A superb solution for individuals with unaidable hearing loss on one side and better hearing on the other.
Many people have very poor hearing in one ear. For years, they have gone through life feeling lopsided. They can’t hear conversation from the “bad” ear side. They always try to position the person they are having a conversation with on the “good” ear side. Or they always have to turn their head so the “good” ear is toward the speaker. When sirens sound or the phone rings, they can’t tell where the sound is coming from.
Up to this point, the solutions were worse than the problem! You could wear a hearing device on both sides with a wire connecting them around your neck. CUTE! Or you could wear a huge hearing device on each side. Not very attractive.
Now Phonak, the largest hearing aid distributor in the world, has come out with their new CROS hearing aid designs. A CROS hearing aid (placed on the “bad” side”) sends a wireless signal to the hearing device in the “good” side. Several things make this an exciting option: 1. The new aids are small and lightweight, just like the other new designs on the market. 2. You can even get small, in-the-canal hearing devices that can hold the CROS components. 3. The hearing devices use the latest, most technologically advanced computer chips and programs so the sounds are clearer and there is less background noise.
Introducing Phonak CROS, the smallest, wireless system ever that sends sounds from your poorer ear to your better ear, helping you to hear sound regardless of where it comes from. Phonak CROS can be matched with any wireless Phonak Spice hearing instrument. Whether in a custom shell or behind-the-ear instrument, your choice has never been so extensive. A wide color range makes Phonak CROS especially appealing.
