Phonak Audéo Paradise

More Bluetooth connections - Paradise can pair with up to 8 Bluetooth devices and have 2 active Bluetooth connections. This makes switching between your two favorite devices much easier. Marvel only offered one active connection.

Tap controls - You can double-tap the Paradise hearing aids to accept/end phone calls, pause/result streaming, and access voice assistants like Siri and Google Assistant.

Motion sensing - A new ultra-low power accelerometer detects when you move and adjusts the hearing aid microphones and noise cancellation settings.

Clearer speech in quiet settings - A new “Speech Enhancer” feature amplifies the peaks of soft speech to provide clearer speech when you’re in a quiet environment.

Improved noise cancellation - Phonak is introducing “Dynamic Noise Cancellation”, which is an automated spatial noise cancellation system that works in combination with a directional beamformer microphone system.

PRISM sound processing chip - The new chip offers double the memory and enables better Bluetooth connectivity.

What Are Bluetooth Hearing Aids?

A hearing aid is a wearable, electronic device typically prescribed by an audiologist that amplifies sound for the user. A Bluetooth hearing aid has the capacity to connect to other electronic devices like smartphones, laptops and televisions, which means it can be controlled through the user’s device of choice rather than through tiny on-device buttons or a remote. It also means users can play audio from their devices—such as music, movies or phone calls—directly through their hearing aid’s speakers.

How Do Bluetooth Hearing Aids Work?

Just like other devices with Bluetooth connectivity, Bluetooth hearing aids connect to other devices by using radio frequency to transmit data. The radio waves involved are weak—much weaker than those used for cell phone calls, for example—and as such only travel short distances. Connecting devices via Bluetooth is called “pairing” them and is most often done through an accompanying smartphone app. Beside this ability to connect to other devices within a short distance, Bluetooth hearing aids function the same as traditional hearing aids.
