Phonak EasyCall: Connecting any cell phone to your hearing aids

No compromise cell phone solution from Phonak allows users to connect any Bluetooth enabled cell phone to their hearing aids and have conversations streamed directly to both ears

Staefa, Switzerland (May 26, 2015) – Cell phones are one of the most important tools to live a mobile lifestyle. We love to work on the go, call our beloved ones on the way home and chat away with friends while in a train. Phonak EasyCall gives hearing aid users all they need to enjoy this lifestyle: Permanently attached to the cell phone, it transmits phone conversations directly to both ears – hassle free and in unmatched phone call quality. And what’s best: Phonak EasyCall connects any Phonak wireless hearing aid to any Bluetooth enabled cell phone. Combined with the latest hearing aid generation from Phonak, Audéo V or Bolero V, that offers easy operation and consumes up to 30% less battery when streaming, Phonak EasyCall brings more flexibility, quality of life and freedom than ever to hearing aid users.

“Phonak EasyCall is the flexible no compromise cell phone solution,” says Martin Grieder, Group Vice President at Phonak. “Phonak hearing aid users can simply keep their existing Bluetooth cell phone, attach Phonak EasyCall and be immediately ready to make and receive calls. The call will be automatically streamed to both hearing aids, with 30% less battery consumption. We think this is how easy a cell phone conversation should be for everyone today.”

Maximum flexibility
EasyCall connects to any Bluetooth enabled cell phone.

Hearing aid users can keep or choose the cell phone of their choice, even if it is a non-smartphone or an older model. If they want to connect their existing cell phone to their hearing aids, they can keep their existing settings and already purchased apps. 
  Phonak EasyCall is permanently attached to and constantly connected with the cell phone and is ready to make or receive a phone call whenever you are ready. It never gets lost or forgotten.

Unmatched sound quality

Phonak EasyCall is a cost effective solution that offers improved listening comfort and speech understanding by transmitting the caller’s voice directly to both hearing aids. Combined with the latest Phonak hearing aid generation that uses intelligent technology to block wind and filter background noise, it allows for unmatched sound quality.
