Phonak Marvel Hearing Aids Launched in The UK, Here is What We know



As we reported Phonak is rolling out the new Audeo Marvel across the world. On Friday the 2nd of November the devices were launched in the UK and we learnt a little more about the range and its availability. Only two of the devices will be introduced initially and they are available for pre-order right now. Phonak UK expects to be delivering those orders from November the 22nd. Let's talk about the Phonak Marvel.

Phonak Audeo Marvel

New Programmes New AutoSense 3.0

The Marvel range will have two new programmes available to it, streamed speech and streamed music. Both of course designed to get the very best from the audio streaming capability that the devices have. AutoSense (which is basically the management system for the hearing aids) has been upgraded again with additional training. The deeper the training that these systems are given, the better the learning and the better they work in the real world. Phonak are quoting research about improved listening ability and reduced listening effort amongst other benefits. 

Binaural Voice Stream Technology (BVST)

Phonak has become quite famous for their BVST features, they use real-time Binaural Voice Streaming to deliver real benefits in different types of sound situations. In the original Made For Any Phone hearing aids, BVST didn't work. They have fixed this in the Marvel range and all of the automatic sound programmes and features they are famous for work within the Marvel range. 

Marvel Hearing Aid Models

As I said, the Audeo Marvel will be available in five hearing aid models, every one of those models will be available across the four levels of technology so that means that Phonak will offer rechargeable hearing aids at the entry level for the first time. I have discussed pricing ranges below, they are really educated guesses based on experience and the price ranges cover the entire platform from the Marvel 30 to the Marvel 90 level of technology. The models are as follows:

Phonak

Audeo Marvel R

Audeo B90-Direct RIC hearing aid

The Audeo Marvel R is Phonak's latest rechargeable Made For Any Phone hearing aid, it is quite discreet and can be used with several receiver variations meaning it can cover a lot of hearing losses. The device will connect directly to any Bluetooth enabled Mobile phone and will stream phone calls and audio in stereo. The devices are available from November 22 in the UK and should be rolled out globally through November and December.

Expected Price

From £695.00 to £2200.00 in the UK. From €1200.00 to €3000.00 in Ireland. From $1400.00 to $3200.00 in the USA.
