This 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.
One thing to be aware of should you decide to place an order for the Virto B titanium hearing aids, is the manufacturing time is at least 10 business days. We will expedite your order to and from the manufacturer, but production takes quite a while at Phonak, so there will be a longer wait for this product than any other product we have available- though it's worth the wait!
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).
