If you’re at all familiar with the hearing aid industry, you’ll know that Phonak has been at the cutting edge of new development for quite some time now. Most recently, with its new Marvel series, Phonak became the very first hearing aid manufacturer to allow direct streaming to Android and Apple devices, meaning you no longer have to wear a special streaming device to transmit audio from a Bluetooth-enabled device to your hearing aids.
Obviously, this is a huge development for hearing aid products in Pierce County, WA. Combine this with the newest rechargeability features and the Phonak Marvel series has some clearly tremendous appeal to people with hearing difficulties.
The sound quality of the Phonak Marvel 2.0 has also received a significant amount of praise. The sound is clear and rich, and reviews rave about the AutoSense OS, which allows for devices that automatically adapt to a wider variety of listening environments than ever before.
Options for customization
The direct streaming and rechargeability features provide users with a lot to talk about, but there are even more options for end-user customization thanks to the development of the myPhonak app. The app allows hearing aid users with Phonak devices to take control of many aspects of their hearing aids, and also to request some remote support when issues arise.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the app features that allow for this customization:
- Remote Support: This function allows you to give a hearing professional remote video support, making it easier for you to make real-time adjustments to your hearing aids without having to go to your audiologist or hearing clinic. There are some small adjustments that shouldn’t require you to make these trips, so this feature adds a lot of convenience.
- Remote Control: The Remote Control feature allows the user to easily adjust the volume and frequency response of the hearing aids they’re wearing. The user also has the ability to select different programs for the variety of listening situations they might find themselves in, and create preferred settings for those situations.
- My Hearing Aids: The My Hearing Aids tab on the app enables the user to get status updates about their hearing aids and any accessories they have connected to them. This will include statistics about wearing time and battery status/usage.
- Hearing Diary: The app’s diary section allows you to track your hearing experiences, give star ratings, get an overview of your usage and hearing information and share feedback about your hearing aid experience with the hearing care professional you’re working with so you can easily make any necessary adjustments.
These are just a few examples of some of the biggest technological upgrades that Phonak has made in recent years.
