Simplifying life with a simply brilliant solution

With clients becoming increasingly active, they require hearing aids that can automatically keep up with their lifestyles. Having the freedom to do and go wherever they please, without having the restrictions associated with hearing loss, is paramount.

We’ve taken this as a key focus area when creating the new Phonak Belong™ platform. As the name suggests, we want clients to have hearing aids that allow them to feel at one with their environment, regardless of where they are. Your clients can rely on their hearing aids to seamlessly and automatically do all the work for them.

With Belong, thanks to rechargeable lithium-ion battery technology, a direct connectivity solution and AutoSense OS, we’ve created a simply brilliant way to simplify your clients’ lives, while providing an exceptional hearing experience.

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

Fitted with an Audéo B 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 Audéo B-R 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.
