Phonak's 'Zoom technology' in a nearly invisible hearing instrument (click for larger version)
November 08, 2012
Audiologists know that the biggest problem for people with hearing loss is the challenge to hear in noisy environments such as restaurants and the car. It's not only difficult to hear, it's challenging to focus on a person and understand them. Phonak technology has effectively addressed this challenge by developing a series of features called "Zoom technology" designed to actually empower people to personalize the performance of their hearing instruments in real time in those environments.
Imagine being at a big table at a restaurant, and with a touch of a button you can actually zoom in on a single conversation with a friend across the table while suppressing other background noise. Or drive in the car and have your Phonak autoZoom feature automatically track and focus on speech, regardless of the direction without the need to face the speaker. Our own ears can't even do that! The result for many has been remarkable.
