Phonak Hearing Aids
The Swiss manufacturer Phonak was founded in 1947 and has been committed to reconnecting people to their passions and loved ones with innovative hearing technology. Phonak has also been instrument in raising awareness and eliminating taboos about hearing loss, vowing not to rest until “wearing a hearing aid is as simple and routine as eyeglasses or contact lenses.” Along with their activism, Phonak has a long history of innovation, with the SuperFront hearing aid in 1978, AudioZoom multi-microphone technology in 1999, and SmartLink, a Bluetooth-compatible hearing aid introduced in 2003.
The Belong Platform
The Word’s First Smart Hearing Aid
With the Belong Platform, Phonak offers two new hearing aid models: the Audeo B and Audeo B-R. Audeo B and B-R are receiver-in-canal hearing aids, with design renovations based on consumer feedback. Audeo B-R is a rechargeable hearing aid that uses a lithium-ion battery solution and provides 24 hours of hearing on a single charge, making it the longest lasting rechargeable hearing aid on the quickest charge.
Audeo B is available in four performance levels, while Audeo B-R is available in three. Taking user feedback into consideration, Audeo B and B-R are sleeker, with more accessible push buttons and lights, new microphone positioning to improve the listening experience, and an IP rating of 68, which provides excellent protection from the infiltration of moisture and debris. Audeo B and B-R are designed to treat mild to severe hearing loss. For people with single-sided hearing loss, Phonak offers the Cros B, also powered by the Belong Platform.

Lyric – Truly Invisible Hearing Aids
Lyric is the first fully invisible hearing aid that can be worn up to four months without removal. The first of its kind, Lyric is known as a “contact lens for the ear” and may remain inserted in the ear canal throughout the day, even in the shower or the swimming pool. The Lyric must be inserted in the ear canal by an audiologist, where it sits near the eardrum. For people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss, the Lyric is a convenient and seamless hearing solution, delivering high-quality sound by working with the ear’s natural anatomy. Unlike other invisible hearing aids, the Lyric is designed to reduce background noise and to improve high-frequency sounds. When the battery nears the end of its life, your audiologist will remove the Lyric and replace it with a new one.
Phonak Styles and Models
Phonak’s three most popular models are the Audéo, Virto, and Bolero hearing aids, which are available in different power levels to meet varying degrees of hearing loss. Audéo is a receiver-in-canal hearing aid, Virto is a customizable in-the-ear hearing aid, and the Bolero is a behind-the-ear hearing aid. All three models reduce background noise to maximize sound quality, enhance speech recognition especially in challenging environments, assist wearers with hearing in cars and wind, and automatically select the best program settings depending on the environment.
The Sky B series of hearing aids is designed specifically for children and teenagers. These hearing aids are sturdily designed to withstand the active lifestyles of young people, and come with tamper proof battery doors. They are also water and dust resistant, and are compatible with wireless devices.
CROS B and CROS II
The CROS B and CROS II hearing aids are designed for single-sided deafness. It balances audio signals between the hearing ear with a microphone that picks up voices and sounds on the side of the non-hearing ear. CROS, which stands for Contralateral Routing of Signal,” wirelessly transmits these signals. For children with single-sided deafness, Phonak offers the Roger hearing aid.
