Phonak Marvel Virto
Includes 5-year Warranty
Phonak is one the largest hearing aid manufacturers in the world. They are based in Switzerland and are part of the Sonova Group, which includes Unitron.
The Phonak Marvel Virto (Virto M) was released in 2020. Marvel is the name of the platform operating the hearing aid, and Virto is the name Phonak uses for any hearing aid made to fit in the ear.
Phonak Virto Marvel Technology
Phonak developed a new Bluetooth protocol for Marvel designed to enable Marvel hearing aids to connect to any Bluetooth device, meaning nearly all phones, tablets and PC.
Marvel also allows for true hands-free use of a mobile phone; keep your phone in your pocket and answer your calls by pressing a button on the hearing aid.
Phonak Marvel runs on the Sword 3.0 chip with 42 million transistors.
The chip runs the new AutoSense 3.0 software. AutoSense constantly scans the listening environment and fine-tunes the audio with up to 200 adjustments for an optimised listening experience.
All Marvel Virto hearing aids are custom-made to fit your ears. Phonak uses biometric calibration to measure the individual’s ear anatomy. 3-D modelling software identifies over 1,600 biometric data points to calculate calibration settings for each Virto M hearing aid. The result is a 2db improvement in directionality and therefore improved hearing performance in noisy situations.
Improved Binaural VoiceStream allows real-time stereo streaming between the hearing aids, improving speech understanding in challenging listening situations.
The Phonak Marvel Remote app allows users to make multiple adjustments to the hearing aids.
Phonak Marvel allows for remote hearing care. This means you can have a face-to-face video appointment with an audiologist who can then adjust the hearing aids remotely via the Internet.
Phonak has also released a new app called Speech to Text. This app can transcribe speech to text so the user can read what is being said in real-time.
Roger Direct Compatible Technology is built into Marvel. This means Marvel hearing aids can communicate directly with Roger‚ wireless microphones. Roger Microphones bridge the gap in hearing ability when background noise is present and where there is a distance from a speaker (more than 2m).
Marvel Virto is available in several technology levels, which can be found by searching our product pages. Each model has four ranges of technology available: M30, M50, M70 and M70. The higher the number, the better the technology. You can view and compare the features between the models below.
