Phonak Hearing Aids & Reviews

Phonak are a Swiss manufacturer who are part of the Sonova group. Sonova also own the hearing aid manufacturer Unitron. Their UK head office can be found in Warrington, Cheshire. As of 2012, the Sonova Group took full ownership of David Ormerod Hearing centres, which in turn, own Boots hearingcare. Therefore, there is a strong likelihood that if you’ve been to Boots, you’ve been recommended Phonak Hearing aids.

Phonak rank within the top 3 hearing aid manufacturers in the world and their products are often favoured by audiologists. Their technology is arguably the best in the world and their product design is innovative. They have been in business for over 50 years and are represented in more than 100 countries worldwide.

In 2010, Phonak upgraded their whole product range to incorporate much faster microchips (called Spice). This new computer chip which is the “brain” inside the hearing aid was cutting edge at the time and was twice as fast as the previous generation. These models are no longer widely available due to their age but can be recognized by the letter ‘S’ (for example Audeo S9).

In 2012, Phonak launched the "Quest" processor. This was an upgrade to the previous "Spice" chip and superseded the previous Ambra and Solana models.

In January 2015, Phonak launched their latest breed of digital hearing aids with a new microprocessor called "Venture". This is a significant upgrade to the previous "Quest" chip. The very latest models are the Audeo and Bolero V90 and V70 which supersede the Q90 and Q70 models. Caution: Some retailers are offering the older Q series aids at reduced prices. This may on first inspection appear to be a good deal but most people would be better off getting an aid from current V series even if it were a lower tier aid, rather than going for the older, slower technology.

For information on all the Phonak models which consist of different styles and types including in the ear (ITE), behind the ear (BTE) and receiver in the ear (RITE) see our pricelist or call us on 0800 567 7721.
