Phonak Hearing Aid Models, Prices, & Reviews
Popular Phonak Hearing Aid Models
Our most popular Phonak hearing aids include the new Audéo M, rechargeable Audéo MR, and custom in-the-ear Virto B models. Before learning more about these hearing aids, you may want to know that each one comes in four performance levels: Essential, Standard, Advanced, and Premium. In most cases, you can identify the performance level of Phonak hearing aids by the model number included in their name (A higher model number indicates a higher performance level). For example, Audéo M90 represents the Premium level of Audéo M hearing aids, while Audéo M30 represents the Essential level.
Stepping up from one performance level to the next generally increases the number of features or programs to improve sound quality, comfort, or speech understanding in specific listening situations. For instance, all Audéo M hearing aids include programs for calm situations or speech in noise, but only the Premium level (Audéo M90) includes programs tuned specifically for speech in wind noise. The difference between Phonak hearing aid performance levels is not just about additional programs. Higher performance levels may also include a more sophisticated version of features also found at the Essential level. Which Phonak hearing aids should you choose? This is a matter of individual hearing needs and personal preference. While discreet appearance tops the priority list for some people, Bluetooth phone connectivity matters more to others. In general, the more specific or challenging hearing needs you have, the more you may want to consider choosing advanced hearing aids. With a wide range of features and options, and with multiple hearing aid styles designed for any level of hearing loss, Phonak offers something for nearly everyone. You can expect excellent sound quality, great reliability, and a refined fit and finish across the Phonak product range.

Audéo™ MarvelThe best of modern hearing aids, like Audéo™ Marvel, take the experience of wearing hearing aids to a new level. No longer does choosing a hearing aid revolve around the hearing aids alone. Now, it’s the sum of the parts, the total package, the whole experience of using them that matters. Audéo™ Marvel bring an experience that focuses on clear, rich sound, high-quality wireless connectivity, smart apps, and the added convenience of optional rechargeable batteries.
Audéo™ Marvel, or Audéo™ M for short, are the first Phonak hearing aids released on the new Marvel platform. Featuring AutoSense OS 3.0 sound processing, they introduce a few new automatic programs, so they sound great in a wide variety of situations.
With Bluetooth connectivity for Android and Apple iOS mobile devices, Audéo™ M deliver hands-free phone use in a more refined and battery-saving implementation than their Audéo™ B Direct predecessor. Even better, Audéo™ M are the industry’s first hearing aids that can recognize speech and music streaming inputs, optimizing sound quality automatically. In contrast, other hearing aids put an automatic classifier to work only for sounds picked up by the microphones, and not for wireless streaming. Audeo Marvel hearing aids are also available with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, in the Audeo MR model.
- You want a true hands-free phone solution for direct streaming from Android and Apple iOS mobile devices.
- You want to connect to Bluetooth audio sources other than a sparkling, new smartphone.
- You would appreciate real-time captioning on your mobile device, with the Phonak MyCall-to-Text app.
Virto™ BVirto B are the world’s first hearing aids with Biometric Calibration. As part of the Belong family, they share the fully automatic functionality of Autosense OS with their Audéo B siblings. The most notable difference is that Virto B hearing aids are worn in the ear canal rather than behind the ear. They must be custom made in the shape of your ear to fit comfortably and work effectively. This means you will need to visit your local ZipHearing partner for ear impressions before Phonak can build a hearing aid just for you. Building the hearing aid is only part of the customization process, because Phonak also fine tunes the listening programs, based on the size and shape of your ear (Yes, really) - a process Phonak calls “biometric calibration”. Why should this matter? The answer has to do with how sound waves reflect off the ear toward the hearing aid microphones. Subtle differences between ears of different sizes and shapes can degrade the performance of directional microphones in canal-style hearing aids. Since directional microphones are one of the most important features for improving speech understanding in background noise, calibrating the hearing aids for individual listeners results in better hearing performance compared to uncalibrated hearing aids. Virto B is available in six models and four performance levels in a variety of styles with or without a volume control. Suitable for mild to severe hearing loss or up to profound hearing loss, with some models.
- You are looking for in-canal hearing aids with top-notch automatic hearing performance
- You want to enjoy Bluetooth wireless connectivity and prefer in-ear hearing aids compared to other styles
Virto™ B TitaniumThis hearing aid doesn’t just have titanium in its name. It is actually made of the precious metal. Who would want a titanium hearing aid? Anyone who wants super discreet, durable invisible-style hearing aids. This hearing aid’s ultra-thin titanium shell is 50% thinner than the acrylic and other materials used to build other custom hearing aids. This makes it possible for the Titanium model fit in tighter spaces, such as small and winding ear canals. Having such a thin shell also leaves more room for an air vent, meaning Titanium hearing aids may allow for better air circulation in your ear canal, which helps your own voice sound natural, and can improve sound quality.
