Phonak CROS Hearing Aids

Including Phonak CROS B Hearing Aids & Phonak CROS P Hearing Aids 

2021 Update:  This winter, Phonak will launch the Phonak CROS P hearing aid - a CROS hearing solution that is compatible with Phonak Paradise and includes Paradise's technology.  This will supersede the CROS B BTE styles, but not the ITE.


But, first an introduction to Phonak CROS B hearing aids

Phonak CROS B hearing aid devices use the Phonak Belong technology. When CROS B and an Audéo B hearing aid are fitted together, it enables clients with single-sided deafness to hear speech more accurately and better able to follow conversations from whatever direction. 

Using Binaural VoiceStream Technology the CROS B hearing aid wirelessly sends the sounds from the ear that has no hearing over to the better side.  The CROS B model superseded the Phonak CROS II hearing aids, which were built with Venture technology.

The Phonak CROS hearing aid is a specialist hearing instrument. It is specifically designed for people with no hearing at all on one side. The Phonak CROS aid is worn on the “dead” side and transmits sound to a hearing aid worn on the other ear. Please note, another Phonak hearing aid is required on the other ear to enable the sound to be received.


Phonak CROS Hearing Aids & Phonak BICROS Hearing Aids - What's the difference?

If the “good” side is near normal then the lowest technology hearing aid can be worn. If the “good” ear is impaired then higher technology hearing instruments can be considered. This configuration is called BICROS and may cost more if you choose a higher technology “receiving” hearing aid.  Phonak CROS is available in custom in-ear versions, as well as RIC and BTE behind-the-ear versions.

Features & Benefits


But first, Phonak CROS Hearing Aids Bluetooth & Marvel

Even though the Belong range has now been superseded by Marvel, it is still current with the CROS as there are no plans to bring out a Phonak Marvel CROS hearing aid. According to Phonak, the constant streaming between the aids, combined with the Bluetooth features of Marvel would use too much battery power.


Binaural Beamforming

Phonak uses their integrated StereoZoom system which has proven successful at binaural beamforming. It creates a very narrow beam to focus on single voices when in a crowd. This can deliver much better speech understanding when in background noise.


Phonak CROS B Hearing Aid Models

You can choose between five BTE hearing aid models and two ITE models in this range.  These are:
