There is an array of wireless accessories that boost hearing aid performance with minimal effort.

Phonak are also industry leaders in the use of remote microphones. Remote microphones allow a sound to be transmitted to the hearing aid user using a Bluetooth signal. This allows the listener to hear sounds from some distance, as if they are right next to them.

Phonak’s latest development is to include directional microphones, touch screens, rechargeable, pass-around microphones and a multimedia hub into their remote microphone range.
