Audeo B and Audeo B-R Features

Both Audeo B and Audeo B-R boast Phonak features that address mild to severe hearing loss. Phonak B and B-R (rechargeable option) are both receiver-in-canal hearing aids, so small that they are barely noticeable when worn. With an IP68 rating, Phonak Audeo hearing aids are designed to keep out the elements, protect the sensitive electronic components from dust and moisture, and enable wearers to continue their active lives. Phonak Audeo B and B-R hearing aids are available in four performance levels and nine colors. Both models are fully customizable and molded to fit the wearer's ears for maximum comfort.

AutoSense OS is one of Phonak's trademark features, an automatic operating system that provided better speech understanding and less effort in hearing. AutoSense automatically balances and mixes sounds from the wearer's environment, and provides a more comfortable listening experience with amplification. Compared to similar hearing aids of its kind, AutoSense provides Phonak Audeo aids with 20% better speech understanding in normal environments and 60% in noisy environments. In part, this is thanks to AutoSense's ability to zoom in on a single speaker's voice. For conversations in car, AutoSense has shown a 37% reduction in listening. For soft speech understanding, AutoSense provides wearers with 10% improvement. As an automatic program, AutoSense makes listening seamless for Audeo users by analyzing sound every 0.4 seconds. AutoSense blends sounds at an incredibly fast speed to create 200+ settings, matching almost every possible sound environment you may experience.

Audeo B-R Rechargeable - Breakthrough Lithium-Ion Technology

With an overwhelming call for a rechargeable hearing aid, Phonak has designed Audeo B-R with groundbreaking lithium-ion battery technology. Lithium-ion batteries are the same ones found in your laptops, tablets, and phones – powerful and long-lasting. Phonak Audeo B-R hearing aids eliminate the need for constant battery change, as with traditional hearing aid batteries. The recharging process itself is simple and user friendly.

Audeo B-R may be charged with several different stations available from Phonak. The Phonak Charger Case is a charger, drying kit, and protective hard case all in one, and comes with a cleaning tool. The Charger Case is the largest of the options. The Phonak Power Pack is easily attached to the Phonak Charger Case and can be powered up to be taken on short trips so that you are never caught without battery power. The Power Pack provides up to seven full charges. The Mini-Charger is the smallest option and ideal for travel. For those on the run, Phonak Charger Cases power Audeo B-R aids with six hours of hearing on a 30-minute charge. If you find yourself wirelessly streaming phone calls, music, or other media through your Audeo B-R aids, then you'll experience 80 minutes of uninterrupted listening. On a regular basis, a six-hour charge in the Charger Case provides Audeo B-R aids with 24 hours of unlimited hearing. Phonak Audeo B-R is currently the longest-lasting rechargeable hearing aid available on the market, with 40% more power than any other rechargeable battery option.

Audeo B-Direct - Direct Connectivity to iOS or Android phones

With Audeo B Direct, Phonak has introduced the very first hearing aid that connects directly to both iOS and Android phones. The Direct hearing aids allow the wearer to connect seamlessly to their smartphone without the use of a streamer. These devices can be used as a hands-free, wireless headset for phones and also provide excellent wireless streaming of TV signals (through their TV Connector accessory). 

Phonak Belong Platform

Taking user feedback into account, Phonak has created the Belong Platform, which addresses the desire for sleeker design, heightened comfort, wireless communication, lower power consumption, ease of use, and automation. The Belong Platform is available in two new Phonak hearing aids, Audeo B and Audeo B-R.

Ease of Use

Belong addresses the primary concern from consumers: a rechargeable energy source. Using lithium-ion battery technology, Belong provides Phonak Audeo hearing aids with 24 hours of hearing on a single charge. For a fast charging option, 30 minutes will provide six hours of use. Additionally, unlike other hearing aid batteries, Phonak's rechargeable batteries last four years – which means Audeo hearing aid wearers do not have to worry about changing batteries anytime soon. How's that for convenience?

Hearing Performance

Belong builds upon Phonak's previous technological platforms, to provide hearing aid wearers with excellent listening features. With AutoSense OS and SoundRecover 2, Belong provides Audeo hearing aid wearers with 20% better speech understanding, 60% improvement of speech understanding in very noisy environments, and 37% reduction in effort when listening to conversations in cars. Hearing performance is achieved in the new design with the microphone's unique positioning to capture the greatest picture of sound.

Reviews of Phonak and Phonak Audeo

In the Hearing Review, audiologist Tiffany Sexton says, “Having the Phonak platform in a rechargeable option has been the best thing for both my patients and myself. The Phonak Platform is leaps and bounds above anything that I fit previously, and having it in a rechargeable option has made my job so much easier and it's made my patients so much more willing to try hearing aids. I see a lot of people working in their 40s and 50s that now are willing to get hearing aids because Phonak has a rechargeable option.”

Another audiologist, Kelli House, says that the Audeo B-R is a “completely different product than any other rechargeable that's been on the market. From sound quality to ease of use to how long it lasts and ease of charge, this in my opinion, is the game changer for rechargeable hearing aids, without a doubt.”

On Hearing Tracker, the Phonak Audeo B-R has received a 90% rating.

Phonak

Phonak is a Swiss manufacturer of hearing aids, founded in 1947. With the understanding that hearing loss affects various parts of a person's life, from relationships to passions, Phonak has committed their work to reconnecting people to their lives. By restoring hearing with advanced hearing instruments, Phonak believes that people experience the life-changing effects of reconnecting to their world.

Phonak's innovation has resulted in a number of industry firsts: AudioZoom, a multi-microphone technology (1995), MicroLink FM receiver (1996), the first fully digital hearing aid Claro (1999), and SmartLink, one of the first hearing aids to use Bluetooth wireless connection technology. In addition to these advancements, Phonak is committed to breaking down the barriers to hearing restoration and the stigma surrounding hearing loss. Phonak has vowed to continue their work toward a day when “wearing a hearing aid is as simple and routine as wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses.”

    4.5 Stars with an Android Smart phone

    Posted by Bill Standage on Oct 2nd 2017

    I have been thinking about buying new hearing aids for the last year or so. I just turned 65 but I am not ready to retire yet and spend alot of time on my phone with my work. I started looking around and realized that all of the new high tech hearing aids that do bluetooth connections only work with iPhone. I have a Sasung Galaxy S7 and didnt want to change to an iPhone so I decided to wait. I got a call from my audiologist to let me know about this hearing aid being released. I liked the way they sounded on my phone. The one down side is that they only connect to one ear, but in that way I guess its really not any different than a regular phone. The range is pretty good and I can walk into the next room without it breaking up. Pretty much what I was looking for

    Phonak is great

    Posted by Amberlee Henderson on Jul 13th 2017

    I have been wearing hearing aids for over 20 years and I have been pleasantly surprised by the Audeo. I was so glad to find such a good deal because, as you may know, most places sell this set for close to $6000!
    I really do enjoy the like-natural hearing again and they are great at eliminating background sound.
    My only complaint is that when I get to close to something it buzzes for a moment. It's not the worst thing in the world, but i have noticed it a few times.
    Other than that, these really are a great option.
