Phonak, a global leader in the development and manufacture of digital hearing aids, is recognized by hearing health care professionals for the company’s product leadership and innovational features built into the entire product line of Phonak hearing aids.
Phonak began in 1947 in Zurich, Switzerland when the company was set up by a group of investors. A marketing company was formed in the United States in 1989. Phonak product highlights include the introduction of MicroLink, a small FM receiver in 1996, and in 2003, hearing aids with Bluetooth. The company also opened production facilities in China, and then Vietnam.
Today, with multiple brands and distribution channels, Phonak offers a complete range of digital hearing aid devices, along with high tech specialty hearing aid products and complementary wireless communications systems. With all that said, Phonak is one of the three technology leaders in the hearing aid industry.
Benefits and Features
Phonak hearing aids include valuable features like the ability to connect the hearing aid device to laptops, MP3 players, televisions, and mobile phones. SoundRecover is a feature that accommodates high frequencies, such as singing birds, which many people suffering from hearing loss cannot distinguish. The WindBlock Management technology eliminates wind blowing sounds which is a common problem with hearing aid users. With WhistleBlock technology in all of the Phonak hearing aids, whistling will not be experienced when getting close to another person. Phonak also offers water resistant hearing aids and a special line of wireless cross-directional hearing aids for people with one-sided hearing loss.
Phonak offers hearing aid devices designed for individuals with mild to severe hearing loss. Each hearing aid covers a different level of hearing loss. In addition to custom designs, the hearing aids come in custom colors to match nearly every skin tone. Phonak is also known for its FM transmitters and receivers. FM systems work by transmitting sound from speakers, who wear small transmitter microphones. The speakers talk, and the sound is transmitted directly to the hearing aid (receiver) of the listener. All of the features are developed and designed to improve the range and quality of sounds heard through a Phonak hearing aid device.
