Software features

Phonak Target features were created to meet the needs of audiologists by providing tools you’d expect as well as unique functions that simplify the fitting process.

This is a mechanical vent that can be opened or closed, based on the classified sound environment or signal, giving your clients either an open or closed fitting when they need it.

  • Ability to modify the ActiveVent status in the AutoSense OS programs, streaming programs, or manual programs not linked to AutoSense OS
  • Compatible with Phonak rechargeable Lumity and Paradise hearing aids

Tap control enables patients to pause or resume streaming, accept, or end a phone call, and activate a voice assistant with a simple double-tap.

  • Customisable to meet client’s dexterity needs and sensitivity preferences
  • Provides more engagement opportunities during the counseling process

The Phonak Naída™ Link M and Phonak Sky™ Link M can be fit in a bimodal configuration with an Advanced Bionics cochlear implant sound processor. The Link M allows the client to have binaural functions with the cochlear implant, including volume control, program structure, and streaming.

APD 2.0 is the processing algorithm in Phonak Lumity hearing aids that was designed to balance their audibility, loudness, and sound quality.

APD 2.0 updates:
  • Adaptive compression speed
  • Linearized high-level gain
  • New pre-calculation for mild-to-moderate hearing losses

Feedback threshold overtuning provides you with more control and flexibility to achieve the desired high frequency gain without having to run a feedback test.

Offers the ability to change the performance levels for Phonak hearing aids, which can help address client needs from the very first visit or during repairs.

AudiogramDirect can be used as part of the fitting process to test clients’ hearing directly through their hearing aids. It’s designed to check a client’s hearing during a follow-up session but can also provide a starting point for a new first fitting remotely.
