A hearing aid that doesn’t require you to change batteries.
Swiss manufacturer Phonak has just launched the next generation of rechargeable hearing aid technology that will see game changing benefits to both current hearing aid wearers and those who want an effortless hearing solution.
Audiologists, Eugene Chang and Michael Wong started their careers almost 20 years ago at Australian Hearing and the Victorian Deaf Society respectively. During their time in clinical practice, the hearing care industry has seen a tremendous improvement in audiological science and hearing aid technology.
Gone are the days of big, inconvenient and bulky hearing aids. In recent years, we have seen hearing aids go fully digital, communicate with TV and smartphones, shrink dramatically in size to near invisible and become infinitely more powerful, useful and efficient across a broader range of listening situations.
In the first of its kind, the new Phonak Audéo B-R rechargeable hearing aid does not require disposable batteries. Instead, it uses a rechargeable built-in lithium-ion battery that provides 24 hours* of hearing with one simple charge. In addition, should you forget to charge your hearing aid, a 30 minute fast charging option can provide 6 hours of battery life. For those on the road or doing short trips, the Phonak Audéo B-R comes with a portable charging case that can recharge both hearing aids for up to seven days without any external power source.

Along with the rechargeable feature, Phonak has also improved their sound processing capability with the new Autosense OSTM. Internal research undertaken by Phonak showed that with the Autosense OSTM sound processing platform, clients reported:
- Improved speech understanding in noisy environments
- Better speech understanding in everyday listening situations and
- Decrease effort when listening to conversations in a car.
So what do all these changes mean for you?
Rechargeable hearing aids address one of the biggest concerns we get from our clients – the hassle and need to constantly change hearing aid batteries.
Eugene, Michael and their team are committed to providing a healthcare experience where partnership,
expertise, innovation and purpose come together. They share a genuine passion for helping you experience the joys of hearing. With rechargeable hearing aids, this experience is better than ever.
During the month of October 2016, Audéo B-R is available for a no-obligation 14 day trial at Alpha Hearing.
