When Phonak’s new Audéo Marvel hearing aid was nominated as a finalist in the US Consumer Electronics & Information Technology category in the 2019 Edison Awards, I thought it was worth taking a look.
Why Phonak Audéo Marvel is a finalist for an Edison Award
To be nominated for the Edison Award, a product needs to be a real innovation. It also needs to prove it’s of true value to consumers. And it needs to have a distinct advantage over other available products.
According to the product manufacturers Sonova, Phonak Audéo Marvel is “not just a great hearing aid. It’s a multifunctional marvel.”
Suitable for people with mild to severe hearing loss, here’s what makes the Phonak Audéo Marvel different:
Clear, rich sound
Using a sophisticated operating system called AutoSense OS™ 3.0, this hearing aid gives wearers high-quality sound in everyday listening environments. They’re especially effective where there’s background noise – such as in a restaurant or around the dinner table. This means it takes less effort to listen to conversations.
It comes with Bluetooth® connectivity
This is really convenient for smartphone users. Your hearing aids work a bit like wireless headphones. By connecting your hearing aids to your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone or tablet, and your TV, you can hear the sound directly to your hearing aids.
Call people hands-free
Connecting to your smartphone or tablet means that you can talk to friends and family hands-free. The built-in microphones pick-up your voice, and you can answer calls with the touch of a button.
Having to fiddle with hearing aid batteries can be a nuisance for many hearing aid wearers. The Phonak Audéo Marvel is rechargeable, so there’s no need for small batteries. Just charge your hearing aids up overnight using the lithium-ion rechargeable technology, and you’re ready to go all day long.
Easy to adjust
The hearing aids can also be fine-tuned remotely using a smartphone app. This can save you a trip to your hearing specialist if you need to adjust your hearing aids to the sound environment.
