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 which consists of 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 measures the individuals 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 for real time stereo streaming between the hearing aids allowing for improved 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.
