Phonak Hearing Aid Models, Prices, & Reviews
Popular Phonak Hearing Aid Models
Our most popular Phonak hearing aids include the new Audéo Marvel, rechargeable Audéo Marvel, 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. We are seeing incredible demand for Marvel hearing aids with our customers reporting high levels of satisfaction with them.
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
For the most part they are wonderful. Sometimes the sound seems to be somewhat ”tinny” but it seems they are not automatically adjusting to the sound volume and I have to do a manual adjustment. Having said that I would happily recommend them to everyone. I am most happy with them in group conversation especially when discussing business situations. Using them as Bluetooth to my cell phone does not always work as well as I would like. Several people have told me that the sound is scratchy and difficult to understand what I am saying yet I am still very satisfied with them.
I'm hearing things I haven't heard in many years. When I walked into my house I heard that my sliding glass door had bad bearings in it. Walked outside and heard birds chirping gravel crushing under my feet my dogs tags jingling around her neck and I may be able to hear bugs passing gas. I may need to have them turned down a little to make them not so tinny sounding but I made the doctor turn them up under his disapproval . I not to sure about the sound quality because I haven't herd these sounds in 25 years or more. It will be interesting to talk to my wife who's on a vacation trip and does not know about my Phonak's.
These are my first ever hearing aids and I have been wearing for only two weeks now. I find them reasonably comfortable and no issues so far. Hearing provider has them set at 70% for initial try and will be going back next week for evaluation and upping the sensitivity level. Love the blue tooth integration with my Android smart phone and the hands free phone integration. . Music streaming while on daily walks is quite nice. These hearing aids automatically adapt to various background environments quite well with no program selection required by me. The rechargeable battery feature is excellent. I wear the aids all day long and have yet seen the battery level below 50% at the end of the day.These three features are what led me to select these Phonak high end devices. Most noticeable hearing improvement is now hearing a lot more high frequency sounds like birds singing, the rustling of paper and even running water.
Just starting second week with my new Phonak Marvel hearing aids , replacing previous Version of Phonak. Sound quality is improved and use in restaurants and crowded places improved also. Bluetooth capability with cell phone and TV also better. Overall, I am happy with new features and clarity . I am waiting for a chance to use the coil program but have not had the opportunity yet. I had my previous Phonak hearing aids for about 4 years and I was rather pleased with them but so far the new ones seem to be much better. I am going to continue with my trial period but pretty sure I will choose to keep the new ones .
Hearing Aids are great so far. They are what I expected. Easy to work with. Natural sounds. The key was the feedback test and tuning to my actual prescription. Streaming to Android Pixel 2 is awesome, Hands free call reception is good. Simple app good for volume, balance and battery state. Wish they could use TV Bluetooth streaming but do not.
Heading aids are great sound , very comfortable, price is very reasonable . I like them and amazing how the auto programmers work .. my hearing center was very nice and easy to deal with . He help me everything I need to know
Great sound. The Bluetooth is wonderful! They work great in noisy situations. They are very comfortable. They have changed some of the ways I am able to interact with others. Eating out is much more enjoyable. I now hear some bird sounds that I had not heard before. They ar much easier to manipulate than I anticipated.
The sound quality is excellent in my opinion. These units are very well made, and comfortable to wear; excellent battery life. These units have given me a better mental Attitude. I now can hear the leaves Russell on the trees when I go outside,;I now can hear the TV, and understand what is being said with out the volume being sky high. I can even here the key clicks on my cell phone when texting etc. Last but not least the remote apt. Is great! What a wonderful finishing touch to a great Product. “Life is really on” with these phonak hearing aids.
I used to have lots of problems hearing in noisy places or when people were talking softly. Not anymore with my new hearing aids. I can now hear in restaurants, family dinners and church. Love that they are rechargeable so I don't have to worry about batteries anymore. Didn't think it would be worth it and make this much difference but I love my new hearing aids!
This is my first set of hearing aids, and there is definitely a difference between normal hearing and that which you experience through hearing aids. That is my biggest challenge. It feels like there is a constant echo, akin to what you might hear speaking through a microphone. I am still trying to get used to that. It is most prevalent when I hear myself speaking. I purchased Phonak Audeo Marvel 70R aids. I really like the rechargeable feature. There was only one time it did not recharge, and it was because I did not plug it in properly. The charge lasts all day- no complaints whatsoever. And it is fully charged rapidly. The Bluetooth connection with my iPhone 8+ is terrific. I can hear and answer calls directly through my aids, and I am also alerted to text messages that are received. This is very convenient especially when I am driving, or when my phone is in another room. The people with whom I have spoken over the phone through my aids have not experienced any difficulty understanding me, even when the phone was not nearby. There is an app called Phonak Remote through which you can make some adjustments to the sound levels. There is one thing wrong with this app I have noticed so far. In the spot where you have to select the function you are trying to manipulate, you have to choose via an "X" to select. There is no prior instruction to that effect. You have to figure it out for yourself. This is not user friendly to US customers, since "X" generally signifies to "exit" a function, not select it, in standard operating systems and apps. In general, the app does not seem very effective or efficient to me. I thought it would allow a lot more adjustments than it does, based on the marketing pamphlets that I reviewed prior to my decision to purchase the aids. I have mild to moderate hearing loss, and I am still working with my specialist to adjust the aids to best suit my needs. The aids have a feature called automatic acclimatization, which can be set to upgrade the amplification on a scheduled basis. Each day, your aids automatically adjust a little more to be closer to your target range, without having to visit the specialist in the interim. That is very convenient for me. I didn't realize that it would be such a gradual process to get to your target range, but it is probably better than trying to get used to them all at once. In general, I like the Phonak Audeo Marvel 70R aids. I anticipate looking into purchasing the TV Connector accessory, since I still have some difficulty understanding speech on TV, especially when the actors speak quickly, or have an accent. But I am now able to turn off the closed captioning on my TV, so that is a big plus to me, and it indicates to me that I am no longer struggling to understand speech on TV.
