Phonak Belong Bolero 50 Hearing Aids
The Latest Standard BTE Hearing Aids From Phonak including Their First Rechargeable BTE Hearing Aid
The Belong Bolero 50 platform is Phonak's latest standard BTE hearing aids range. Phonak have included a lithium-ion rechargeable BTE in the range, the Bolero B50-PR . It is the first Lithium-ion rechargeable BTE to the market and the first Standard rechargeable BTE for Phonak. They say that the battery pack will deliver 24 hours of hearing with one simple charge (expected results when fully charged, and up to 80 minutes wireless streaming time) which is in line with the performance of their Audeo B-R.

This range is a big step down from the B70 and the B90, in this technology level you lose access to a lot of pretty cool features that are available on the higher technology models. Your decision really depends on what you want from them, I mean you have to be reasonable about your expectations. If you want a good all round hearing aid that will do the job for your in less complex sound situations, then this is the range for you. If however, you want something to help you down the local pub on a Friday night, maybe you should look elsewhere. But that really goes for every hearing aid at this level of technology.
Belong Bolero B50 hearing aids are also automatic and will recognise and automatically adapt to your listening situations. The range runs on the new improved AutoSense OS and at this level of technology it has three automatic programmes that seamlessly blend together to give you the best hearing possible. AutoSense OS accurately analyses the sound environment and then precisely blends feature elements from those three programs to provide a seamless listening experience. You also get five extra manual programs to work with on this level for maximum fine tuning for different situations. The Belong Bolero 50 range is a full model line up with four Bolero B models. They include B50-M, B50-P, B50-SP, and the rechargeable B50-PR.
Bolero Belong 50 Prices
We would expect the range to be sold at prices from £1100.00 to £1400.00 in the UK depending on the Practice and location. We would expect the range to be sold at prices from €1400.00 to €1800.00 in Ireland. We would expect the range to be sold at prices from $1500.00 to $1900.00 in the USA. Just to be clear, we don't set prices here and they differ from Practice to Practice across the World so our expectations aren't binding, they are just a guess and some research. Always remember, we all like to shop around, but always be clear about what is being delivered. You will need care and support, make sure you will get it. You will also need your hearing aid validated or verified to get the best experience, paying a little more to ensure your experience is good, is not wasted money. That's our price rant for the day over, let's talk about the devices.
