Phonak Audeo V70 Hearing Aids

The Phonak Audeo V70

The Audeo V70 is the Advanced or second to top Receiver-In-Canal (RIC) hearing aid range from Phonak. RIC devices are hugely popular because they are also hugely versatile covering many types of hearing loss. They are also pretty discreet options. As we have said before, RIC devices do have their pros and cons, and they are not suitable for everyone. Even if they are suitable for you, there is clear information you need to understand to get the best out of them. You can read all of the details on our Hearing Aid Types page. 

The Audeo V (for Venture, the name of the chipset) replaces the Audeo Q (for Quest) hearing aid family. Phonak have introduced updated styles with newly designed casings. They have also made them available in the usual colours, both skin and hair type for discretion and loud fashion colours for the braver among us. As an advanced hearing aid the devices deliver the best clarity available in many challenging listening situations. Phonak have also made much about the new Venture platforms handling of music sounds. The Audeo V70 has now been replaced, you can take a look at all of the latest Phonak digital hearing aids hereAlternatively, you can take a look at all the best hearing aid brands here

Hearing Aid Types

As with the rest of the Audeo range, there are four behind the ear models which  are the V70-10 which takes a size 10 battery, the Audeo V70-312 which takes a size 312 battery. The Audeo V70-312T is the same again but with the addition of a telecoil receiver for a loop system. The Audeo V70-13 is the largest and fits a size 13 battery.

Technology & Features

The Phonak Audeo V70 contains some outstanding technology. It has 16 sound processing channels and a wide range of programs and features to help you to hear in challenging environments. Phonak have retained many of the features from the flagship V90 range but of course they have been dumbed down somewhat. 

The dust proof coating is also water repellent, ensuring that your hearing aid stays in great working order for longer. The V70  also benefits from Phonak's Binaural VoiceStream TechnologyTM   which allows one hearing aid to recognise speech sounds and transmit the speech to both hearing aids in real time. This technology works alongside various other features to give you the best hearing clarity in different challenging listening situations.

AutoSense OS

Phonak autosense iconSo what is AutoSense OS? AutoSense is in effect the operating system or management system in the hearing aids. It analyses the sound environment you are in and makes changes to how other features and technology within the hearing aid is working. It is the overall feature that ensures you are having a good listening experience. It is a completely automatic feature that seamlessly alters your hearing aids to your changing listening environment. The blurb says - AutoSense OS accurately captures the precise listening environment you are in, changing when it needs to, to provide you with a comfortable listening experience throughout your day, which is pretty accurate.

Speech in Loud Noise

Phonak speech in loud noise iconThe feature helps you focus in on the single voice you want to hear from a noisy crowd. When noise reaches a level that makes understanding one person in a crowd difficult, StereoZoom, Phonak's excellent microphone management system is automatically activated, allowing you to focus on the voice you want to hear and ignore the noise you don't.

Speech in 360

Phonak speech in 360 iconThis is as it sounds, this feature is designed to help you focus in on the single voice you want to hear from a noisy crowd. In essence, this is a setting on the hearing aids microphone management system. When noise reaches a level that makes understanding one person in a crowd difficult, StereoZoom, Phonak's excellent microphone management system is automatically activated, allowing you to focus on the voice you want to hear and ignore the noise you don't. Stereozoom (fancy isn't it?) is basically the microphones of the hearing aids focusing in a very narrow beam. This helps to reduce the effects of noise and allow you to hear the speaker a little better.

Listening Programmes

As with the V90 you have a number of automatic programmes, however, with the V70 you lose speech in car and comfort in echo. Nevertheless, It is a multi programme aid and the programmes include;

  • Music, giving you better clarity when listening to your favourite music.
  • Comfort in Noise, reduces loud noise to make your hearing more comfortable.
  • Speech in Noise, focuses your hearing to the front, reducing noise behind you.
  • Calm Situation, adjusts your hearing aids for comfort and better hearing in quiet environments and one to one conversations.

Features

Stereo Zoom

Stereo zoomThis feature is designed to focus the hearing aids automatically on the clearest speech sound they can pick up. Ideal for noisy environments where there is background conversation.

How does it work?

This is part of the microphone management system in the hearing aids, Phonak's microphone management has always been top notch. In essence it focuses the microphones in a narrow beam, allowing you the best opportunity to hear the voice. 

Zoom Control

Zoom controlRather than just focusing on sounds in front of you, this features can focus on speech sounds to the side or behind you. This is ideal for situations where you cannot easily turn to face the speaker, such as when you are driving and trying to listen to directions from your passengers.

How does it work

Yep, you guessed it, microphone management. It simply changes the focus of the microphones to where the speech is coming from. 

UltraZoom

UltrazoomDirectional microphones allow you to pick up the sound from all around you giving you a wide range to hear sound. The ultrazoom feature narrows this range to focus on a small area where someone is speaking. This gives you better speech understanding and reduces the effect of background noise. I don't think I need to explain this one, it is just another strategy that the microphone management uses. 

Speech in Wind

Speech in windAgain, if you spend any time outside at all, this is a great programme to have, setting it up as a manual programme allows the professional to customise it further to your taste. When you are outside, the sound of the wind can drown out all conversation.

How does it work?

This programme works out which hearing aid is getting the better speech signal and using the Binaural VoiceStream Technology sends the speech to both hearing aids. This improves speech clarity and also reduces the effect of wind noise.

Flexcontrol and FlexVolume

The Flexcontrol and FlexVolume programs give the wearer more control over their hearing. It enables the wearer to fine tune their hearing aids for better hearing in different environments.

Whistleblock

Whistle BlockThis feedback elimination feature recognises the feedback sound and removes it before you know it is there. As with the Echoblock feature, it can do this without sound distortion.

NoiseBlock

Noise blockThis feature recognises continuous background sounds, such as traffic noise through a window, the dishwasher or office photocopier. It can reduce the volume of this sound so that speech is clearer and easier to understand.

Windblock

WindblockRemoves the sound of the wind when you are outside, this works in the absence of speech, in essence it turns down the wind quite aggressively. 

SoundRelax

Sound RelaxSudden loud sounds can be unpleasant or painful for those with hearing loss, particularly when it is amplified by your hearing aid. The SoundRelax feature can soften the impact of sudden loud sounds without distorting the other sounds around you.

Real Ear Sound

Real Ear SoundThis feature allows the hearing aids to mimic the way the ear naturally listens. This, as well as the receiver in canal design, means that it is easier for you to determine the direction the sound is coming from and you get a more natural experience.

DuoPhone

Duo PhoneThis feature is designed to make it easier to talk on the telephone. The hearing aid on the telephone side transmits the speech to both hearing aids simultaneously, which improves speech clarity whilst reducing the sound of distractions in the room. This is the feature that the acoustic phone programme uses to help you hear a call. 

SoundRecover

Sound RecoverThis feature takes the high frequency sounds which are outside your hearing range, such as children's voices and high pitched sounds, and makes them easier to hear.

QuickSync

Quick SyncChanging the volume or setting on one hearing aid will automatically change the other hearing aid as well. This synchronisation makes sure the hearing aids are always working together.

Tinnitus Balance Noise Generator