In terms of what is on the inside of the hearing aid, Virto B Titanium has the same Autosense OS electronics as performance, Virto B Titanium is equivalent to its Virto B counterpart, just smaller. As far as controlling the Virto B Titanium, it may be ordered with a push-button, allowing wearers to control the hearing aid's volume. If it is determined there is no room for a push-button on the device (because it's so small), Phonak will supply a small metal keychain-like wand, called the “MiniControl” which allows a user to change the volume by simply raising the wand to the hearing aid, which will then emit a sound (audible only to the user), indicating the volume has successfully changed. Virto B titanium comes in two performance levels, Advanced and Premium.
- You want the smallest and lightest invisible hearing hearing aids, without sacrificing hearing performance.
- You prefer invisible hearing aids, but you’ve been told your ear canals are too small, or you have had difficulty getting invisible hearing aids to fit comfortably (and you’re willing to try again)
Phonak Hearing Aid Reviews
I've only been wearing them for two weeks, so I'm sure part of my review is due to the adjustment period and "rewiring" my brain. Pros: Quite comfortable... as the day progresses I often forget I'm wearing them. High frequency response is much better/clearer; hearing conversations, music, seminars on the web, etc. Ease of use, rechargeable, Bluetooth capabilities, small "footprint", versatility. Cons: Conversations in a loud environment (restaurant, social engagement) are still a bit difficult, but that may be due to having the 70R's instead of the 90R's Overall, I'm pleased with the investment and they have improved my quality of life.
My Phonak Audéo Marvel hearing aids have already changed my life---I've only been wearing them for two days but I can feel the tension of straining to hear for the past twenty years (even with the most advanced hearing aids that were available in that time) melting away. The sound quality is amazing and after spending most of my life carrying batteries around everywhere and having them die at inconvenient moments, the rechargeable model is revolutionary. I have also been streaming audio a lot and it's seamless and high quality.
Everything has been wonderful and the transition has really been seemless! I have not had any trouble using them, and my Hearing specialist in Clarkston GA has been wonderful. Great experience using ZipHearing.
The sound quality is good, very good but other aspects of these hearing devices are not so good. As I said the sound quality is good. I've tried the Starkey Livios as well and the sound quality of these are better. But the Livios app gives you remaining battery life expectancy, even if it is an estimate. Livios also allow you to create custom programs, albeit very very slow to switch between custom programs. With these you have to have your provider creat new programs and it is limited to 3 programs. Finally the Bluetooth is so weak that if you have your phone in your back pocket you can't stream to your aids.
This is my first hearing aid so I don’t have anything for comparison. Sound quality is very good and have been working with my audiologist to adjust them for my hearing loss.
Bluetooth functionality for phone calls and streaming is very helpful. However I am very disappointed with the connectivity or lack of connectivity to the Remote app. I have had to delete the app and reinstall it a number of times in the 2 weeks I have had these hearing aids. Many times the app just doesn’t connect and won’t stay connected to my iPhone X. It also appears that the hearing aids can only be connected to 1 device at a time. So can’t be connected to iPhone and iPad at same time. Have to disconnect from one or the other. Very disappointing for modern technology!!
The sound quality is great. I have 50% hearing loss but the nerve is working 100% so it has changed my life greatly. Thank you for a hearing aid that is rechargeable. No batteries to mess with. I tried two different tips on the hearing aid and found out that the smaller tip fit better in my ear and gave better sound. I give it a 5 star rating.
I really like my new Phonak hearing aids. They have great clarity and the multi-purpose functions are something I am getting used to relying on, ZIP hearing made the purchase easy and quick. I was very pleased and it was a good shopping experience and saved me over 2K$. The local provider that they reamed me up with was professional and thorough.
Fantastic sound quality and ease of use. No need to fiddle with programs or volume. These are effective set-and-forget devices. Only two negative comments. One of these devices whistles whenever anything is close to my right ear which needs more amplification than my left ear. Bluetooth phone calls in a car sound fine, but the microphone picks up too much noise. I remove these devices to use a standard bluetooth earpiece whenever I am in a car without its own Bluetooth option.
These new Phonak Audeo Marvel 90s are amazing! As a long-term hearing aid wearer, I am blown away by the clarity of both speech and music with these devices, Their ability to automatically adjust to multiple listening situations is fantastic. The bluetooth feature works seamlessly when paired with your choice of bluetooth devices. The aids are super comfortable to wear and fit close to natural ear curve making them practically invisible. I compared these aids to other high-end aids as well as the brand I was currently wearing before purchasing. I couldn't be more pleased with my choice to go with the Marvel 90s.
I am super pleased with my Phonak Audeo B50 + CROS hearing aides - no problem at all adjusting! Grateful for the discount and the free batteries! Very easy to adjust volume, no static. So nice to be able to hear what is said in my left ear without having to turn my head. The CROS is just what I needed since I essentially do not hear out of my left ear.
