STAEFA, Switzerland, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For those requiring a hearing aid, there is no greater feeling than the sense of security that comes with knowing the device is going to deliver seamless sound quality across various listening environments. The latest Phonak product family, Audeo V, employs a new chip technology that offers twice the processing power to provide a quality listening experience in both noisy and quiet environments. Audeo V is easy for wearers to use and utilizes up to 30% less battery consumption than previous similar models - bringing more quality of life and freedom to hearing aid users.
"With our new platform and latest generation of hearing aids, Phonak continues to deliver on its promise of redefining the sound experience across all listening environments," says Martin Grieder, Group Vice President at Phonak. "Whether traveling in a car with the family or at a business event with a group of colleagues, the Audeo V adapts to each soundscape to provide the highest sound quality and to allow for more freedom and quality of life."
Intelligence that automatically adapts to the listening environment
The sounds that we hear are constantly changing and vary not only in volume and type, e.g. music, voices or wind blowing, but also in the mix and predominance. This makes the task a hearing aid has to perform very complex, since users want to hear it all, while still having the ability to focus and pick out what is important for them. Until now, rarely could sound be categorized or allocated to a specific situation.
This is where the new AutoSense Operating System (OS) excels. The "central brain" of the Phonak Audeo V product line captures and analyzes incoming sounds and can then draw on more than 200 settings to find the exact match for the particular listening environment - no manual interaction required.
This means that Audeo V users will benefit from the best possible listening experience for the respective environment they are in.
The wireless Phonak Audeo V family of hearing aids comes in four different performance-level models. In addition, the redesigned housings are reinforced with high-tech composite materials for extra durability.
A portfolio of innovative solutions
The Phonak Audeo V family of hearing aids is complemented by the Phonak Wireless Communication Portfolio, which enhances the user experience through interaction across various communication technologies:
