- 1994 – The first multi-microphone designs

Sound Processing by Phonak
Enhanced digital performance, crisper sound clarity, the capacity to cancel background noise and sound therapy features to help with tinnitus management are all available from Phonak in their traditional hearing aid designs.
The exclusive capacity to stream the full audio bandwidth in real-time as well as bi-directionally make it possible for Phonak devices to deliver improved sound quality while AI allows your hearing aids to recognize and automatically adapt to more listening situations than ever before.
Phonak’s Hearing Aid Features
Android and iPhone connectivity as well as the capacity to link to numerous Bluetooth compatible digital devices from your hearing aids, allowing pairing for up to eight Bluetooth-enabled devices while two can be simultaneously connected, are means of providing Phonak users with a seamless listening experience.
Additional innovations include integrated tinnitus management, advanced battery charging capabilities, improved connectivity and the capacity to control and personalize sound quality, multifunctionality and remote support by using the myPhonak app, facilitating improved device support and programming from a remote location.
