Phonak Hearing Aids:
Your Expert Guide

At Arcade Hearing in Santa Monica, we understand your hearing aids have to work in a more sophisticated way than just enabling you to hear sounds audibly. We inform you about how to choose a device which has the capability to emphasize sounds from different directions, reduce background noises and flatten frequencies. We want you to have hearing aids which automatically adapt to where you are, giving the best possible sound quality.

The Audéo Paradise includes the latest in speech-enhancing technology, with dynamic noise cancellation and the inclusion of motion sensor hearing.

Paradise devices come with a tap control which enables you to activate Siri or Alexa, answer or reject calls, and pause streaming or audio. You can do all of this from the comfort of your chair just by lifting a finger. The Paradise also has Bluetooth capability and includes tinnitus masking for your comfort, plus a rechargeable battery option.

The design is offered exclusively as a receiver-in-canal (RIC) style. This means the speaker of the hearing aid rests your ear canal. However, the microphone and processor are concealed and sit in a tiny case behind your ear.

The Lyric is the only invisible-in-the-ear hearing aid available on the market, and the device can be worn long-term, sometimes for up to months at a time. The model has the same Bluetooth capabilities as the Audeo.

Phonak hearing devices also use Binaural VoiceStream Technology, which streams real-time full audio bandwidth bi-directionally in both ears. This feature enables you to put less effort into trying to hear others speak in a noisy environment.

The CROS

Phonak’s CROS line of hearing devices has been developed specifically for for those who are experiencing single-sided hearing, or hearing through one ear only. The model also has superior Bluetooth capabilities, enabling streaming to your device with the touch of a finger.

The Roger Wireless technology in Phonak products means sound is directly transmitted to the Phonak hearing aid wearer. Roger Wireless was created for situations where hearing environments are difficult, and it helps to reduce background noise while making the immediate conversation clearer, especially in restaurants or a roomful of people.

All Phonak hearing aid models have Bluetooth connectivity for Apple and Android devices as well as Bluetooth-enabled devices, and can work with ‘Roger On’ microphones. In addition, some models even have built-in microphone capability.

The direct connectivity means Phonak hearing devices are compatible with any cell phone that uses Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology. Phonak models have the capability to work with many older phone designs, and can be used as a hands-free cell phone or wireless TV headset.

AutoSense OS hearing technology is another sophisticated feature which immediately adapts your device to your sound environment by carrying out a fast analysis and blending audio profiles. The result is an optimal hearing experience.

Phonak has also developed AutoSense Sky OS technology that has been specifically designed for children and teens meaning that wherever you are, whether your location is in the classroom or playground, listening to music, or enjoying conversations with friends, children and teens have a superior level of hearing.

A number of Phonak hearing devices have rechargeable batteries, which are self-contained lithium-ion batteries. Extremely durable, you can enjoy four to five years of use without having to change the battery in your device. Tests have revealed rechargeable batteries are 15% more reliable than replaceable batteries.
