Phonak’s Sound Processing Capabilities
Full audio bandwidth bi-directionally and in real-time streaming allow Phonak hearing aids to deliver refined sound quality, which is enhanced by an AI processor with the capacity to identify and automatically adjust to your hearing environment as you move from one location to another.
A more natural, crisper sound clarity is among the benefits of limiting background noise, thanks to enhanced digital performance provided by Phonak’s sound processing innovations, which are also applied to integrated sound therapy features able to assist with tinnitus management.
Some Features of Phonak Hearing Aids
Phonak hearing aids come with Android and iPhone connectivity and Bluetooth compatibility as standard features, which provide for a seamless listening experience. Users are able to pair their hearing aids with up to eight Bluetooth-enabled devices and keep two of them connected simultaneously.
Many Phonak hearing aid models come with integrated sound therapy features, advanced battery charging capabilities, greater control over personalized sound quality, and multifunctionality. Remote support by using the myPhonak app also allows for direct access to the manufacturer and/or your hearing care provider for technical support, counseling, and programming without the need for an in-office appointment.

The Importance of Scheduling a Hearing Assessment
Because it is the beginning of identifying the type and severity of hearing loss in order to customize a plan of treatment or preventive measures, scheduling a hearing assessment is a critical step in receiving better hearing care.
Even when a measurable hearing loss is not detected during a hearing assessment, the results establish a baseline against which future deterioration can be measured.
To ensure your hearing health, do not delay having a hearing test. Take the first step on the journey to better hearing and a healthier life by scheduling a hearing assessment today.
