We are totally dedicated to ensuring our patients have the best hearing available to them, in as many social situations as is humanly possible.
Whether you already have Phonak Marvel hearing aids from us at Pindrop or you are yet to treat yourself, there are some major developments in the technology that we’d like to inform you of.
Just in case you didn’t know, Phonak is the world’s leading hearing aid provider and they have now introduced a product called Marvel 2.0, the next generation of Marvel technology developed to give hearing aid wearers even more hearing performance, more connectivity and more choice.
With Marvel 2.0, Phonak is making RogerDirect™ available to all Marvel hearing aids while expanding Marvel technology to more form factors to suit and fit your ears better. This means that whether you already have Marvel hearing aids or at yet to experience them, you have access to the latest technology without having to wear or use any extra streaming devices! RogerDirect enables you to stream sound directly from the person you want to hear into your hearing aid so you can hear them better in background noise. Phonak are quoting statistics that you can hear up to 62% better in social situations, without having to wear anything around your neck, creating a trouble-free hearing experience!
The new portfolio includes the Phonak Audéo™ M-RT, the world’s only all-in-one hearing aid combining direct connectivity with iOS and Android, T-coil (so you can use the loop systems you get in theatres and other public places) and rechargeability.
More hearing performance
Roger® technology from us at Pindrop, bridges the understanding gap in loud noise and over distance by wirelessly transmitting a speaker’s voice directly to the listener. However, until now, hearing aid wearers had to plug an extra receiver and/or audio shoe into their hearing aids or use an intermediary streamer to receive the Roger signal.
Marvel hearing aids with RogerDirect eliminate the need for extra components or accessories needed to receive the Roger signal, resulting in a device that’s up to 42% smaller. If you are an Audéo Marvel wearer already with us, you can access the RogerDirect feature via a short firmware upgrade which we will be contacting you to see us about in due course.
In addition to RogerDirect, Marvel hearing aids are now capable of pairing two Bluetooth audio devices at the same time. This is especially useful for our wearers who own two mobile phones, or for those who regularly stream from both a smartphone and any other Bluetooth device, including desktops, laptops, tablets and more. With the optional TV Connector, Marvel wearers can also stream high definition audio from their TVs directly to both hearing aids while keeping two Bluetooth slots open for their other devices.
One Marvellous App
You may or may not already have experience of the apps that can support hearing aid use these days. These allow the user to make their own adjustments to the hearing aids in real time to support sessions in between seeing us at Pindrop Hearing. There have been improvements to the app from Phonak with Marvel. In addition to existing Remote Support and Hearing Diary functionality, the enhanced myPhonak app now features more advanced customisation options including noise reduction, speech focus and more.
