Update - We have now received our first Phonak Titanium hearing aid, please see the video below for a better look at how small they are.
This new IIC (invisible in canal) hearing aid from Phonak is made out of the metal titanium. Is this a gimmick? No, it is useful from several standpoints.
They can make it a lot thinner, this results in a 26% size reduction compared to what they could do before with the normal hard acrylic shells.
In the past some people with sensitive ears haven't been able to wear plastic hearing aids and so either couldn't wear discreet hearing aids, or had to go to the expense of having them gold plated. Just like gold, titanium is non-reactive to people's skin.
15 times more so in fact. Hearing aids are known to occasionally have accidents. Having a hearing aid that is less likely to get shattered to uselessness if you stand on it is mainly appealing to those who have done exactly that at some point.
The Virto B-Titanium 90 is the top of in the range and has the same new Autosense operating system as the Audeo Belong 90 that came out September 2016. The main features have been written about already on the Belong 90 page so click here to read more about that. The main points to note are that the Titanium 90 has no rechargeable, CROS/BICROSs or wireless function.
