Big gains from the mighty miniature
Phonak’s tiny new hearing instrument offers big advantages and opens the door to people who haven’t been able to wear in-the-canal devices.
The key to the Phonak Virto B-Titanium - possibly the smallest IIC on the market - is that its shell is made from titanium, renowned for its strength and durability.
This means the device can be made smaller, giving hope to people whose small ear canals have meant this style of aid has not been an option, while the greater strength also allows more venting to reduce the occlusion effect - your voice echoing when you speak.
On top of that the aid has a more powerful receiver meaning these devices will cater to people with a greater hearing loss.
That’s exciting news for hearing-aid users.
Phonak says the shell now can be as thin as 0.2mm, which is 50% thinner than existing acrylic shells and is more crack-resistant.
On top of this the electronic components are 60% smaller than in existing models resulting in a hearing aid that’s 26% smaller, while the fit rate has jumped a massive 64%.
In summary, it’s discreteness meets versatility and power
• 26% size reduction resulting in a 64% increase in fit rate
• Bigger venting for better management of occlusion
• A more powerful receiver to cater for greater hearing loss
If you haven’t been able to wear an in-the-canal hearing aid before, NOW is the time to try again and enjoy listening to the things you always loved.
