Phonak’s wireless CROS transmitter for people with single-sided deafness.
The CROS microphone picks up speech from the unaidable ear and transmits it to a hearing aid on the better hearing ear. This allows people to hear speech from the side they have not heard from before.
“The CROS II is a marked improvement on the original Phonak CROS. One of the biggest improvements has been a better performance in noisy environment with increasing hearing aid technology on the good ear. While users typically don’t report improvement in localisation ability, they do report that it makes conversation much easier to follow when someone is speaking on their bad side.”
Requires a compatible hearing aid on the better ear.
