Unique hearing needs of clients with SSD

Left untreated, single-sided deafness can lead to increased stress and anxiety for clients, and a decrease in social interaction, due to difficulty in following conversations and navigating their surroundings.

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

When you can follow conversations from whichever direction they come, life is on

Fitted with a Belong™ hearing aid, the wireless CROS B transmitter enables clients with single-sided deafness (SSD) to hear speech clearly and follow conversations from whichever direction they come. Using our unique Binaural VoiceStream Technology™, CROS B wirelessly transfers sound from the non-hearing ear to the hearing aid on the better hearing side. The ability to create a very narrow beamforming pattern allows clients to enjoy excellent speech understanding in noise. Plus, CROS B is easy to fit and demo.

Now, clients get to enjoy all the proven Phonak CROS performance in a rechargeable product.
