The Audeo Q 70 was launched in 2013 and used to be the "advanced" (second from top) level of RIC (Receiver In Canal) hearing aid from Phonak. It replaced the previous Audeo S7. The ‘Q’ refers to Phonaks old sound processing chip technology known as Quest.
The Audeo Q70 is available in three styles and offers a choice of colours ranging from traditional to bold.
- Audeo Q-312 – A cosmetic looking hearing aid that offers wireless capability and the new Tinnitus Balance Sound Generator
- Audeo Q-312T – This has an attractive, slightly larger design and wireless capability. It also features the Tinnitus Balance Sound Generator and Telecoil.
- Audeo Q-10 – This is the small non-wireless model that incorporates the Tinnitus Balance Sound Generator
The Audeo Q 70 has similar features to the previous Audeo S 5 and also has some new Binaural VoiceStream ones. This means your hearing aids will actually communicate with each other and work together to improve your hearing.
- Tinnitus Balance Sound Generator – Using a range of sounds, this feature helps relieve the symptoms of tinnitus. It also has the new Tinnitus Balance App which is compatible with Apple and Android devices to give access to a wide range of sounds.
- Acclimatisation Manager – This alters your hearing aid’s amplification levels automatically but also allows for manual adjustment.
Other features include
- 16 Channels – Hearing aid channels process a range of frequencies so the more you have, the more specifically it can be programmed for your individual loss.
- Ultrazoom/Stereozoom- Binaural microphone applications which help with speech capturing and noise cancellation.
- Whistleblock – This helps to eliminate any irritating feedback sounds that may occur.
- Soundrecover – This feature improves your ability to hear higher frequency sounds.
- Noiseblock – This helps to suppress any unwanted background noise.
- Soundrelax – This helps to cushion any sudden or unexpected loud noises, ensuring listening comfort.
- Windblock – This helps you to continue to hear clearly, even in windy situations.
- Soundflow– Detects any subtle changes in your listening environment and uses a range of programmes to adapt automatically.
The Audeo Q 70 features wireless models which can be connected to Phonak’s range of accessories.
- Phonak Compilot – Streamer worn around the neck
- Phonak TV Link S – Tv transmitter/compilot charger
- Phonak Mypilot – One touch display screen remote control
- Phonak PilotOne – Basic remote control
In conclusion, the Phonak Audeo Q70 is now a reasonable mid level hearing aid for those on a budget who don't mind going for older technology, but it has little to make it stand out as so many other hearing aids have been released in the meantime. It is available in a range of colours to suit any individual preference. If you are interested in this technology but would prefer a different style of hearing aid then you may want to try the BTE (Behind the Ear) model, the Bolero Q70 or the ITE (In The Ear) model, the Virto Q70.
