The 5th generation of the world’s most trusted power hearing aid.
Phonak Naída™ B
Decades of dedicated power hearing solutions
Globally, more than 87 million people have severe to profound hearing loss1 and face a unique and complex set of challenges. Due to this, they require a solution that is capable of delivering more than just more power.
Since the launch of our first power hearing aid in 1978, we have continuously created hearing solutions, designed to bring people with a severe to profound hearing loss closer to the beauty of sound.
When dedicated power hearing technology brings you closer, life is on
Back in 2007 we introduced the first Naída power hearing aid. Since then, more than 2.5 million hearing aids have been fitted worldwide and it has continuously evolved to become a revolutionary device.
Combining our expertise and efforts in research and development, we are delighted to introduce the 5th generation of the world’s most trusted power hearing aid: Phonak Naída B.
More fitting flexibility
With the new proprietary fitting formula Adaptive Phonak Digital Contrast, we now introduce a slow compression option, developed to meet the processing needs of clients with poor auditory resolution abilities. Through longer attack and release times, the spectral contrasts as well as the speech signal modulations are better preserved. This increases the envelope cues for speech compared to Adaptive Phonak Digital, so it is now possible to get closer to the original speech signal and make lost details in speech more pronounced. Research shows that this leads to improved vowel recognition for some clients.2, 3
More audibility of high-frequency sounds
SoundRecover2 provides clients with loss of high-frequency hearing a further enhanced listening experience versus the original SoundRecover feature. Sound quality of mid and low frequencies is maintained, while relevant high-frequency sounds are compressed and thereby made audible.4, 5 The adaptive behavior guarantees that this is only applied when the level of the input signal requires it.
Excellent speech understanding
The loss of signal-to-noise ratio determines whether clients can only hear or actually understand what is being said.
Phonak Naída B default first fit provides the industry’s best Speech Intelligibility Index (SII) results for clients with severe to profound hearing loss.6
Binaural VoiceStream Technology™ provides excellent signal-to-noise ratio in background noise and in challenging listening situations. It has the ability to stream the full audio bandwidth in real-time and bi-directionally across both hearing aids to improve speech understanding and reduce listening effort.6, 7, 8
