Compare settings in Target
 

Compare settings

This valuable tool is the most convenient way to compare your latest adjustments with previous settings. This unique feature allows you to compare and choose programs from earlier fittings without leaving the session. The first snapshot will be taken automatically after connecting the hearing aids to the software. In fine-tuning, additional snapshots can be taken manually at any time. Using sounds from the integrated media player, you can directly involve your clients in selecting the preferred settings.

 
Transfer settings across models
 

Transfer settings

The Transfer Settings function enables easy migration of key elements of the previous fitting, across models and product families and software versions from iPFG 2.5 onwards, to the new fitting. Transferred elements include the fitting formula, fine-tuned frequency responses and the customized program structure. It makes the process of migrating fitting settings more efficient, useful for example when upselling.

 
Real Ear Calibration
 

Feedback and real ear test

For precise results and a better first fit, individual data beyond the audiogram and the selected acoustic coupling is essential. It is possible to test and evaluate Phonak hearing aids directly in the client’s ear. The Feedback and real ear test combines the individual feedback threshold, RECD data and acoustic parameter settings to create a more accurate fitting calculation. Additional test equipment is not required.

 
Phonak Target Software 7.0 Auto acclimatization
 

auto Acclimatization

The hearing care professional can specify a duration in which the gain of the hearing aid automatically increases to a set target gain. The benefit for the client is the hearing aid gradually and comfortably acclimatizes, instead of you having to increase the gain session by session. The benefit for the hearing care professional is that is shows you the exact gain level processed by the hearing aid. 

 
AudiogramDirect
 

AudiogramDirect

Test your client’s hearing directly through any hearing aid fitted in Phonak Target, taking into account the properties of the individual ears and the chosen hearing aids. AudiogramDirect provides a more personalized pre-calculation, leading to less fine-tuning efforts.

Additionally, you can compare diagnostic data obtained in different sessions without having to exit the fitting session. You are able to overlap two curves in the same view for easy comparison and showing the progression of the clients hearing loss over time, a feature that is extremely valuable in the counseling process.

Audibility fine tuning Target
 

Audibility fine-tuning

This is the efficient and focused way to personalize settings to accommodate individual user preferences and listening needs. This approach addresses the need for fine-tuning to specific hearing targets, such as speech, own voice, overall loudness and even individual phonemes crucial for speech recognition and intelligibility. Adjustments affect only gain levels and frequencies, which are relevant to enhance the audibility of the selected stimuli. The areas of modification are highlighted in the curve display as well as in the gain table. With audibility fine-tuning, you can respond to client needs in a fast and precise manner.

 
Client view and second screen

[Client view] is accessible within the client session in the right-upper corner.

 
Tinnitus Balance
 

Tinnitus Balance

The Tinnitus Balance noise generator offers essential tools to support your tinnitus management philosophy. Gain can be muted for manual programs (i.e. for noise generator only use). The use of broadband sound is common in tinnitus management either in the context of masking or sound therapy.
