Phonak Bolero V: A new level of performance and reliability
The smallest IP67 rated Phonak BTE offers reliable speech understanding in every listening situation – Venture technology ensures seamless adaptation to changing soundscapes
San Antonio, Texas / Staefa, Switzerland (March 25, 2015) – Decades of BTE expertise meet the latest Venture technology: Phonak Bolero V, packed in an aesthetically appealing design, provides a seamless listening experience in every listening situation. The IP67* rated Phonak Bolero V is water resistant and dust tight for extra durability. Covering a wide range of hearing loss levels, the three new Phonak BTE models, available in four performance levels, now come with an integrated Tinnitus Balance noise generator and easily connect with the entire Phonak Wireless Communication Portfolio.
“With the introduction of Phonak Bolero V, we continue to roll out our cutting edge Phonak platform, this time packed in a small and robust new BTE design”, says Martin Grieder, Group Vice President Phonak. “Hearing aid users can rely on excellent sound quality and speech understanding in every listening environment. This means more confidence and freedom to live your life to the fullest, whether you want to spend time with friends and family or enjoy the pleasures of nature.”
Phonak Bolero V runs on AutoSense OS, the central brain of the new Phonak Venture hearing aids. It captures and analyzes incoming sound and can draw on over 200 settings to match the sound environment exactly and to seamlessly provide the best setting for that environment – with no manual interaction required and with 30% less battery consumption than the previous hearing aid generation.
“Since having Phonak Venture hearing aids, I can hear people and the music better”, says Julie Horne from Nottingham, England. “Lots of my friends have commented on how my confidence is coming back and how I can just join in a conversation. Music-wise, it just sounds so much nicer, like it did when I was younger.”
Wide range of Phonak wireless accessories offer boost in performance
The comprehensive Phonak Wireless Communication Portfolio makes watching TV, listening over larger
distances and receiving phone calls with Phonak Bolero V even easier. Phonak EasyCall connects any Phonak wireless hearing aid to any Bluetooth enabled cell phone. Permanently attached to the back of the phone, it streams the conversation directly to both hearing aids in unmatched sound quality. Phonak Bolero V is also compatible with Phonak CROS II, the latest generation of the proven Phonak single-sided deafness solution.
Bolero V will be available with immediate effect.
