The B90-Titanium is the smallest custom device in the Virto B90 technology range. It is 3D printed in the metal Titanium, that makes it 15 times stronger and 26% smaller than previous Phonak custom hearing aids. This is the first major revamp of CIC/IIC production in decades.
Other Benefits of the Unique Titanium Shell combined with smaller electronics:
- First Custom in the canal hearing aid with an IP68 rating making it highly water resistant and dust proof
- Extremely Hypo-allergenic and suitable to those people normally allergic to acrylic
- Durable – meaning less likelihood of repairs
- Redesigned microphone port removing the need for microphone protection and significantly reducing microphone breakdowns or blockages.
- 20% more battery life on its size 10 battery compare to Phonak’s older custom ranges
- The ability to suit Severe hearing loss, due to more available space inside the thinner shell and the redesigned electronics.
- Less blocked feeling (occlusion) with the new AOVo option made possible by the thinner but stronger material.
- Deeper fitting, more discreet fitting when used with Phonak’s new Otoblock designed for use with the Titanium
- More secure fitting in the canal due to its carefully designed 3D printed texture, increasing surface area and reducing slippage.
It includes an automatic program (AutoSenseOS), and technology to improve listening comfort (advanced noise reduction, Wind Block, Sound Relax, and EchoBlock). In order to create their smallest device, Phonak has removed wireless capability, directionality and the features associated with these technologies (DuoPhone, Speech in Loud Noise program, Speech in 360 program, Speech in Car program, and the Speech in Wind program). As a result, the device does not perform as well in challenging listening environments as other devices in the B90 range. The B90 Titanium is a suitable option for those who have no difficulties hearing in noise, and are happy to sacrifice performance for size.
The Virto B90-Titanium hearing aid is based on the latest 24 Bit chipset, which results in exceptional Sound Quality, minimal distortion in loud environments and best in class music fidelity.
