The Full-Shell is the largest custom device in the Virto V50-13 range. The large size is often more suitable for those who have dexterity or eyesight concerns, but most who have no concerns in these areas will opt for a smaller device. The V50 has an improved automatic program (adjusting the hearing aid settings across three listening environments), noise reduction and directional microphone technology. The V50 Full Shell includes DuoPhone (allowing phone calls to be heard in both ears). It is a good option for those who have mild-to-moderate difficulties hearing in the presence of background noise.
The Phonak Virto V50 13 FS hearing aid is based on the latest 24Bit chipset, which results in exceptional Sound Quality, minimal distortion in loud environments and best in class music fidelity.
AUTOMATIC PROGRAM (AUTOSENSE OS): Automatically identifies the listening environment and blends feature elements from two (calm situation, and speech in noise) programs to select the best hearing aid settings for that situation.
DIRECTIONAL MICROPHONES (ULTRAZOOM STANDARD) Focuses the hearing aid microphones in front of you while reducing noise from the sides and behind.
FREQUENCY COMPRESSION (SOUND RECOVER): Compresses sounds from areas where hearing is most damaged, to an area with better hearing. Designed to improve audibility for those with poor high-frequency hearing.
BINAURAL COORDINATION (QUICKSYNC): Co-ordinates the hearing aids so that adjustments made to one device are automatically made on the other device.
TINNITUS RELIEF (TINNITUS BALANCE): Emits a soft noise that is designed to distract attention away from an individual’s tinnitus.
