2020 Update: Phonak added M-Titanium to their Titanium range - Their latest generation of super discreet custom hearing aids made from their innovative titanium shell along with their Marvel technology.
What are Phonak Virto B-Titanium hearing aids?
The Phonak Virto B-Titanium hearing aids are the tiny custom-made in-ear version of the Belong hearing aid. It is actually what it appears to be – a Phonak hearing aid made from titanium. Rather than the usual hard acrylic used for hearing aid shells, this aid is made from paper-thin titanium.
Phonak Titanium Hearing Aids -Other IIC Hearing Aids
Often when people contact us and ask about the Phonak Virto B-Titanium hearing aids, it is usually because they are looking for a discreet and invisible hearing aid and with the Titanium being the most widely advertised, they believe that to be the main or only option. Whilst the Titanium is certainly a good hearing aid, it is worth noting similar options from other providers.
Introducing Phonak Virto M-Titanium hearing aids
In February 2020, another model was added to the Phonak Titanium hearing aids range. Phonak announced the launch of the Phonak Virto M-Titanium - the same unique titanium shell, but with the famous Marvel technology, instead of the Belong. The M-Titanium is the new generation of discreet and stylish custom-made hearing aids.
Some key factors of the Phonak M-Titanium M90 & M70 hearing aids:
High-performance: The Marvel technology offers great sound quality from the moment you are fitted with your custom made hearing aids. Combining innovation, design, performance, practicality and aesthetics.
The perfect fit: Due to the new Titanium FiGuide - over 50% of wearers get an even more discreet and comfortable fit.
The Phonak Titanium hearing aids Fitguide analyses how deep the hearing device can be put within the ear. Ear impressions are taken to the next level, as FitGuide provides flexibility (like your ear canal) to ensure a more secure and comfortable fit.
The Pro's and Cons
+ They are made from titanium and are therefore very hard to damage, the shell is 15 times stronger than hard acrylic.
+ Phonak is a reputable brand.
- The underlying technology is quite old. Whilst there have been a few software improvements, the hardware that is responsible for improving hearing was last upgraded in January 2015.
- Wireless signals cannot penetrate a titanium shell which means no ear to ear communication or Bluetooth
- With only two price points, the B90 and B70, they can be quite expensive for people who want a discreet aid but have no need for the extra features in a top-of-the-range hearing aid.
