We are excited to announce that Phonak has just released a new rechargeable hearing aid. It is called the Audeo B-R.
The “B” stands for their new “Belong” platform that features a new AutoSense Operating System. This is reported to deliver 20% better speech understanding in general, a 60% improvement in speech understanding in a noisy environments and a 37% reduction in listening effort when listening in a car. It does this by capturing and analyzing sounds every 0.4 seconds in real-time and then blending multiple features to create over 200 distinct settings to match the sound environment.
The Audeo B-R will be the first hearing aid to have a built-in lithium-ion rechargeable battery. It will provide 24 hours of hearing after a charge for only 3 hours. The battery is expected to last the lifetime of the hearing aid, even after years of charging. This will be a great option for those with dexterity issues or arthritis. It’s also a more environmentally friendly option as there are no batteries to recycle every week. It has a wide fitting range and can accommodate most hearing losses. You can call us anytime to come in and chat with one of our audiologists about this and other hearing aid options. The Phonak Audeo B-R will be available for order this week.
