I should have seen you much earlier..

Just to say a simple, thank you to both of you, for making me hear again.

It is now nine months since you fitted me with a Phonak hearing aid and I am happy and grateful to you for making things possible. You have also been kind and understanding which helped a lot. (I should have seen you much earlier!)"

Virto B-Titanium Invisible Hearing Aids

As part of a raft of introductions in 2017, Phonak announced that they were introducing a new Virto hearing aid type as part of their Virto Belong range. The device is groundbreaking, it is the first hearing aid device to use medical grade titanium to form the custom shell. They say that they have used the properties of the metal to ensure that they can offer discreet custom hearing aids to more people than ever before possible.

The Technology Levels

  • Phonak Virto B-90 Titanium - Premium: a vast array of advanced features. 20 frequency channels
  • Phonak Virto B-70 Titanium - Advanced: but less automatics and speech focus than above. 16 frequency channels

Virto B-Titanium

A Titanium Shell

The named the hearing aid as the Virto B-Titanium and said it will be the most discreet in ear device they have ever made. It is a fascinating device that uses titanium for the shell instead of the usual hard acrylic. This is the first time that titanium has been used in the manufacture of a custom hearing aid.

Super discreet

Virto B-Titanium is the smallest Phonak in-the-ear hearing aid ever! It is for all intent and purpose an invisible hearing aid device. 

Half as Thin

Using titanium allows for a shell that’s half as thin as traditional custom shells. This will result in a deep, comfortable fit. Phonak say that the overall size is reduced significantly, thus increasing invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) fit rate by 64%. That simply means that more people than ever will be physically suitable for their latest invisible hearing aid. 

Three Levels of Receiver

The device comes available with three levels of receiver which allows it to cover even more hearing losses than ever before. Because of the use of Titanium, it also allows for bigger vents in their hearing aids which means less occlussion problems for people with good low frequency hearing.

Fully automatic

Virto B-Titanium features AutoSense OS™. It adapts to every sound environment automatically for excellent hearing performance everywhere. There will be no need to manually adjust the hearing aids. Although, they can come with an optional push button for just that. 

Technology Levels

The Virto B-Titanium will only be available in the B90 and the B70 levels of technology. Anyone looking for something that isn't as advanced will need to look to the Virto Venture which will remain available for a while.

Will Fit More People Than Ever

The material is exceptionally strong, which allows Phonak to make the shell much thinner than ever before with even more strength. This combined with new component design allows them to deliver an invisible hearing device that they say will fit 68% more ears. 

The deep position in the ear canal of the device will allow the hearing aid to use the natural shape of the ear to funnel sound to the microphone. This strategy has always proved to deliver excellent directional hearing.

Bolero Belong Hearing Devices

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.

Phonak Bolero Belong P-R Rechargeable behind the ear hearing aid

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.

In line with the Audeo Belong, the range will run on the new improved AutoSense OS and will come in the usual four levels of technology. However, the new rechargeable option will not be available in the lowest level of technology.

Audeo Belong Hearing Devices

Audeo Belong rechargeable hearing aidThe Audeo Belong Receiver In Canal hearing device range is the first Phonak hearing device range with a rechargeable option. This in itself is quite an amazing innovation and a new direction for them. However there is much more that is new in this range than just that, the Belong comes with an upgraded operating system, the latest version of Phonak's SoundRecover2 and new microphones and programme buttons.

The range uses the existing Venture chipset and is available in four technology levels, the 90, the 70, the 50 and the 30, although the rechargeable option is not available in the 30 level of technology.

New Autosense System

The operating system in the Belong range is an updated version of Phonak's Autosense OS. They have improved the system with new settings that manage how the system works. Phonak's continued research on AutoSense OS gave them the opportunity to make it even better.

They have tweaked the operating system, changing how the hearing aids respond to changes in the sound environment. They say that these changes deliver even better speech intelligibility across the different settings.

The Phonak Audeo Belong Range
