Phonak Virto Marvel

A stigma-busting hearing aid that looks like a hearable

As of February 22, 2022 Virto Marvel is an outdated model. If you're interested in Virto Marvel, we'd recommend checking out the next generation model, Virto Paradise.

Virto Marvel was most well-known for being the first custom in-the-ear hearing aid to offer direct Bluetooth connectivity and hands-free phone calls with just about all smartphones.

There are sometimes legitimate reasons to purchase an outdated model, but in most cases we'd recommend taking a look at the newer model.

It’s very unnoticeable and works well

Review by: Michael from CA
Model: Phonak Virto Marvel 70 Titanium IIC
Bought: May 2021

Hello, my name is Michael, I’m 66 years old, I’ve had hearing aids for about the last 10-12 years, I noticed that I was starting to lose hearing in my left ear, in my early 50s, not really sure why- there was a couple theories, one was, I was a paramedic for many years, so it might’ve been a exposure to a lot of siren noise. But in my early 50s I realized I needed to look for a solution for that, purchased a hearing aid at that point, which I was very happy with. That hearing aid lasted for well over 10 years actually, and it was still going strong, I needed to send it in for some servicing, and unfortunately it ended up getting lost in transition. So I recently purchased a new Phonak Virto M70 titanium, it’s an in the ear model, you can see it here, looks kind of large when I hold it close to the camera, but as you can see, when I put it back in the ear, it’s very unnoticeable and works well, it normalizes my hearing on both sides. I chose this because again, I’d had good luck with this brand on my first time around, and wanted to stay with that same brand, read good reviews on this particular model and decided to go for it. I’m happy with how light weight it is, and how I do feel like I’m hearing equally on both sides now, as I had been with my previous hearing aid. I would highly recommend people consider either this model or, listen to your hearing professionals, don’t get locked into any one model as you walk in the door. The idea is to get your hearing back to where it needs to me, and there are a lot of different models out there, this is one option that you could consider, but there are others that are both in the ear and over the ear and so on. The #1 recommendation that I would give is do something, it does cause issues for you as the person suffering from the hearing loss, but it also affects your friends and family. I often heard about people getting tired of having to repeat things, or hear my sounds when I’m playing music or watching TV, and then the sound, you know, was always turned up so that I could hear it properly. All that went away once I had the right hearing aid solution, and life is too short to have to put you or your loved ones through that, so, I definitely recommend, like I said, that you do something to help yourself out. Hope this was helpful and good luck with your search.

Common questions about Phonak Virto Marvel hearing aids

Bluetooth / ConnectivityDisposable BatteriesControls/AppsMiscellaneous

Choose questions category:

Is this hearing aid Bluetooth compatible?
Yes. The Virto M 312 model is Bluetooth compatible and offers direct audio streaming from almost all phones. The Virto M 10, Titanium, and Virto M 312 NW models are not Bluetooth compatible.
Does this hearing aid allow for hands-free phone calls?
The Virto M 312 model offers hands-free phone calls. The other models don't have Bluetooth and thus do not offer this feature.
Can this hearing aid be paired directly to my Bluetooth TV?
The M 312 model can, though Phonak doesn't recommend it, as it can cause excessive battery drain. Phonak recommends purchasing the TV Connector accessory for this instead.
Is this hearing aid Roger compatible?
Yes- the Virto M 312 model can pair directly to Roger devices.
How long do the batteries last?
Batteries for the Virto M10 and Titanium models will last 2-5 days. Virto M 312, about 5 days, depending on how much Bluetooth streaming you do. Virto M 312 NW, 5-7 days.
How will I know when it's time to change the battery?
The hearing aids will make two long beep sounds. Your hearing care provider can show you a demo of these sounds in Phonak's fitting software, so you know what to expect. Typically the aids will make these notification sounds every 15-30 minutes, until the aid quits working entirely.
What size battery do they take?
The battery size is indicated in the model name, for example the Virto M 312 takes a size 312 battery. All other models take a size 10 battery.
Are the batteries hard to change?
On the M 10 and Titanium models, yes. You'll need good dexterity to change them. The models which use a size 312 battery are much easier and most people can manage just fine.
How can I control this hearing aid, and which settings can I control?
Control options will vary depending on the model. You can control the volume and program of the Wireless Virto M 312 with the onboard push button, optional rotary volume control wheel, the RemoteControl, or the myPhonak app. The myPhonak app will also allow you to adjust the frequencies of the hearing aids. All other models can be controlled by an optional push button, which will let you adjust either the volume or program. Often, the Titanium IIC model will be so small that there's no room for a push button, in which case you'd have to use Phonak's MiniControl accessory, which will allow you to change either the volume or program.
How do I turn this hearing aid on and off?
To turn the hearing aid on, simply close the battery door. Opening the battery door will turn the hearing aid off.
Does the app have a “Find My Hearing Aid” feature?
Phonak hearing aids and Phonak apps do not have a "Find My Hearing Aid" feature.
Is this hearing aid CROS compatible?
No. The only in-the-ear models from Phonak that are CROS compatible are the older (Virto B) models from 2017.
Can I get this hearing aid with a telecoil?
The M 10 & M 312 NW models include a telecoil, and it's optional on the Titanium models. A telecoil is not an option on the M 312 model.

