The V90-13 Half-Shell is Phonak’s mid-size custom device in their V90 range. It offers a compromise between size and ease-of-use for those with dexterity/visual concerns but wanting a discrete device. It features AutoSenseOS (including a Speech in Loud Noise, and Speech in Car destination), as well as advanced directionality and noise reduction. The V90-Half-Shell also includes additional (manual) programs to assist with hearing outdoors in wind, and hearing in the car. It also includes technology to improve listening in reverberant environments (Echo Block). The V90-13 Half Shell is suitable for those who have severe difficulties hearing in background noise, however those wanting a discrete device tend to prefer the MC style which offers the same technology inside a much smaller casing.
The Virto V90-13 HS is based on the latest 24Bit chipset, which results in exceptional Sound Quality, minimal distortion in loud environments and best in class music fidelity.
