Audeo V 10 Hearing Aids From Phonak
The Audeo V 10 is the smallest hearing device in the new Audeo Venture range. It runs on a size 10 battery and can be fitted with two types of receiver which allows it to cover many hearing losses. You can take a look at the latest digital hearing aids from Phonak here.
With the introduction of the new Venture chip Phonak re-designed the casings on their hearing aids. The Audeo V 10 has an updated casing with a push button that allows manual programme changes. The device is available in eleven different colour choices. Even though it is a highly discreet hearing aid it is also a versatile one.
Wireless but no telecoil
It can be fitted with an S or X receiver which allows it to cover most hearing losses down to severe. It is a wireless enabled hearing aid and can connect to all of Phonak's outstanding wireless accessories. However,the device has no telecoil receiver so it is not loop enabled.
It is a RIC device and so it suffers from the usual pros and cons of those devices. If you don't take care of it, the receivers are liable to fail. They can of course be easily replaced by your professional in the case of failure which probably makes it a better option.

Versatile, discreet, wireless but lacking a telecoil
The Audeo V range has been available for a while and the feedback we get from hearing professionals is that they are quite reliable. If you are looking for a versatile but discreet wireless enabled hearing aid, this might be the one for you.
I really think these are really strong offerings from Phonak, they are a great choice for discretion but just be aware of the possible drawbacks. As always, if you have any questions about the Audeo V 10, or any hearing aid, give us a shout.
