Phonak Bolero Q70
The Bolero Q70 is part of the Quest range of BTE (Behind the Ear) hearing aids launched in 2012. It comes in four different models, a standard BTE, Micro BTE, Power BTE and Super Power BTE.The Bolero Q70 has been replaced by the Bolero V70 which you can read about here.

The Bolero Q is available at three different levels of technology with the Q70 being the mid-level of the range. It is an excellent hearing aid but does have fewer features and sound processing channels than the Q90.
You can personalise your Bolero Q70 as it has several colours to choose from, including some new hair and skin tone options.
Quest allowed Phonak to both improve the overall processing speed and sound quality of their hearing aids, and also create some innovative new features.
One of the most significant is Binaural VoiceStream. This feature means that your hearing aids will now communicate wirelessly with each other and share information to ensure you are always receiving the clearest signal. Thanks to this new technology, Phonak have also been able to add the Acclimatisation Manager which can automatically detect different listening environments and adjust the amplification to maintain quality and clarity.
Each channel processes different frequencies so the hearing aids can be tuned for your individual hearing needs
Improves the audibility of higher frequency sounds
Using binaural microphone technology, this improves both speech capturing and noise cancellation
Soundflow detects even the smallest changes in your environment and smoothly adapts your program to retain listening comfort.
This feature will soften the impact of sudden loud noises to minimise discomfort
Whistleblock, Noiseblock and Windblock
These features are all designed to minimise distortion by keeping out unwanted background noises and eliminating feedback.
Acoustically Optimised Vent (AOV)
The AOV is designed to reduce occlusion which is that â€˜blocked up feeling that some hearing aid users experience. It is designed to keep the sound both clear and natural.
Like the Q90, the Bolero Q70 is also compatible with Phonak's wireless accessory range. This means your hearing aids can be connected to devices such as your television or phone
This streamer is worn around the neck and transmits sounds directly into your hearing aids when used together with the other accessories.

When used with the Compilot, this accessory will stream the sound from your TV into your hearing aids. It also doubles as a charger for your Compilot
This is an easy to use, one touch display remote control that allows adjustment of programmes and volume.
This is a small remote control that can be attached to a set of keys
The RemoteMic is a device that allows you to enjoy a normal conversation whatever the environment by streaming a person's voice directly into your hearing aids.
