The water and dirt resistant portfolio is completed by the introduction of the new Naída S CRT, an external receiver device for those who do not want to compromise when it comes to a powerful, yet discreet hearing solution. As member of the M H2O product family, the new Nios S H2O is an extremely robust and reliable hearing aid of the pediatric portfolio and offers micro-sized housing perfectly suited for small ears.
Nothing to see, everything to hear
Smallest custom-made Phonak hearing aid offers excellent fit and is virtually invisible in the ear.
Stäfa, Switzerland (October 19, 2011) – With the new Phonak nano, users no longer have to choose between a discreet solution and excellent hearing performance. The smallest custom-made Phonak hearing instrument is virtually invisible in the ear while allowing for clear understanding even in challenging listening situations. Thanks to the Spice+ signal processing technology, spontaneous acceptance is practically guaranteed and overall sound quality is excellent. A new shell design allows the hearing aid to be worn comfortably within the ear canal.
With high ambitions, Phonak aimed to place the best sound processor in the industry in the smallest custom shell, requiring no special impression techniques and delivering the best hearing performance. Phonak nano is the fulfillment of this vision. Many people with hearing impairment are self-conscious and prefer a hearing aid that is not visible. They wish for a small and discreet solution that is not easily seen, but which delivers outstanding sound quality in a wide variety of daily listening environments.
Nano size, great performance
The new custom design coupled with Spice+ technology ensures that there is no compromise between size and performance. A new composite shell material with ceramic-like reinforcement – especially adapted from the dental industry – allows for a significantly reduced shell wall thickness while maintaining strength and durability.
“Many people struggle with their hearing every day, but still refuse to wear a hearing aid because they do not want their colleagues, friends and family to know about it. We have worked hard to offer a solution that delivers outstanding hearing performance in a size that is extremely appealing”, says Alexander Zschokke, Interim CEO of Phonak. “The result is Phonak nano. It allows for effortless hearing, while also being virtually invisible in the ear canal.”
Comfortable fit, high spontaneous acceptance
Each Phonak nano is custom-crafted using advanced 100% digital design and production technology and the latest material science. Thinner shell walls, a new faceplate and battery door design and other innovations allow for optimum component positioning, resulting in a device that sits deeper in the ear canal. A tapered tip prevents contact with the bony portion of the ear canal for enhanced wearing comfort. Device geometry data is automatically transferred to the Phonak Target fitting software for an optimized first-fit result that improves spontaneous acceptance.
