A Swiss company, Phonak was founded in 1947 in Zurich, Switzerland. As with other leading hearing aid manufacturers, researchers at Phonak are consistently working towards improving the listening experience for its users as well as ease of use and connectivity to Bluetooth devices to improve hearing in a variety of different listening situations.
Phonak provides excellent solutions for our patients with severe-to-profound hearing losses with their power hearing aids, offering among the most powerful hearing aids available today. Phonak also offers exceptional support for connection with FM systems. FM systems be used in conjunction with many of their hearing aids to help improve understanding of speech in noisy environments and where the speaker is far away, such as listening to a speaker in a large auditorium. For further information on FM systems and other assistive listening devices please click here.
While almost all hearing aid manufacturers now offer rechargeable hearing aids, Phonak offers a rechargeable hearing aid that contains a built-in lithium-ion battery. Patients now no longer have to worry about replacing batteries and can instead simply insert their hearing aids into a charging station at the end of the day, as you would a cellular phone.
As with Widex, Phonak offers a CROS and BiCROS solution and as with most other hearing aid manufacturers, many Phonak hearing aids are able to connect directly to iPhones. However, they can also connect directly to Android phones as well!
