The proven performance of Phonak CROS - now rechargeable
With CROS B-R, clients now get all the proven benefits of Phonak CROS in a rechargeable option so they can enjoy one day of hearing from both sides, with no battery hassles. Powered by Phonak Belong™ technology, this product features our signature Binaural VoiceStream Technology™ for excellent speech understanding in noise. Plus, CROS B-R is super easy to fit and demo, thanks to Phonak Target.
1 day of hearing from both sides with no battery hassles
This means greater convenience for everyone. Clients simply charge their CROS solution overnight and use it all day. Thanks to a built-in lithium-ion rechargeable battery, there’s no more dealing with disposable batteries that are small and difficult to handle, no more remembering to carry spare batteries, no more inconvenient battery changes.
And because there’s no need for you to explain battery issues and maintenance, you get more counselling and demo time with your clients.
Excellent speech understanding in noise
Using our signature Binaural VoiceStream Technology™, CROS B wirelessly transfers sound from the client’s non-hearing ear to the Belong hearing aid on the better-hearing side. Thanks to this proven binaural beamforming technology, CROS B has the ability to create a very narrow beamforming pattern, resulting in a 3.8 dB improvement in speech intelligibility in noise**, compared to no Binaural VoiceStream Technology™. For clients, this means excellent speech understanding in noise.
Easy to fit and demo
As CROS fittings do not happen often, it’s important for you to be able to follow a streamlined fitting process that makes the experience as easy and intuitive as a binaural fit. When using iCube II, Phonak CROS B is active during the fitting. Your clients get to instantly experience the benefits of CROS and provide feedback to you during the session. This also allows for an easy and effective demonstration, which is essential for product sales.
