Phonak Hearing Aids
Founded in 1947, the Swiss manufacturer Phonak has been committed to changing lives and reconnecting people to their passions and loved ones with state-of-the-art hearing technology. Phonak continues to grow and innovate, and has made the promise to not rest until “wearing a hearing aid is as simple and routine as eyeglasses or contact lenses.” As an international hearing aid manufacturer, Phonak takes in feedback from hearing aid wearers and hearing professionals across the world, using this knowledge to inspire their newest models of hearing aids. With their partners, Phonak also works to break down the stigma attached to hearing loss.
Phonak’s hearing aids are outfitted with a range of programs that adjust depending on the environment, from being in a crowded space to a quiet car, allowing for flexibility in volume. Most of their products feature wind and echo blocking programs, as well as a zoom to focus on specific voices, sounds, or conversations in challenging environments. With an array of style, wireless technology, and color options, including different skin tones, Phonak hearing aids are both powerful and discreet.
