PACIFIC HEARING SERVICE
Phonak Hearing Aids
The first portable audio devices were released under the Phonak Alpina brand in 1950, establishing their 70-year foundation of knowledge and experience.
A leader in the development of wireless communication, Phonak applies their expertise to their hearing devices with the philosophy that “life is on.”
Phonak has been our “go-to” company for FM systems for years. In 2013 they introduced the Roger System that allows Roger microphones to stream directly to hearing aids. Use of Phonak’s Roger accessories improves speech understanding in groups and in noise. It is unique in that several microphones can be used at the same time.
We find Phonak has great technology for people who need something a little different. We like their BICROS hearing aids for people with single-sided deafness and their Roger accessories for use in challenging environments.
Visaton Super was an Phonak innovation in 1967, creating glasses with integrated hearing aids. Additional firsts included the world’s first BTE (behind-the-ear) hearing aid (Phonette) in 1970 as well as the audio input technology upon which FM devices were based.
PICS, the first digitally programmed hearing aid with an analogue processor, was released by Phonak in 1992, followed closely by their AudioZoom multi-microphone concept in 1994, and the first tiny FM receiver, MicroLink, in 1996.
After launching SmartLink (Bluetooth integration technology) in 2003, Phonak has focused on developing bionic systems with the latest in digital technology for natural, effortless hearing with Binaural VoiceStream Technology that improved sound distinction by up to 45% in challenging noise environments.
The water-resistant housings were introduced in 2008 and the use of nano-digital technology made it possible for Phonak to produce the world’s first extended wear product, Lyric, in 2011.
