The Bolero B-PR delivers 24 hours of hearing with only one charge, while the Virto B-Titanium is the smallest custom instrument produced by Phonak.
The titanium shell of the Virto B-Titanium is half as thin as regular acrylic shells and are discreet when being worn. It is ideal for first-time hearing aid wearers as well. It increases the invisible-in-the-canal fit rate by 64% that allows the device to fit patients who have smaller ear canals. It also has an IP68 rating, making it resistant to water and dust.
Both the Virto B-Titanium and the Bolero B devices use Phonak’s operating system, AutoSense OS. AutoSense OS is able to analyze sound every 0.4 seconds using different features and can fuse the features together to make more than 200 distinct settings that precisely match sound environments—all automatically.
“The release of our lithium-ion rechargeable Audéo B-R was one of the most successful product launches in Phonak history,” said Thomas Lang, senior vice president of marketing at Phonak. “That’s why we are so excited to announce the extension of this pioneering rechargeable technology to the Bolero B-PR only 6 months later while simultaneously introducing Vitro B-Titanium—the tiniest custom instrument Phonak has ever produced. More than ever, these new products reinforce Phonak’s commitment to fast-paced innovation, ease of use and improved quality of life.”
Bolero B-PR and Virto B-Titanium can be purchased starting Feb. 27 in the U.S. and March for most countries in Europe.
