Phonak hearing aids in the spotlight

May 03, 2019 in Hearing Aids

When it comes to hearing aid manufacturers, who are the star names? We look at one of the biggest brands out there: Phonak.

Hearing aids have come a long way in just a few short years. You’ll now find a flurry of discreet devices to keep you hearing better on the go.

Hearing aids are important. Left untreated, hearing loss can cause you to slowly disconnect from social events. As conversations become trickier to hear, the motivation to take part can fade, leading to feelings of isolation and loneliness. Hearing loss can even increase your risk of developing dementia.

Here we focus on one of the world’s leading hearing aid manufacturers, Phonak.

The Swiss aren’t just good at making watches Founded in Zurich in 1947 as AG für Elektroakustik, Phonak understands the impact of living with hearing loss, which its tagline ‘Life is on’ neatly encapsulates. It’s no surprise that Phonak is recognised as a leader in the hearing care industry.

If you want to rediscover all the experiences you love, a Phonak hearing aid could be for you.
