Phonak Hearing Aids
As the producer of the first portable audio devices in 1950, as well as the world’s first BTE (behind-the-ear) hearing aid (Phonette) in 1969, Phonak has led the way when it comes to innovative hearing aid technology.
Phonak introduced the audio input technology that became the foundation for FM devices in 1979, which was followed by PICS, the first digitally programmed hearing aids with an analog processor.
AudioZoom and MicroLink were the first multi-microphone concepts developed by Phonak, which also developed the first nearly invisible FM receiver.