myPhonak app

Use this app to adjust settings like volume, programs, frequencies, and noise cancellation. Easily make changes to your hearing aid(s) to suit your personal preferences for various listening situations. You can easily adjust the volume and various hearing aid features (e.g., noise reduction and microphone directionality) or select pre-defined programs according to the different listening situation you are in. Additionally, you can make quick adjustments to the pitch of the sound in the equalizer by using the presets (default, comfort, clarity, softer, etc.) or more personalized adjustments using the sliders (bass, middle, treble). In some cases, you can even connect with your hearing provider for remote adjustments to your hearing aids. When used with the Audéo Fit model, numerous functions are available within the Health section of the app, such as Steps and Wearing time, including Optional goal setting, Activity levels, Heart rate tracking, Distance walked and ran.

Accessories (by popularity)

RATING1
The image of TV Connector hearing aids
TV Connector, $279

TV Connector, $279

Plug it into the back of your TV or soundbar and the audio will be streamed directly to your hearing aids. Others can keep the TV at their preferred volume level, while you set your own volume via the app, on the hearing aids themselves, or via the + or - buttons on the TV connector.
RATING2
The image of RemoteControl hearing aids
RemoteControl, $249

RemoteControl, $249

You probably don't need this. Most people use the app to control their hearing aids, and if not the app, then the push button on the hearing aid itself. But if neither of those suit you, this remote is a simple way to control the volume and program.
RATING3
The image of Roger On iN hearing aids
Roger On iN, $1649

Roger On iN, $1649

Roger On has 3 modes- Pointing mode, Presenter mode, and Table Mic mode. In Pointing mode, simply point it towards the subject you want to hear and it'll pick up their voice, just like a microphone would. In Presenter mode (AKA lapel mode), it'll focus almost entirely on the wearer's voice and stream that to your hearing aids. In Table Mic mode is where this accessory shines, and what gives it the advantage over Roger Pen iN. When Roger On is laid flat on a surface (like a table), it automatically figures out it's orientation and switches into an automatic directionality mode. In this mode, it can automatically shift the focus of the microphones towards the direction of speech. Roger On can also wirelessly stream audio from the TV to your hearing aids, so if you buy it, you don't need to buy the TV Connector.
RATING4
The image of Roger Select iN hearing aids
Roger Select iN, $1349

Roger Select iN, $1349

Ideal for stationary situations where background noise is present, like a table at a restaurant. Set the Select iN in the middle of the table, and it automatically selects the person who is talking and seamlessly switches from one talker to another, streaming the sound directly to your hearing aids. What's nice about the Roger Select (and the reason it's better for smaller group conversations where it can be placed within arms reach), is you can hit a button on the device to change the direction the microphone is facing – you can “select” it – and override the automatic selection, allowing you to focus on the speaker most important to you. Select iN can also be worn by someone else you want to hear, on their chest using a clip or lanyard. This is known as “lapel mode.” When in lapel mode, Select iN knows its orientation and automatically ensures the microphone points upward to pick up the voice of the speaker. The lapel mode is good for a presenter at a meeting, a fitness class, and a passenger or driver in a car. Roger Select iN can also wirelessly stream audio from the TV to your hearing aids, so if you buy a Select iN, you don't need to buy the TV Connector.
RATING5
The image of Roger Table Mic II iN hearing aids
Roger Table Mic II iN, $1888

Roger Table Mic II iN, $1888

Of all the Roger accessories, Table Mic II iN has the least versatile functionality- it's really only designed for stationary use. Ideal for working adults who participate in various meetings with multiple (4+) people involved. When placed in the middle of a table, it's able to automatically pick up the voice of the person who is talking and stream it directly to your hearing aids. Table Mic II iN automatically switches between speakers, and unlike Select, you can't manually override the choices Table Mic II iN makes. Multiple Roger Table microphones can be connected to create a network and with a range of more than 60 feet it ensures you're able to fully understand everyone at work.
RATING6
The image of PartnerMic hearing aids
PartnerMic, $449

PartnerMic, $449

If you have a hard time hearing in noise this accessory is a lifesaver. Attach this microphone to a companion's shirt and their voice will stream directly to your hearing aids. Their voice will come through much stronger than all the competing noise in the environment.
RATING7
The image of MiniControl hearing aids
MiniControl, $20

MiniControl, $20

The MiniControl contains a magnet that functions like a remote control to change the settings of Virto Titanium and Virto 10 models.
RATING8
The image of D-Dry+ hearing aids
D-Dry+, $179

D-Dry+, $179

If you live in a humid environment, sweat a lot, are prone to ear infections, or are getting custom in-the-ear hearing aids, you should get this. It plugs into a standard outlet and uses UV-C light to kill germs, and blows warm air to remove moisture.
