Includes 5-year Warranty and Charger
Phonak are one the largest hearing aid manufacturers in the world. They are based in Switzerland and are part of the Sonova Group, which includes Unitron.
Audéo is Phonak Receiver in the canal (RIC) range of hearing aids and the Belong Audéo was the first rechargeable RIC hearing aid Phonak launched.
The Audéo BR is Phonak‚ rechargeable model. Once fully charged, the battery should last a full day with up to 80 minutes of wireless streaming. ¬†As the hearing aid has to be manually turned on when taken out of the charger by pressing a push button for a few seconds, it may not be ideal for users with dexterity or eyesight problems.
Phonak developed a new Bluetooth protocol for Audéo Direct designed to enable Marvel hearing aids to connect to any Bluetooth device, meaning nearly all phones, tablets and PC.
If you are looking to replace a lost Belong Audéo, we would recommend you try and get an upgrade to the new Marvel or Paradise range. Marvel Paradise will automatically turn on when taken out of the charger and connects directly to Bluetooth devices. For Belong Audéo Direct to work biannual VoiceStream had to be removed and calls are only streamed to one ear.
Belong Audéo is available in a number of technology levels which can be found by searching our product pages. Each model has four ranges of technology available: B30, B50, B70 and B90. The higher the number, the better the technology. You can see and compare the features on our product pages.
The chip runs AutoSense 2.0 software. Autosense constantly scans the listening environment and fine tunes the audio with up to 200 adjustments for an optimised listening experience.
Binaural VoiceStream (not available on all models) allows for real time stereo streaming between the hearing aids allowing for improved speech understanding in challenging listening situations.
