Hearing aid users are very clear about what they expect from a hearing aid: Performance in different listening environments. A seamless listening experience through easy operation. Convenient phone use and as little interaction as possible. Based on these insights, Phonak has developed the next generation RIC hearing aid family: Phonak Audéo V, powered by a new chip technology that offers twice the processing power while reducing battery consumption up to 30% is available in four new styles and in four performance levels.
“Clear speech understanding in daily life situations: This is what people with hearing loss expect from a hearing solution. As simple as it may be in quiet surroundings, as challenging it still is on the move or in noisy locations”, says Martin Grieder, Group Vice President Phonak. “This is where we have put the focus in developing our new platform and our lastest generation of hearing aids. Whether in the car, on the phone or in a restaurant: The new Audéo V RIC hearing aids offer precise performance all while seamlessly adapting from one soundscape to another.”
A seamless listenting experience
The Phonak Audéo V hearing aid family runs on AutoSense OS, the “central brain” of the new Phonak hearing aids. It captures and analyzes incoming sound and can draw on over 200 settings to match the sound environment exactly and to seamlessly provide the best setting for that environment – all without requiring any manual interaction.
Discussions in a noisy car environment while driving to work? Audéo V reduces broadband noise to create a stable listening environment (Speech in Car program). Listening to music in a concert hall or in the living room in the evening? Audéo V provides an extended dynamic range, slow compression speed and increased gain for a richer music experience (Music program). A chat with friends in a crowded café on the weekend?
