Phonak hearing aids

The Phonak programmable hearing aids are available in behind- the-ear and in-the-ear versions. The Phonak programmable hearing aids are delivered with a remote control, which allows the user access to three memories (one for "quiet" listening; another for "noisy" listening and still another for even more difficult listening situations). In addition, the remote permits the user to activate a second microphone on the behind-the-ear hearing aid, which significantly reduces the effects of noise coming from behind the user. This hearing aid has been shown to be one of the most successful hearing aids in reducing the effects of background noise. Shortly, our Division will be completing field trials on the in-the-ear version containing the second microphone.
