Phonak introduces titanium hearing aid

June 14th 2017

In a world's first, Phonak have introduced a hearing aid made from titanium. They are the first and only hearing aid brand to use such material. They say that it offers huge benefits for the user, it means that they can make smaller, stronger hearing aids.

Virto B-Titanium 

A Titanium Hearing Aid

Phonak say that with Virto B-Titanium the company once again demonstrates its role as a leading technology innovator. They have combined the benefits offered by titanium as a hearing aid shell with the latest 3D printing technology to produce the smallest custom instrument in Phonak’s history.

Half as Thin

Titanium allows Phonak to produce a shell that’s half as thin as traditionally has been possible. this results in a deep, comfortable fit that they say sets new standards for discretion. They say that the overall size is reduced significantly, thus increasing invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) fit rate by 64%. Which means that more people will be able to choose invisible hearing aids if they so wish. 

Virto B-Titanium will run on the new AutoSense OS™. This cutting-edge industry- only system analyzes sounds every 400 milliseconds and draws upon multiple features, blending them to create over 200 distinct settings to precisely match sound environments as you go.
