the remote support may not be for everyone, I think it will be welcomed by people who see it as a real alternative to in-clinic appointments

Speech To Text

They have also introduced a new speech to text app with the new products. The new app acts as a transcription system which allows users to read what is being said by the person on the other end of the phone. It works in real-time and thanks to hands-free phone calling you can carry on the conversation while you read the dialogue. The app will allow people with hearing loss extra help to understand people on their mobile phone.

RogerDirect Arrives

Phonak’s Roger system is the Gold Standard in FM assistive devices for people with hearing loss. There has been much talk about RogerDirect and now it has arrived. All existing Marvel hearing aids will be able to be upgraded by hearing care professionals so that the new RogerDirect™ system can be added to the hearing aids allowing Roger microphone equipment to stream directly to Marvel hearing aids without having to attach an external receiver. That is something special and it will provide an even better benefit for people in complex sound environments.

Versatile TV Streaming

Marvel TV Connector

While the Marvel hearing aids will connect directly to Bluetooth enabled TVs, Phonak has also introduced a new TV Streamer. The TV streamer allows low energy streaming offering great audio and reduced battery usage.

Virto Marvel Hearing Aids

Phonak have now introduced the full range of their new Virto M in the ear products. The range will include a Marvel Titanium, two Marvel CIC devices, one with a size 10 battery and the other with a size 312, a Bluetooth enabled In The Canal/Half Shell model powered by a 312 battery and the very much anticipated Virto Black, basically the same as the 312 In The Canal/Half Shell model but with a black case.

Only the Virto Black and the Virto 312 In The Canal/Half Shell device will have the full Marvel functionality including the amazing connectivity. The other devices will not have connectivity. They will be based on the same core Marvel technology.

The range will be available in the usual four levels of technology, the 90, 70, 50 and 30.

The Audeo range was the first part of the Marvel platform to be introduced. The Marvel Audeo family is made up of five hearing aids of which two are rechargeable. The smallest traditional Zinc Air battery size is the 312. The devices are available in four levels of hearing aid technology as you would expect from Phonak. For the first time ever, Phonak will make the rechargeable devices available at every level of technology.

Audeo Marvel R

The device is available in all levels of technology on the Marvel platform.

The device is available at four levels of technology.

 

Audeo Marvel 312 T

Audeo 312 t

The Audeo Marvel 312T is a small RIC device which uses a 312 battery, it is still very discreet and can be used with several receiver variations meaning it can cover a lot of hearing losses. This device has a telecoil and will connect directly to any Bluetooth enabled Mobile phone and will stream phone calls and audio in stereo.

Rocker Switch, Not Push Button

Phonak have also changed the push button on the devices, they now offer a rocker switch instead for more functionality.

 

Bolero Marvel Range

The Bolero Marvel range is the latest range of Behind The Ear hearing aids from Phonak. It consists of just two hearing aid models, The Bolero Marvel M and the Bolero Marvel PR. Both devices really only cover hearing losses up to moderate to severe. Phonak would usually introduce a larger range of Bolero devices including a device that would cover severe to profound hearing loss. This time, they haven’t, it may be that they will later, or possibly, it means that the Naida Marvel range is coming sooner rather than later.

Bolero Marvel M

Bolero Marvel M

The Bolero Marvel M is a pretty discrete mini BTE with a multi-functional button, not unlike the button used on the Audeo. The M can be fitted with a slim tube (which you can see above) or an ear hook for traditional tubing and ear mould. The M will cover hearing losses down to 75 dB in the low to 95 dB in the high frequencies. That, of course, depends on configuration, with the slim tube fitted, that reduces to 80 to 85 dB in the high frequencies.

The M has all of the features of the Marvel platform with a direct connection to any Bluetooth mobile phones and  Roger devices. However, the M does not have a telecoil onboard so a connection to a Loop System is out. The device will be available in the four levels of technology, the 90, the 70, the 50 and the 30

 

 

Bolero Marvel PR

Bolero M PR

The Bolero Marvel PR is slightly larger than the M, but it is still relatively discrete. It uses the same multi-functional button as the smaller M. The PR is a  lithium-ion powered rechargeable hearing aid can be fitted with a slim tube (which you can see above) or an ear hook for traditional tubing and ear mould. The PR will cover hearing losses down to 80 dB in the low to 100 dB in the high frequencies. That, of course, depends on configuration, with the slim tube fitted, that reduces to 70 in the low and 90 dB in the high frequencies.

