Released by Phonak on August 21, 2016 the Phonak Audeo B50 falls under Phonak`s standard technology level within the Audeo B family.
As standard technology, this hearing aid is one level above the most basic technology that Phonak has to offer, making it a practical choice for individuals with quiet lifestyles, who primarily wish to hear better around the home, in one-on-one conversations, watching TV, and in mostly quiet and small group settings.
The Phonak Audeo B50 hearing aid has 12 channels and 5 customizable programs, and that gives it the flexibility to digitally process sound in a way that sounds natural, and can also be adapted to the particular listening environment of the wearer.

With a maximum potential gain of 66 SPL, the Audeo B50 is suitable for individuals with mild to severe hearing loss.
With its discreet RIC (receiver in canal) style, the Audeo B50 sits comfortably behind the ear and is hardly noticeable to the wearer or others. This hearing aid is available in 8 color choices as shown below.

Phonak Audeo B50 Reviews
Based on 6 User Reviews
I am very satisfied with my new Phonak Audeo V50 hearing aids. When the audiologist first put them in an program them I realized how many sounds I was missing. Her voice was so much clearer than a moment before. She explained everything I needed to know about how they work and how to care for them. I am also very glad I found ZipHearing. I saved $600 and did not have to give up support from a professional service. The ZipHearing representatives were very helpful and polite. They called soon after I inquired online and after explaining the purchase program I received information via email within minutes of hanging up the phone. After visiting the audiologist and deciding to purchase from ZipHearing it took one call to have the hearing aids on their way. They ship directly to the audiologist so all I had to do was set up an appointment to have them fitted. ZipHearing offers a tryout period and follow-up visits. Getting hearing aids can be a bit confusing and scary but using ZipHearing and a local audiologist made it easy and well worth the money.
My Phonak B50s have been incredibly comfortable from the first day. It's a little bit like wearing light-weight sunglasses. My audiologist warned me that it would take up to a week to get used to the different sounds of voices, including my own. Wow, I can honestly say that from day one the only difference I have noticed is that I am hearing better. My experience with ZipHearing has been outstanding. From the first call (no menu tree, just a live enthusiastic person) to my wearing my aids, they have been outstanding. Delivery to my audiologist took all of two days. Add to that the incredible prices and a year's free batteries, and what can I say? Thanks!
The Phonak Aude'o B-312 has a very effective Dome in ear microphone. I particularly like the ability to increase and decrease volume in increments by pressing a tab on the behind the ear case (up on right ear case and down on left ear case). My only complaint is that when putting a new battery in, it is a bit difficult to set the small 312 battery flat.before closing the case. With time one gets better.
After trying several other hearing aids I finally found ZipHearing. They were extremely understanding about why I had been having problems with my former aids. The aids that they furnished (Phonak Audeo B50) came in less than a week and were just what I was hoping they would. I have had them for a month and after one adjustment they are working to my complete satisfaction. I am a real fan of theirs and would recommend them to anyone that is not satisfied with the service of any other company. What great service.
I received my Audeo B50 hearing aids yesterday and I can't believe how much I was not hearing. So far I have found them easy to place in ear..my provider gave me a lot of time and excellent instructions in the use of my new hearing aids. I would recommend her to friends. I look forward to my next office visit to fine tune.
I can hear much better with my new Phonak Audeo B50 ric hearing aids. They are comfortable but will take some time to get used to. I feel the clarity is good to hear with. My family likes that i can hear better. I am wearing every day as to get used to them and I enjoy them. And the cost was the best. Thank you Zip hearing for being there tho help
