Phonak presents innovative new hearing solutions

Phonak announces the launch of two new hearing aids – the Phonak Bolero V and Phonak CROS II.

The new Phonak Bolero V is packed in a new aesthetically appealing design. As the already introduced Audéo V (RIC) product family it runs on AutoSense OS, the central brain of the new Phonak Venture hearing aids and therefore provides a seamless listening experience in every listening situation. The IP67 rated Phonak Bolero V is water resistant and dust tight for extra durability. Covering a wide range of hearing loss levels, the three new Phonak BTE models, available in four performance levels, now come with an integrated Tinnitus Balance noise generator and easily connect with the entire Phonak Wireless Communication Portfolio. Bolero V will be available with immediate effect. Phonak also introduces CROS II, the latest generation of Phonak CROS, aimed at helping people with single-sided deafness. With Phonak CROS II the brand launches the second generation of smart solutions for single-sided deafness.

Based on the latest Venture platform, Phonak CROS II wirelessly transmits sound from the unaidable ear to a Venture hearing aid worn on the better hearing ear. This allows people with single-sided deafness to hear speech from the side they could not hear from before. The new key feature of Phonak CROS II is StereoZoom. By focusing on a single voice in a crowd, it allows for improved speech understanding in noisy situations. The new fitting process for Phonak CROS II is as easy and intuitive as a normal binaural fit, and users can instantly experience the benefits of the CROS solution during the fitting session. The new solution will be available immediately.