The PR has all of the features of the Marvel platform with a direct connection to any Bluetooth mobile phones and  Roger devices. It also has a telecoil onboard so it can be used to connect to a Loop System. Phonak say that you will get a full day of use out of one charge and use time is similar to the Audeo. The device will be available in the four levels of technology, the 90, the 70, the 50 and the 30

More Phonak Hearing Aids

Phonak Audeo B Direct

Audeo B-Direct

The Audeo B-Direct is really a revolutionary hearing aid that changes wireless connection to a mobile phone forever. The Audeo B-Direct connects to any Bluetooth® enabled mobile phone, directly without a streamer. Even better, it offers true hands free calling. As it supports the classic Bluetooth protocol, it provides direct connectivity to cell phones – including AndroidTM, iPhone® and even classic cell phones – with no extra body-worn streaming device required.

True hands-free calling is now a reality

The hearing aids offer real hands-free voice calling. The wearer can answer or reject a phone call by simply pressing the push button on their hearing aid. The ringing of the phone is heard through the hearing aids and once the call is accepted, the conversation is instantly streamed. You don’t even need to pick up your phone. Your voice is picked up by the hearing aid’s intelligent microphone network and transmitted to the other caller similar to a wireless headset.

Phonak Virto B

Virto B

Phonak have now introduced the full range of their new Virto B in the ear products. They say that they are custom-made to perfectly fit in your ear, Phonak Virto B are the world’s first hearing aids with Biometric Calibration, which take your individual ear anatomy and hearing needs into account. That’s an interesting description.

They say that they will identify over 1600 biometric data points in and on your ear, and the unique calibration settings are calculated for each Virto B hearing aid. In this way, Virto B is able to more reliably sense where sound is coming from, thereby giving you access to better hearing performance.

What does that all mean? Well, we think that Phonak are the first ever hearing aid manufacturer to carefully map the outer ear to take advantage of its natural abilities. They say that the new process will deliver a 2dB signal to noise ratio improvement. Basically means it will make the signal (what you want to listen to) 2dB higher than the noise.

2dB doesn’t sound like much, but combined with all the other strategies that Phonak use it will be a marked improvement. Phonak Virto B is available in six models to match your hearing needs. It is also available in the usual four levels of technology, the 90, 70, 50 and 30.

Phonak Bolero Belong

Bolero Belong

With the launch of the new Bolero Belong platform of Behind The Ear hearing aids, Phonak have launched their anticipated lithium-ion rechargeable BTE, the Bolero B-PR. It is the first Lithium-ion rechargeable BTE to the market and the first rechargeable BTE for Phonak. They say that the battery pack will deliver 24 hours of hearing with one simple charge (expected results when fully charged, and up to 80 minutes wireless streaming time) which is in line with the performance of the Audeo B-R.

The P hearing aid style is quite a powerful aid and can be expected to be fitted to people with severe hearing loss. The device has a programme button, volume control and a telecoil onboard. The amplification output of this aid demands a lot of power, so Phonak must be very confident with the battery technology.

Phonak Audeo BR

Audeo B-R

Phonak have created the Audéo B-R to simplify your life, offering you a chance to free yourself from the hassles of changing batteries. They have introduced a groundbreaking built-in lithium-ion battery technology that will offer you 24 hours of better hearing between charges.

Ground Breaking Tech

Phonak rechargeable hearing aids are the first to feature a specifically designed built-in lithium-ion rechargeable battery that provides 24 hours of hearing with one simple charge. With 40% more power than conventional rechargeable batteries, lithium-ion is reliable and capable of supporting the superior technology and performance of Phonak rechargeable hearing aids. Now you can enjoy the freedom and confidence of knowing that your Phonak rechargeable hearing aids are conveniently charged and ready to take you through long days…and nights, if necessary.
