Sonova leads the way in new hearing technology

SONOVA Holding AG, the world’s leading provider of hearing solutions, continues to set new standards with the introduction of a broad range of innovative products.

With Bolero™ B-PR, Phonak extends the Belong™ platform and its groundbreaking lithium-ion rechargeable technology to the new Bolero B family of behind-the-ear hearing devices. Phonak is also unveiling its smallest custom device it has ever made — the Virto™ B-Titanium, a tiny custom hearing instrument made from titanium.

“Our new portfolio of rechargeable and discreet solutions clearly demonstrates why Sonova continues to lead the way in hearing performance, ease of use, and design,” said Lukas Braunschweiler, CEO of Sonova. “Only six months after the highly-successful launch of Audéo™ B-R, Phonak continues to build on this momentum with its first lithium-ion rechargeable BTE and new Virto B-Titanium, the tiniest custom device it has ever produced. By continuing to provide unique life-changing solutions to our customers, we demonstrate our unwavering commitment to push the limits of technology while time and again setting new standards for the industry.”

Satisfied with Phonak

According to a recent study, results show that more than 9 out of 10 hearing aid wearers were “very satisfied” with battery life of their Phonak rechargeable hearing aids, with ease of use being identified as the number one advantage across both hearing aid wearers and hearing care professionals. Furthermore, the study found that 88 percent of hearing care professionals would recommend Phonak rechargeable technology to their fellow colleagues. With Bolero B-PR, Phonak extends the Belong platform including its groundbreaking built-in lithium-ion rechargeable technology to a powerful BTE. Bolero B-PR comes with rechargeable technology that is rated highly satisfactory among professionals and hearing aid wearers.

Sonova has been advancing the industrial use of 3D printing technology for many years. At the beginning of the millennium, Sonova was one of the very first companies to start digitally producing custom shells for in-the-ear hearing aids and earpieces. Today, the company produces hundreds of thousands of custom-made products every year across the globe.

With Virto B-Titanium, Sonova once again displays its role as a leading innovator, combining the benefits of titanium with the latest 3D printing technology to make the smallest custom instrument in Phonak’s history.
