Solutions for single-sided deafness
Phonak CROS is the smart solution for clients with single-sided deafness (SSD) or an unaidable hearing loss in one ear.
The latest generation with Phonak CROS II is easier to fit, delivers better speech understanding and has a 30% longer battery life.
Unique hearing needs of clients with SSD
Clients who have no hearing in one ear are forced to use coping strategies in order to stay in the conversation and are at a disadvantage when approached from their non-hearing side. They require a solution which:
- Enables them to have a conversation in quiet and noisy surroundings without having to reposition themselves
- Allows them to respond when talked to
on the side they can’t hear from
- Requires no surgical procedures
- Is discreet
Our single-sided deafness solutions
Featuring the unique Phonak Binaural VoiceStream Technology™, Phonak CROS wirelessly transmits sound from the unaidable ear to a hearing aid on the better hearing ear. As a result, a person with single-sided deafness can hear speech from the side they cannot hear from.
CROS II is available in two discreet models. If you’re looking for the smallest size the 312 is the optimal choice. The 13 model offers extended battery life and a volume control. CROS II is compatible with any wireless Phonak Venture hearing aid.
